Clear the Shelters

Finding Forever Homes Across the Country on Aug. 19, 2017

Full List of Clear the Shelters Locations in Connecticut for Aug. 19

Animal shelters across the country are teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations to find loving homes for pets in need.  The third annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative, will be held Aug. 19.  Hundreds of shelters in at least 20 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico will waive or discount fees as part of the one-day adoption drive.

The goal is to #ClearTheShelters by finding forever homes for as many pets as possible.  More than 53,000 pets were adopted during last year's event, but millions more remain homeless.  Every year, 7.6 million animals end up in shelters nationwide -- and only 2.7 million are adopted, according to the ASPCA.

Dozens of shelters across Connecticut will take part in this year's Clear the Shelters event.  See the full list of shelters below or click on the interactive map above to identify a participating shelter near you.
