    Save the Date! Clear the Shelters Coming to You Aug. 19

    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)

    If you're looking to take home a new furry best friend, there's no better time than this weekend. 

    That's because NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago have teamed up with animal shelters across the Chicago area to find deserving animals their new forever homes. 

    From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, dozens of shelters in Chicago and the suburbs will waive or discount fees as part of the one-day adoption drive Clear the Shelters. The waived fees apply to animals ages six months and older and all individual shelters' adoption policies apply.

    Last year, more than 53,000 pets were adopted during the nationwide campaign.
