Saturday’s ‘Clear the Shelters Day’ brought in more local animal shelter applicants

Eau Claire (WQOW) – On Saturday, the Eau Claire County Humane Association (ECCHA) took part in ‘National Clear the Shelters Day’. On Sunday, more than a dozen new applicants may begin emptying out those cages.

The association offered adoption fee discounts for cats one year or older, along with a free companion to wrap a bow on the feline package deal. Staff said their efforts were a success. An average day of applicants is between five and 10. On Saturday, they had 18.

"We’re averaging taking in anywhere from 20 to 25 animals a day, which is a lot of animals," said Crystal Louden of the Eau Claire Humane Association. "So, every application and every adoption is helpful. The four animals that went home yesterday, opened four new spots for us to help four new animals."

Nationwide, 900 shelters took part in the promotion. For more information on the ECCHA and their other promotions, see here.
