Contributed by City of Columbia

Columbia Animal Services would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the community for the community’s support of the Clear the Shelter Adoption event Saturday, August 19, 2017.

“We knew it would be a busy day, but we were still amazed and thrilled with the turnout,” said Marli Drum, superintendent.

When the front doors opened that morning, dozens were waiting in line to adopt a new pet. By closing at 4 p.m., 104 ( 53 cats/ kitten and 51 dogs/puppies) pets had found new homes. It was a very happy and successful day.

“We truly are grateful to our community that wants to be a part of the solution and provide homes for these awesome pets,” says Drum.
