The time is here for one of our favorite animal adoption events! On Saturday, August 18, 2018 animal shelters across the country will offer free pet adoptions for qualified adopters thanks to the support of NBC and Telemundo owned stations. Our own San Francisco SPCA will be participating again, so be sure to visit their adoption pages now and mark your calendar.
If you’ve been wanting to add a furry family member this is your chance to help clear your local animal shelter and have your adoption fees waived, all thanks to the financial support of NBC and Telemundo!
"Every single pet that is adopted frees shelter staff up to work with and prepare the next pet for potential adoption," said Kenny Lamberti, director of strategic engagement and companion animals for the Humane Society.
Last year, more than 80,000 pets were adopted from over 900 shelters across the country. Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has helped 153,651 pets find forever homes.
