Have you been looking for that special someone in your life? Someone to hang out on the beach with, go out to eat with, snuggle with? Someone who loves a good belly rub or a scratch behind the ears. Wait, what?! Yes, if you’ve been thinking about bringing a furry friend into your life, today is a great day to do it! It’s Clear The Shelters Day. It’s a day to bring awareness to the overcrowding of animal shelters all across the country; a nationwide pet adoption initiative that aims to connect animals in need with a loving new home. Adoption fees are being dropped to only $20. $20! You can find that much money in the change that’s under your sofa cushions.

 

Many local shelters are participating, including the spcaLA here in Long Beach. There are a jillion reasons to adopt a pet. First of all, you’re no dummy. You’re not going to get a pet from a breeder or a store, because those are just puppy mills. That is a huge no-no.  Animals are good for your health and well-being. They give you unconditional love. Guys, dogs are total chick magnets. Most animals from shelters are already housebroken. Most importantly, you’ll be saving a life…
