For the third year, North Texas shelters, along with NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 are planning a huge adoption event. This year’s nationwide Clear the Shelters adoption event will be held July 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exciting event brings cities, counties and nonprofit organizations together to offer a unified campaign.
Last year, North Texans helped Clear the Shelters, finding more than 2,900 pets new homes. From the beginning of the promotion of Clear the Shelters, more than 3,100 animals were adopted, bringing the grand total to more than 6,000 pets placed in new homes.
And in 2015 for the first time, groups nationwide participated in the Clear the Shelters adoption event. Nearly 20,000 pets found their forever homes in 2015, when some 400 animal shelters across the country partnered with NBC Owned Television Stations and the Telemundo Station Group.
We have more than 60 shelters participating this year and great hope we will find forever homes for many more animals.
Make an animal’s dream come true. Adopt!
