Clear the Shelters 2018


Finding ‘furever’ homes for rescue pets

This Saturday Aug. 18, 2018, animal shelters across the country are teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations for the fourth annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative.

Participating shelters will waive or discount fees during the one-day adoption drive.

More than 80,000 pets were adopted during last year’s event, and the goal is to #ClearTheShelters.
