These are the shelters in the Charlotte area that are participating in Clear the Shelters

There are a variety of shelters in our area that are participating. The goal is to help them adopt out all of their animals and raise money to support their shelter.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — WCNC Charlotte is teaming up with NBC to help Clear the Shelters.

There are a variety of shelters in our area that are participating. The goal is to help them adopt out all of their animals and raise money to support their shelter.

The stations’ month-long “Adopt & Donate” effort will feature virtual pet adoptions and make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters and rescues. The campaign runs from Aug. 23 through Sept.19, 2021.

"A lot of people may not know that we have animals for adoption here right by the airport,"  Melissa Knicely with Animal Care and Control said. "I'm right near the outlet mall and we're adoption center and so sometimes people don't know that so clear the shelters helps us get our name out there and sticks with people when they're ready to adopt." 

And new this year, you can find pets to adopt online via the werescue app.
