If animals could talk, they’d all be saying “Pick me” at pet shelters all over the country as thousands of people are expected to adopt a pet this Saturday.

It’s time for Clear the Shelters, the nationwide pet adoption campaign spearheaded by NBC and Telemundo owned stations.
Clear the Shelters will take place on Saturday, August 19. On this day, shelters all across the country will offer low cost or waived pet adoption fees to help families find and adopt a new pet.
The stations’ Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign seeks to match homeless pets with loving and permanent homes.
Hundreds of animal shelters in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico are teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations to host Clear the Shelters.
While the vast majority of the adopted animals were cats and dogs, other pets like rabbits, hamsters, hedgehogs, turtles, ferrets, monkeys, donkeys, lizards, cows and pigs also found new homes.
A real-time pet Adoption Tracker, posted on ClearTheShelters.com, will record the total number of pets that are adopted across all participating markets.
Since Clear the Shelters was expanded nationally in 2015, the NBC and Telemundo stations and their partners have resulted in the adoption of more than 70,000 homeless pets.
If the NBC and Telemundo stations can make such a measurable, positive difference by joining together, think of what good could be accomplished should other broadcast groups follow their lead.
