Clear the Shelters

Last Weekend of the Clear the Shelters ‘Adopt & Donate' Campaign

The Clear the Shelters campaign runs from Aug. 23 to Sept. 19

Find your new fur-ever friend at the Clear the Shelters, NBC 5 and Telemundo 39’s animal adoption drive August 23 – September 19. This is the seventh consecutive year for the popular pet adoption campaign to take place.

Since 2015, NBC 5 and Telemundo 39‘s local Clear The Shelters campaign has helped close to 45,000 pets find new homes. Nationally, more than half a million pets have been adopted. Visit ClearTheShelters.com for more information.

This year’s Clear The Shelters will give you the opportunity to grow your family with adorable animals and the shelters will waive their adoption fees the week of September 13 – September 19; however, other fees may apply. The campaign also features online donations through fundraising partner Greater Good Charities. Those interested in donating to a participating shelter or rescue can visit the Greater Good Charities’ donation site during the campaign at ClearTheSheltersFund.org, which will also be accessible via ClearTheShelters.com.

Hill's Pet Nutrition is the national sponsor for its fourth Clear The Shelters campaign this year. Virtual pet adoptions are returning for the 2021 campaign through partner WeRescue. The WeRescue app enabled users to locate adoptable pets in their area, submit their adoption applications, and ask questions directly to shelters. iHeartDogs, a previous Clear The Shelters partner, will again donate needed pet supplies to select shelters this year. Leading social media animal brand The Dodo will again serve as a media partner.

During the summer, many of the shelters swell with surrendered pets after spring births. They are often forced to euthanize animals because they do not have the space to accommodate them all. To date, nearly 45,000 pets found their fur-ever homes in the DFW area, and over 500,000 across the country. You can help us Clear the Shelters this year. Every adoption is a life saved.
