NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -- News4 WSMV is proud to once again join NBCUnversal and Telemundo to find loving homes for pets in need.
The 5th annual Clear The Shelters happens this Saturday, August 17 at shelters all over Middle Tennessee, and around the nation.
Last year, over 100,000 pets were adopted around the country on Clear The Shelters 2018 from more than 1200 participating shelters.
Since the launch in 2015, over a quarter-million shelter pets have found their fur-ever homes around the country.
Shelters typically experience overcrowding in the summer months because of spring litters, and Clear The Shelters was created to do just that - help families adopt an animal in need through low-cost or no-fee adoptions, or in some cases waiving pet spaying and neutering fees.
