'Clear the Shelters' in North Texas by Giving a Pet a Loving Home

NBC 5 & Telemundo 39 hold 'Clear the Shelters' pet adoption day on Aug. 15, find participating shelters in the map below

Thousands of animals in our area are in need of homes. That's why NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 are partnering with more than 50 shelters throughout the region to help find these animals permanent loving homes. Animals range from puppies and kittens to snuggly adult dogs and cats.

On Saturday, Aug. 15, NBC-owned stations are taking part in "Clear the Shelters" Day, an initiative to help find new homes for cats and dogs waiting to be adopted.

Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. participating shelters have agreed to waive all adoption fees* (spay/neuter fee) that day in hopes of attracting even more people interested in giving a furry friend a forever home. However, other shelter fees may still apply.

The ultimate goal of the event is to help as many animals as possible find their perfect match. Last year, North Texans helped us find forever homes for more than 2,200 animals.

Surprisingly, only about 20 percent of people adopting a pet choose a shelter animal. No shelter wants to see any animals caged.

Finding these pets quality homes is even more critical during the summer after the populations at shelters swell due to abandoned and surrendered pets following spring births.

If you adopt a pet on Saturday, share your photo include @NBCDFW and the hashtag #ClearTheShelters or email your photo to isee@nbcdfw.com. Include your name, your pet's name and the name of the shelter!
