    Animal shelters across the country are teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations to find loving homes for pets in need.

    The fifth annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative, will be held Aug. 17, 2019. More than 1,000 shelters are joining the one-day adoption drive.

    The goal is to #ClearTheShelters by finding forever homes for as many animals as possible.

    Across the country, over 100,000 pets were adopted during last year’s event, but millions more remain homeless. Every year, 6.5 million animals end up in shelters nationwide — and only 3.2 million are adopted, according to the ASPCA.

    Many local shelters will take part this year in Clear the Shelters. Refer to the interactive map above to identify a participating shelter near you.
