Española Humane is joining shelters and rescues in August for NBCUniversal Local’s nationwide pet adoption and donation campaign, Clear the Shelters, to promote pet adoptions and raise funds for animal welfare.

The Española shelter will waive adoption fees for adult dogs and cats and reduce fees for puppies and kittens through Aug. 31.

Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has helped more than 860,000 pets find new homes. The 2022 campaign established a new single-year record with more than 161,000 adoptions, raising over $540,000. Nearly 1,400 animal shelters and rescues covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam participated in last year’s campaign.

NBCUniversal Local’s nationwide pet adoption and donation campaign, Clear The Shelters, will return for its ninth consecutive year from Aug. 1 to 31. As part of the initiative, NBC and Telemundo-owned and affiliated stations across the U.S. and Puerto Rico partner with local animal shelters and rescues to promote pet adoption and raise funds for animal welfare.

“We are proud that Clear the Shelters supports the many outstanding shelters and rescues in our communities that perform the vital work of caring for vulnerable animals, so we are very excited for the campaign’s return this August to help them find new homes for animals in need and raise more money to fund their efforts,” said Meredith McGinn, NBCUniversal Local’s Executive Vice President of Diginets & Original Production.

The 2023 Clear The Shelters will again feature online donations through Greater Good Charities, a global nonprofit and longtime campaign partner, which will host the fundraising campaign, built courtesy of Fundraise Up, an online donation platform that helps nonprofits grow revenue. Donors have the option to cover transaction fees with their donation so that 100% goes directly to the shelter or rescue of their choice. Online donations can be made during the campaign at

Locally, Telemundo Nuevo Mexico is broadcasting information about Espanola Humane’s participation.
