You Can Help Clear the Shelters!

The annual Clear the Shelters adoption drive, held in partnership with NBC and Telemundo, is Aug. 1-31.

As individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing, this year’s Clear the Shelters event is a monthlong “Adopt & Donate” effort instead of the usual one-day event. It features virtual pet adoptions through many San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition partners and makes it easy for friends like you to give online to participating animal shelters.

We use the phrase “clear the shelters” endearingly to express our desire for every shelter pet to have a new home and loving family of their own. Here are three ways you can participate in Clear the Shelters to help make this wish a reality:
