- As our Holiday Gift to Silicon Valley, the six Shelters First partners are presenting our December Adoption Special: $12 ADOPTION FEES. All adult animals are only $12. Visit SheltersFirst.org to see the six Silicon Valley animal shelters participating.
- Shelters First is an awareness campaign that targets the 67% of Santa Clara county households that love pets – encouraging everyone to find their next pet at a shelter. (That’s over 400,000 families!) Currently, only 25% of pet owners adopt from shelters.
- 1,200+ pets need a “Home for the Holidays”
- “Our shelters are beautiful, but they’re not homes,” said Beth Ward, VP of Shelter Operations at Humane Society Silicon Valley. “Our volunteers and staff are warm and wonderful, but they’re not the same as a permanent, loving family. We hope families will consider opening their homes and hearts this holiday season.”
First partners are working together in constant communication to create
short-term solutions including:
- transferring animals between shelters
- moving animals into foster care homes
- healing and training animals to become more adoptable
But these are just band-aids. The real solution is clear. Hundreds of homeless animals in Silicon Valley need to be adopted NOW.
