Clear the Shelters will take place on Saturday, July 23, 2016 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at local participating animal shelters. This is an incredible event that, with your participation, will result in a tremendous number of animals and people finding their perfect match. The idea began in Irving, TX in 2014 and quickly spread throughout most cities comprising the Dallas Fort/Worth metroplex. Thanks to the dedication of 55 North Texas Shelter managers, a tight communications team and NBC 5 and Telemundo 39’s support, last year’s event delivered our dream – 2,951 animals were adopted in one day and 6,088 were adopted over the three week campaign period. The event also was held in the 28 NBC and Telemundo owned stations across the country, where we were able to adopt nearly 20,000 animals.
