APS is proud to be a part of this pet adoption effort in its’ 7th year with WRAL, which helps pets find their forever home. From August 23rd to September 18th, we welcomed hundreds of adopters through our doors and helped them find their new best friend. The final day of September 18th was filled with joy as we watched so many of you go home with a new pet (or two in the case of one loving family)!

As part of Clear The Shelters, we offered a promotion where every adopter was entered into a raffle drawing to win a grand prize of a professional photography shoot of their new pet with their family, courtesy of Assorted Poppies Photography. The winner was drawn live at the end of the event Saturday. Congrats to the Christie family, who adopted beagle Jazzy after she was featured in one of our community events! In addition to the portrait session, the Christies will get a dog prize package and APS swag.
