“Clear the Shelters” Pet Adoption and Donation Campaign Returns

NBC10, Telemundo62, and NBC Sports Philadelphia are sponsoring their annual Clear the Shelters pet adoption and donation campaign for the ninth consecutive year, now through August 31. As part of the event, these news stations have partnered with local animal shelters and rescues to promote pet adoption and to help raise funds for Philadelphia’s greater animal welfare community.

Since its inception in 2015, the Clear the Shelters campaign has helped more than 36,959 pets find new homes in the greater Philadelphia region. Nationally, more than 860,000 pets have been adopted.

For those who may not be looking for a new pet, but would still like to participate, online donations can be made through greatergood.org, a global nonprofit and longtime campaign partner with Clear the Shelters. Online donations can also be made through August 31 at clearthesheltersfund.org.
