Find a Shelter


Hundreds of shelters across the country are teaming up with NBC Owned Television Stations and Telemundo for Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 19 that helps find loving homes for animals in need. Almost 54,000 pets found their forever homes in 2016.

Shelters: Get Involved

Last year, NBC 10 and Telemundo 62 partnered with more than 25 local animal shelters for Clear the Shelters — and nearly 1,100 animals were adopted in the Philadelphia area. Our goal this year is to do even better. If your shelter is interested in participating, download our Shelter Partners form, then email it to Melissa Signs.
