Clear the Shelters, the popular nationwide pet adoption drive that took the country by storm last year returns on Saturday, August 19 and for the first time ever, is coming to the Kansas Humane Society!

This year, KHS is joining with our local NBC station, KSN, to provide local families the opportunity to adopt an animal in need by offering waived adoption fees. We are thrilled to partner with KHS to make this year’s Clear the Shelters event another remarkable day across the country and here in our community.

KSN HFY Clear the Shelters LogoDuring our normal business hours on Saturday, August 19, 2017, KHS will be offering fee-waived adoptions! That means you pay $0 to adopt an animal from KHS that day. Yes - completely free adoptions! This amazing event is only possible thanks to our sponsors: Subaru, Petco, Fahnestock, and York. No holds on animals will be allowed on Friday, August 18 or on the day of the event. No dog-to-dog introductions on event day, please. 

Clear the Shelters has been a hugely successful event at other animal shelters across the country and we are so excited to be a part of this year and hopefully clear out our shelter and get dozens of animals adopted into new, loving homes,” said Mark Eby, President/CEO of the Kansas Humane Society. “We are so thankful to KSN and our sponsors for helping us make this event happen. Because of them, we are helping local families connect with and take home a new, furry family member.”

We’re hoping to have a successful Clear the Shelters day this year, so here’s how you can help us raise more awareness about Clear the Shelters 2017.

  • Upload an image of yourself with your pet or pets using the hashtags #ClearTheShelters and #LoveMyPet and listing the reasons why you love your pets.
  • Access a #ClearTheShelters / #DesocuparLosAlbergues filters on NBC and Telemundo stations’ websites that lets you easily share your pet photos across social platforms.

You don’t need to have an adopted animal to participate.  You can simply smile, snap a photo with your favorite furry or non-furry friend, list your reasons for loving your pet, and upload your post and photo to your social media channels. 

NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters initiative is a community-driven nationwide pet adoption campaign that seeks to match deserving animals with loving and permanent homes. This year, NBC and Telemundo stations all across the country will join with hundreds of animal shelters, including the Kansas Humane Society, to offer low cost or waived pet adoption fees to help families find and adopt a new pet. Since 2015, the stations’ Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign has resulted in more than 70,000 pet adoptions nationwide.

Please visit KHS on Saturday, August 19 and help us ‘Clear the Shelters”!

You’ll help to give a homeless animal a new chance at life and you may also find your new best friend.
