TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Dr. Karen Shenoy discussed the importance that good nutrition plays in bringing home a new shelter pet.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is proud to return for the 5th year as the national sponsor of NBCUniversal Local’s Clear the Shelters campaign. Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption and donation campaign encourages people to adopt from their local shelters to find loving, forever homes for pets across the country.

Last year over 140,000 animals were adopted from participating shelters and rescues during the campaign. In addition to sponsoring the overall campaign, Hill’s will once again be supporting select local shelters in all 50 states, with pet food samples and other adoption resources that help ensure that every pet has the best possible chance for a successful start in their new home.
