Clear Shelters 2022 in Chicago – NBC Chicago

Are you looking for an opportunity to meet four-legged friends? Adopt a pet before this year’s NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago Clear the Shelters event ends on August 31.

The month-long program is the perfect opportunity to expand your family, as many shelters are experiencing a summer surge of new pets for a variety of reasons. The influx of numbers can lead to euthanasia due to lack of space in shelters, so help us save animal lives this summer.

Many shelters participating in the campaign offer cost-effective ways to adopt by waiving some of their fees. Stick around to see where to start your search for a new pet.

What is Clear Vaults?

Clear the Shelters is an annual campaign to save animals in shelters across the country. Participating shelters are all waiving adoption fees on Saturday, August 27, and some are waiving fees throughout the month, however, other fees may apply.

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

To adopt, you must be at least 18 years old. Be sure to 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 current utility bill or current rental agreement with your correct address.
