Special day for pet adoptions approaching

HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) With a room full of animals available for adoption, Heartland Pet Connection in Hastings will be taking part in a nation wide promotion this month.

"Clear the Shelters" is going to be held August 18, and will include special promotions for those looking to adopt.

"Adoption specials will be going on," said Jennie Theesen from Heartland. "We will also have specials in our gift shop".

Theesen says they will also hold a raffle at the end of the day and one of the people that adopted that day will have their fee refunded.

Theesen brought Leo, a 12-week old kitten, to Local4 News at 11:30 as as example of many kittens - and dogs - available for adoption.
