Clear the Shelters 2019: Find a Chicago-Area Shelter Near You

The fifth annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative, will be held Aug. 17, 2019

NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago have teamed up with animal shelters to find loving homes for pets in need.

The fifth annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative, will be held Aug. 17, 2019. More than 1,000 shelters around the country are joining the one-day adoption drive.

Shelters in the Chicago area will waive or reduce adoption fees to help pets 6 months and older find forever homes. Each shelter's adoption process and policy will still be in place during this event.

Use the map above to search for a shelter near you or search by zip code.
