THIS IS WHAT CLEAR THE SHELTERS IS ALL ABOUT!
Clear The Shelters, NBCUniversal Local’s annual nationwide pet adoption and donation campaign, will return for the eighth consecutive year Aug. 1 to 31. As part of the monthlong initiative, NBC and Telemundo owned and affiliated stations across the U.S. and Puerto Rico are partnering with animal shelters like Abandoned Pet Rescue to promote pet adoption and raise funds to support animal welfare.
Since its 2015 inception, Clear The Shelters has helped more than 700,000 pets find new homes. Last year’s campaign resulted in more than 140,000 adoptions and raised more than $500,000.
“We are pleased to present our eighth annual Clear The Shelters campaign to help shelters and rescues across the nation with their critical work of finding loving homes for the animals under their care, and inviting communities to donate funds to support their work,” said Valari Staab, Chairman of NBCUniversal Local. “Clear The Shelters is a community-driven effort that counts on the support of so many, including our employees, shelter partners, our affiliate stations and our national sponsors, and thanks to them the campaign has become an important event.”
The 2022 Clear The Shelters will again feature online donations through partners Greater Good Charities, a global nonprofit,andThe Animal Rescue Site, which will host the fundraising and cover all transaction fees so that 100 percent of donations go directly to shelters and rescues in need. Online donations can be made to participating shelters or rescues during the campaign at ClearTheSheltersFund.org, which is also accessible via ClearTheShelters.com.
APR will be open 7 days a week from 12 Noon to 5PM so you can consider the adoption of your fur-ever dog or cat (or both). Our visits are by appointment only.
