    Save the Date! On Aug. 19, 2017, NBC and Telemundo stations all across the country will team up with hundred of shelters across the country to match shelter pets with their forever homes. (Published Monday, July 31, 2017)

    NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago teamed up with animal shelters across the Chicago area to find loving homes for pets in need. It's all part of the Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 19.

    Dozens of shelters in Chicago and the suburbs will waive or discount fees as part of the one-day adoption drive. The waived fees apply to animals ages 6 months and older (not kittens or puppies), and all individual shelters' adoption policies apply.
