What is Clear the Shelters?

Clear the Shelters was created to help address the overcrowding of animals at animal shelters in the Southland and raise awareness about the benefits of adopting from a local shelter.  In 2015, the largest single day pet adoption drive in Southern California resulted in more than 2,500 animals adopted, and 20,000 adoptions throughout the country.

More than 55 shelters/rescue organizations participating. Adoptions fees are reduced to $20 for one day only. Visit any of the the following shelters below on July 23.  For a complete map, visit
