Help To Clear Charlotte’s Pet Shelters During The Month Of August

Charlotte Clear The Shelters Month 2023


Clear The Shelters™ Month in Charlotte runs through the month of August. You can help to clear Charlotte’s pet shelters and save a life this month and, for that matter, any month.


August 2023 is Clear The Shelters™ Month sponsored by NBC Universal Local, in cities around the country. Clear the Shelters™ is a nationwide pet adoption initiative whose purpose is to find fur-ever homes for homeless pets. Since 2015, the Clear The Shelters™ adoption campaign has helped more than 860,000 pets find new loving homes.


Animal shelters typically become overcrowded in the summer months because of spring litters. This month, help find fur-ever homes for Charlotte’s homeless pet population. Many shelters have agreed to waive or reduce adoption fees on Clear The Shelters Month. All pets available for adoption have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. 


The Humane Society of Charlotte has joined this effort to help as many animals as possible find their fur-ever homes during August and September. Here in Charlotte, HSC works daily to serve the citizens and pets of Charlotte and beyond and is on target to help 3,000 animals find new, loving homes this year. During Clear The Shelters™ month, Humane Society of Charlotte is offering:


$50 off adoption fees for select adult dogs

BOGO $50 off adoption fees for kittens

Fee-waived adoptions for adult cats


Greater Charlotte SPCA is also participating in the 2023 Clear The Shelters™ initiative this month.

Save A Life By Adopting A Shelter Pet
Did you know that homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5 to 1? Roughly, 70 million cats are homeless in the United States. Only 10% of dogs born will find a permanent home. Around 3.9 million dogs are abandoned or given up to shelters each year. In 2022, the Clear The Shelters™ initiative set a new record with 161,000+ pet adoptions.  Why not help increase the number in 2023? Please adopt and don’t shop!
