NBC’s nationwide annual campaign will be going on throughout the month of August and it’s going virtual this year to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to keep you and your family safe.

Clear the Shelters comes at a time when the need is even greater due to the coronavirus. Many central Texas animal shelters have had to limit the amount of volunteers, some even relying on staff completely to keep up with day-to-day demands.
The adoption and foster process have also gone virtual for many local shelters.
