18 Cats & Four Dogs Were Adopted at Recent GCAS ‘Clear the Shelters’ Event


Gigi is still available for adoption! She is a very sweet kitten living in foster care with her five siblings. She is a typical kitten that loves to run around and play with her siblings. She is very affectionate and is patiently waiting for her forever home. Gigi and her sister Wendy are very close and GCAS would like to adopt them out together. If you would like to meet Gigi or one any of the cats available for adoption, call (856) 881-2828 x 1.

On August 17, 2019, 18 cats and four dogs found new forever homes when the Gloucester County Animal Shelter (GCAS) participated in the fourth annual Clear the Shelters event and waived adoption fees on all animals in the shelter.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “Eighteen cats and four dogs found new homes and there are twenty-two fewer animals at the shelter, that is a successful day. Clear the Shelters really helps promote adoption.”

Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco said that the Gloucester County Animal Shelter averages adopting out 15 cats per month.

“Clear the Shelters helped us adopt out more cats in one day then we usually can in one month. It’s very satisfying to see the shelter animals and their new families together,” said DiMarco, who is the Liaison to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter.

The shelter is located at 1200 N. Delsea Drive in Clayton.

The nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative was started by NBC and Telemundo as a way to offer low cost or completely waived fees in order to help local families find the perfect pet for them at an affordable cost, or no cost at all. In its four years running, this initiative has successfully found forever homes for around 150,000 shelter animals.
