Eighteen cats and four dogs found new forever homes on Aug. 17 when the Gloucester County Animal Shelter participated in the fourth annual Clear the Shelters event and waived adoption fees on all animals in the shelter.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “Eighteen cats and four dogs found new homes and there are 22 fewer animals at the shelter, that is a successful day. Clear the Shelters really helps promote adoption.”

Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco said that the Gloucester County Animal Shelter averages adopting out 15 cats per month.

“Clear the Shelters helped us adopt out more cats in one day then we usually can in one month.  It’s very satisfying to see the shelter animals and their new families together,” said DiMarco, who is the liaison to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter.
