Los Angeles, July 31, 2020 — LA Animal Services has joined NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters™ 2020 pet adoption campaign! To help individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing measures, this year’s campaign will be a month-long virtual pet campaign, from August 1 through August 31, 2020, and will also include an option for animal lovers to donate and show their support for participating shelters and rescues.
This is the sixth consecutive year that NBC and Telemundo owned stations present their popular pet adoption campaign to communities nationwide in partnership with affiliate stations and shelters/rescues. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters campaign has helped more than 410,000 pets find new homes. Visit ClearTheShelters.com for more information.
For individuals who are unable to adopt a pet, but would like to show their support of Clear The Shelters™, may visit GreaterGood.org’s Clear The Shelters donation site at ClearTheSheltersFund.org and make a donation to one of our LA Animal Services Centers. Donations of up to $10,000 will be matched by GreaterGood.org for the first week of the campaign. You may donate directly to East Valley, West Valley, West LA, Chesterfield Square, North Central, or Harbor Animal Services Center to have your donation matched.

Clear The Shelters™ / Desocupar Los Albergues® is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign that is spearheaded by NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations, a division of NBCUniversal. Every year, NBCUniversal’s TV stations (NBC and Telemundo owned stations), plus affiliated stations partner with local animal shelters and rescues in their communities to host Clear The Shelters events. NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters campaign was inspired by a 2014 North Texas pet adoption event hosted by NBC 5 / KXAS and Telemundo 39 / KXTX and dozens of area shelters that resulted in the most adopted pets in one day for North Texas. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters pet adoption campaign has resulted in more than 410,000 pets finding new homes.
