Clear the Shelters

Clear the Shelters

Nearly 700 shelters across the country, including the East Bay SPCA and other local rescues, are teaming up with NBC and Telemundo for Clear the Shelters—a nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 17 with a mission to help find forever homes for animals in need by reducing or waiving adoption fees! Since Clear the Shelters was expanded nationally in 2015, the NBC and Telemundo stations and their partners have helped more than 150,000 pets find new homes.

Join the East Bay SPCA for a fun day of reduced or waived adoption fees for cats and dogs at both locations (Oakland and Dublin) and help us meet our goal to clear all of our kennels! Don’t miss this fun-filled event and chance to take home a new furry friend.

Saturday, August 17, 2019

10:00 AM – 6:00 PM

8323 Baldwin St., Oakland

4651 Gleason Dr., Dublin

Help more pets go home by donating to cover the cost of one or more pet’s adoption fees.
