'Just One Day' event aims to save shelter animals

ALBANY, N.Y. – Shelters across the country participated in Just One Day, an event in which organizations put euthanasia on hold in order to photograph and market animals to the public.

Starting Tuesday, the shelters will reach out to rescue groups, host adoption events, stay open for extended hours, and ask their communities to help them empty the shelter the good way.

Last year, about 800 organizations answered the call, finding homes for roughly 9,000 animals, erasing one day's worth of killing.
