KAMR Local 4 joins local animal shelters for the Clear the Shelters animal adoption drive. This is the sixth year for the nationwide effort by NBC and Telemundo stations. The goal is to save lives by encouraging people to adopt pets instead of buying them. This year’s Clear the Shelters drive will last from August 8th to the 23rd to assist with efforts to maintain safe adoptions for those desiring to add a new member to their family. Participating shelters are offering waived or discount adoption fees as part of the month-long drive.

Clear The Shelters: Gracie’s Project gives Chance a chance

Clear the Shelters

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT)— Gracie’s project is a local organization that we’re highlighting during our clear the shelter’s initiative.

Today, we are introducing you to one of their adoptable pets, appropriately named, “chance.”

Gracie’s Project rescue specialist, Joy Ramos tells us Chance was found in a field lying there with an embedded color in his neck.

“We rushed him the vet because he was in shock, and when we got there, we found out that he was in kidney failure,” said Ramos. “He had gotten into some poison of some kind and his glucose levels were very low, so they took them into surgery and fixed his embedded color. His hair is just now starting to grow back on his neck.”

Ramos tells us Chance is dog and kid-friendly, and is looking for his forever home.

Stay tuned during the next couple of weeks as we introduce you to organizations in our area that work to find pets their forever homes, and then tune in to our clear the shelters special that’s airing august 28th.
