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.
