Animal shelters across the country will come together in August for Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption initiative that aims to connect animals in need with loving new families. More than 75,000 pets were adopted from 700 shelters during the 2017 initiative.

We invite you to visit the Central Oregon shelters below and find your furrever friend. On August 18th these shelters will be offering free or discounted adoption fees on all dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and other pets. Be sure to mention the NewsChannel 21 Clear the Shelters campaign.

Discounted adoptions and promotions are only valid on August 18th. Contact participating shelter for details on their Clear the Shelters promotional offer. For more information on the national NBC Clear the Shelters initiative please visit
