Looking for a furry new addition to your family?

NBC and Telemundo owned stations are teaming up with hundreds of shelters across the country to host Clear the Shelters, a pet adoption drive held nationwide on Saturday, August 18th to help find loving homes for animals in need.

All seven of the Los Angeles County Animal Care Centers will be participating in Clear the Shelters, and we are so excited that we decided we should celebrate all week!

Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has helped 153,651 pets find forever homes. In honor of this very special day, from August 12th-19th adoption fees for dogs are only $20, and cats are free! Every single pet that is adopted frees shelter staff up to work with and prepare the next pet for potential adoption. That means in addition to finding your new best friend, you can save two lives.

Every animal deserves a forever home, so join us from August 12th-19th to Clear the Shelters!
