Looking to expand your family with a rescue pet? Help KPRC 2 Clear the Shelters this August

Clear the Shelters (KPRC)

HOUSTON – KPRC 2 is proud to once again join NBC and Telemundo’s Clear the Shelters initiative and team up with Telemundo Houston and animal shelters in the Houston area to host the sixth annual Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption drive for the entire month of August.

Participating animal shelters in the Houston area may offer reduced fee adoptions or waived pet spaying and neutering fees. Please check with each individual shelter or rescue group to see if they are offering Clear the Shelters adoption incentives.

The need for shelter pets to find homes is critical as shelters and rescue groups face unprecedented circumstances and shelter overcrowding in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you are considering adding to your family by adopting a rescue pet, please be prepared for a lifelong commitment to the pet. Pets require veterinary care, food, water and shelter, preferably indoors away from the Texas heat and elements. Rescue pets have so much love to give and we want to see them go to loving forever homes.

Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has resulted in more than 411,300 pet adoptions nationwide.

Participating shelters include (shelter hours may vary, please contact shelter for hours of operation):
