HOUSTON - KPRC 2 once again joined NBCUniversal's Clear the Shelters initiative and teamed up with Telemundo Houston and animal shelters in the Houston area to host the third annual Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, Aug. 18.
Clear the Shelters also helps to raise awareness about the importance of pet adoption and the overcrowding issues that local animal shelters typically experience in the summer months because of spring litters.

Last year, more than 80,000 pets were adopted as a result of the Clear the Shelters nationwide campaign. Nearly 3,000 of those pet adoptions took place in the Houston area. Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has resulted in more than 150,000 pet adoptions nationwide.
Participating animal shelters in the Houston area offer no-cost or reduced fee adoptions or waived pet spaying and neutering fees.
Rescue groups will host adoptions at the Children’s Museum of Houston as indicated in the listings below. Crime Stoppers of Houston, SNAP and Houston PetSet will be sharing information about animal care and animal cruelty prevention at the Children’s Museum of Houston event as well. Event hours at the Children’s Museum of Houston on August 18 are 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
