Islip, NY – The Islip Town Animal Shelter recently participated in a nationwide “Clear the Shelters” event, which was sponsored in part by NBC Universal. More than 30 animal shelters in the New York Tri-State area teamed up with hundreds of animal shelters across the country to find new homes for thousands of homeless pets. Participating shelters offered incentives such as no-cost or reduced fee adoptions to attract potential adoptees. The Islip Animal Shelter offered to waive the adoption fee for anyone wishing to adopt on that day. In all, fourteen dogs, one cat, and one bird were adopted.
