VIP Petcare to Sponsor Clear the Shelters Adoption Campaign



VIP Petcare will return as a sponsor of the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ annual Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption campaign. VIP Petcare will donate more than $200 of preventive veterinary services to individuals who adopt a pet at this event. The $200 includes one free dose each of prescription flea/tick and heartworm preventative medication.


The stations’ Clear the Shelters annual pet adoption campaign has become a popular event for communities all throughout the country and includes the participation of hundreds of animal shelters. On Saturday, August 19th, participating animal shelters will offer low cost or waived pet adoption fees. Since the effort was expanded nationally in 2015, the stations’ Clear the Shelters efforts have resulted in more than 70,000 pet adoptions.


“VIP Petcare’s continued support of the NBC and Telemundo-owned stations’ Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign will ensure that our stations and partner shelters deliver a memorable event for communities and pet adopters all across the country,” said Bruce Kallner, senior vice president of strategic sales and marketing, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. “We’re excited to work with a partner that values the importance of quality pet care and wellness and look forward to another successful Clear the Shelters day.”


VIP Petcare’s goal is to not only find forever homes for shelter and rescue pets, but to educate all pet owners on the importance of ongoing pet wellness care. The company is dedicated to keeping pets healthy, happy and safe. Through a network of over 2700 clinics nationwide, VIP Petcare provides vaccinations, diagnostic testing, microchipping and other wellness veterinary care to pets and their parents.


“We are honored to sponsor Clear the Shelters for the second consecutive year,” said Will Santana, CEO and founder of VIP Petcare. “Thousands of pets will find a home on August 19th and we are committed to ensuring they get a healthy start in their new life.”
