Animal shelters and rescue organizations across the country are teaming up with NBC and Telemundo to host Clear the Shelters, a pet adoption event happening on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. All day, participating shelters will offer low-cost or waived adoption fees to help deserving animals find forever homes. Since 2015, 70,000 pets have been saved thanks to campaign efforts.
