5pm at Petsmart, 369 Tarrytown Road, Greenburgh, NY (Crossroads Shopping Center)
for an extraordinary adoption event – the national Clear The Shelters effort.
POSH PETS RESCUE, of Greenburgh and Long Beach New York, will be participating in
the national CLEAR THE SHELTERS effort.
The Clear The Shelters effort, part of a national initiative spearheaded by the
NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations division of NBCUniversal, pairs local
television stations with animal shelters across the country to find new homes for
homeless pets. On this national day of action, participating animal shelters and
rescue organizations, including Posh Pets Rescue, will waive all adoption fees.
At PetSmart in Greenburgh, NY, Posh Pets will create a compelling visual, with
approximately forty (40) adoptable cats on site. Many of Posh Pets Rescue cats are
saved from impending euthanasia at shelters in New York City. The rest come from
The Long Beach, NY Animal Shelter, which Posh Pets took responsibility for operating
in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Through its partnership with PetSmart, Posh Pets
Rescue has been able to expand into the Westchester County community and
consistently works hard to find great homes for loving animals. Clear the Shelters
promises to be an extraordinary showing of the amount of care and concern that is
present throughout the community for pets in need.
Posh Pets Rescue is an all volunteer-run animal rescue group that works tirelessly to
save animals from high kill shelters, and other life-threatening circumstances. Posh
Pets Rescue is fortunate enough to have several volunteers who are willing to spend
every second they have outside of work and family saving animals: bringing them to
veterinary appointments, to spay/neuter appointments, getting them ready for
adoption, and trying to find them the perfect home.
Posh Pets Rescue is primarily foster-home based with foster parents caring for
animals as if they were their own until forever homes are found. Posh Pets Rescue
saves kittens, adult cats, senior cats, hospice cats, and special needs cats. Posh Pets
Rescue has cats of all ages, sizes, colors, and personalities and will work with
potential adopters to find the perfect fit for them and their families. By adopting
from Posh Pets Rescue, adopters are essentially saving multiple lives. Every cat or
kitten adopted from Posh Pets Rescue not only saves that cat, but also directly allows
Posh Pets to rescue another cat in his or her place.
While all adoption fees are waived for the Clear The Shelters effort, adopters must be
screened with Posh Pets' standard application. Potential adopters should get prescreened
