Clear the Shelters 2022: What you need to know about the Chicago-area pet adoption event – NBC Chicago | Hot Mobile Press

Your new furry family member is waiting for you! Adopt a pet at this year’s NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago Clear the Shelters all month long, August 1-31. This is the perfect opportunity to expand your family.

Many shelters experience a summer rush of new pets for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, due to the lack of space in the shelters, this can lead to euthanasia. Help us save pet lives this summer.

What is Clear the Shelters?

Clear the Shelters is an annual campaign to save shelter animals across the country. All participating properties are waiving adoption fees on Saturday, August 27, and some are waiving fees throughout the month, but other fees may apply.

How do I adopt a pet in the Chicago area during Clear the Shelters?

You must be at least 18 years old to adopt. Make sure you bring your current/valid driver’s license or ID card. If you do not have your current address on your driver’s license or ID card, you will need to bring proof of residence such as a recent utility bill or rental agreement with your correct address.
