The third annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide pet adoption initiative, will be held on August 19, 2017. More than 400 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. More than 53,000 pets were adopted during last year’s event, but millions more remain homeless. In 2015, the largest single day pet adoption drive in Southern California resulted in more than 8,200 animals adopted in Los Angeles, Ventura, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
