Erie News Now and NBC stations across the country are teaming up to Clear the Shelters on Saturday, Aug. 17.

The nationwide pet adoption drive hopes to find forever homes for pets waiting in animal shelters.

More than 250,000 pets have found new homes since 2015.

There is a vetting process for the animals.

Each shelter is also accepting donations.

We hope you can join us to help find shelter pets their forever homes.
