Empty the Shelter Day set for Saturday

Organizations work to "Empty the Shelters"

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Are you looking for a new furry family member?

Empty the Shelters Day is this Saturday, November 7.

It’s a day where shelters from all around the state set off to raise awareness of pets in need of a home. If you can’t adopt a pet, there’s still a lot you can do.

“There’s a lot that people don’t realize they can do to help a shelter,” Youngstown-area animal activist Jason Cooke said. “A lot of people think it’s just adopting or fostering, but they need volunteers, they need donations.”

Here is a list of shelters participating in the day:
