KTEN is teaming up with NBC Owned Television Stations and Telemundo today, Saturday, August 17, for Clear the Shelters, a national adoption drive that matched up more than 76,000 pets with loving new homes last year.

More than 270 pets were matched up with new owners as part of KTEN's 2018 Clear the Shelters event, and we're hoping that you, family members, friends and neighbors can help even more cats and dogs in 2019.
