MAXFUND TEAMS UP WITH TELEMUNDO DENVER TO HOST SECOND ANNUAL PET ADOPTION DRIVE – CLEAR THE SHELTERS – SATURDAY, JULY 23

DENVER, COLORADO – (June 30, 2016) –MAXFUND today announced that it has teamed up with TELEMUNDO DENVER to host NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters second annual nationwide pet adoption drive. MAXFUND will offer the public reduced fee adoptions and neutering fees on Saturday, July 23, as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.

Maxfund is very excited to be participating in Telemundo Denver’s 2016 Clear the Shelters.  The MaxFund is a non-profit organization established to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners and to find new homes for these animals once they have recovered.  We look forward to cooperating with Telemundo Denver in finding our animals’ forever homes.
 
This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets finding new homes through an unprecedented partnership between the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country and in Puerto Rico. The nationwide day of action literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.

WHAT:     MAXFUND to participate as an official Clear the Shelters partner alongside TELEMUNDO DENVER. MAXFUND to offer reduced fee adoptions, spaying and neutering fees 
WHEN:     Saturday, July 23 from X AM to X PM
WHERE:     720 West 10th Avenue, Denver, CO 80204
INFO:     Viewers can visit Telemundodenver.com to access more information about Clear the Shelters, including the full list of local participating animal shelters

ADOPTION:     A real-time pet “Adoption Tracker” – posted on ClearTheShelters.com – will record the  total number of pets that are adopted across all participating markets
