In celebration of “National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day,” a day that aims to bring awareness to pets that are waiting for adoption at shelters/rescues, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations (NBC and Telemundo owned stations), a division of NBCUniversal, announced its pet adoption campaign – “Clear The Shelters” – returns to communities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico on Saturday, Aug. 17. NBC and Telemundo owned stations’ fifth annual “Clear The Shelters” campaign will once again include the participation of hundreds of animal shelters and rescues, as well as NBC/Telemundo affiliates.

On Saturday, Aug. 17, shelters/rescues will reduce or waive pet adoption fees to help families adopt a new pet. Since 2015, NBC and Telemundo owned stations’ “Clear The Shelters” campaign has helped more than a quarter million pets find new homes.

Audiences everywhere can keep up with NBC/Telemundo stations as they prepare to present their popular pet adoption campaign this August by following @ClearTheShelter on Twitter and #ClearTheShelters and #DesocuparLosAlbergues across all social platforms.
