In 2015, NBC and Telemundo teamed up with shelters across the nation for their #ClearTheShelters movement to waive all adoption fees today! This effort is aimed at helping homeless animals find their fur-ever home. I've personally seen adoption fees close to $200, so this is quite an opportunity!
Since then, 168,000+ pets have found comfort in loving homes. The adoption tracker on the website shows that for 2018, close to 15,000 animals have been adopted. If you're interested in adopting for the first time or are looking to add onto your fur-family, the Clear The Shelters website has a great tool to find shelters that are participating in the event.
In the Bay Area, more than 50 shelters are participating in the #ClearTheShelters event this Saturday. Below is a list of shelters involved in today's huge adoption event! What are you waiting for? Your fur-ever friend is out there looking to connect with you. 🐶😍
