Clear the Shelters is a national movement that encourages perspective adopters to adopt pets from local animal shelters. By adopting pets, instead of purchasing them from pet stores, dogs and cats are given a second chance at finding a forever home. They are less at risk of euthanization, as well.
Approximately 6.5 million animals are taken into animal shelters each year; with that being said, 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats).
Clear the Shelters is a national event that is held on August 18, 2018, offering free or discounted pet adoption to pet seekers. When pets are adopted from local animal shelters, everyone wins.
Adopt from a humane society; and be a part of the movement.
