    During the fourth annual Clear the Shelters event, 7,238 North Texas pets found new, loving homes. The shelters in Bedford, Cleburne, Murphy, Royse City and Wylie closed on Saturday. The number of pets adopted nationally can be seen below.

    In addition to Dallas-Fort Worth, more than 1,100 shelters in 20 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico waived or discounted fees as part of the one-day adoption drive. 

    The goal is to #ClearTheShelters by finding forever homes for as many animals as possible.

    NBC 5 Sports Director Newy Scruggs stopped by the Irving Animal Shelter today to help support our Clear The Shelters event and shared how he and his family adopted their rescue dog Rosie.

    (Published Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018)

    Last year, the NBC and Telemundo stations’ Clear the Shelters™ campaign resulted in pets of all types finding new homes. In Dallas-Fort Worth, more than 7,600 pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, and more were adopted. Since 2015, nationally, NBC and Telemundo stations’ Clear the Shelters™ effort has resulted in more than 153,000 pet adoptions.

    Dozens of local shelters will take part this year in Clear the Shelters. Refer to the interactive map above or the list below to find a participating shelter near you.
