NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago are back with the 2020 Clear The Shelters Pet Adoption and Donation Campaign for the month of August.
There are two ways to participate!
DONATE: Between Aug. 1 and Aug. 31, donate to participating shelters raising money to offset the difficult year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Critical funds for shelters and rescues can be donated at ClearTheSheltersFund.org.
ADOPT: Between Aug. 1 and Aug. 31, participating shelters will reduce or waive adoption fees to help animals 6 months and older find their forever homes. Go to the shelter websites below to learn activities and ongoing promotions. Please note: There will be no onsite adoptions. Visit the shelter’s website to learn the necessary paperwork needed to complete the virtual adoption process. Each shelter's own adoption process and policy will still be in place during this event.
Participating shelters can also be found on the WeRescue iOS app. On the app just enter your zip code, submit your pet adoption application through shelter’s websites, and ask questions directly to the shelter.
