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 August 19, 2017. Hundreds of shelters in 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 animals as possible. 

Across the country, over 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 local shelters will take part this year in Clear the Shelters.

Join us for Clear the Shelters on Saturday, August 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We've partnered with animal shelters and rescue centers across San Diego County to waive adoption fees for one day only. Find your local shelter here.

Refer to the interactive map above to identify a participating shelter near you.

All too often, kids don’t have the school supplies — pens, paper, notebooks and more — that they need to succeed in school. Teachers struggle to fill the gap without the resources they need. 

So, join us as we begin Supporting Our Schools. 

For the first time, NBC San Diego and Telemundo 20 along with other NBC- and Telemundo-owned television stations are partnering with several nonprofits, including Communities in Schools, DonorsChoose.org, United Way and Boys & Girls Club, to raise donations of supplies and cash. 

"Education is the key that unlocks the doors to endless opportunities and I’m proud that our local teams are stepping up to the plate to help their neighbors and strengthen their communities,” said Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.

We’ll be telling stories through the end of July from San Diego County and beyond to raise awareness about what can be done to help students and teachers thrive. 

Stop by your nearest club to donate or join us for the NBC 7 School Supply Drive on Friday, July 28 from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. at 4635 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.

Donate to Support Our Schools here.
