Pet Adoption Places in New England – NBC Boston

NBC10 Boston, Telemundo Boston, NECN and NBC Sports Boston have announced that their annual Clear The Shelters animal adoption and donation campaign will return for the eighth consecutive year from August 1-31. As part of the month-long event, NBC and Telemundo Boston stations are partnering with local animal shelters and rescues to promote pet adoption and help raise funds to support animal welfare in the community.

Since its inception in 2015, local Clear The Shelters campaigns from NBC and Telemundo Boston stations have helped more than 50,000 animals find new homes. Nationally, more than 700,000 pets have been adopted during seven Clear The Shelters campaigns

Clear The Shelters 2022 will once again offer online donations through partners Greater Good Charities and The Animal Rescue Site, who will organize fundraisers and cover transaction fees so that 100% of donations go directly to shelters and to rescues. Donations can be made to participating shelters or rescues during the campaign at ClearTheSheltersFund.org, which is also accessible through ClearTheShelters.com.

Virtual pet adoptions are also returning for the fourth consecutive campaign through Clear The Shelters partner WeRescue. The WeRescue app allows users to search for adoptable pets in their area by breed, gender, size, and other factors on their smartphone. Users can also submit adoption requests and ask questions directly to shelters through the app.
