When a television broadcast group gets behind a community project, the results can be unbelievable.
For example, since its 2015 inception, NBCUniversal’s Clear The Shelters campaign has helped more than 860,000 pets find new homes.
Not only did 860,000 pets get new homes, that’s 860,000 pets that are no longer in shelters, and that’s 860,000 homes where people’s lives are enriched by the addition of a pet.
The 2023 Clear The Shelters campaign began on Aug. 1 and continues through the month.
