Clear The Shelters Adoption Celebration

We are thrilled to announce that 119 animals were adopted during our 2023 Clear the Shelters event on Saturday, August 27! 57 cats, 38 dogs, 12 guinea pigs, 8 rabbits, and 4 pigs all found their forever homes. That was the most adoptions that we’ve ever had during Clear the Shelters at SPCA Tampa Bay! Congratulations to all of the animals who were adopted and their new families.

Check out more stories from our Clear the Shelters Adoption event on our Animal Tails Podcast Episode 14 debuting on YouTube Wednesday, September 13 at 7 p.m.

In 2022, 77 animals found their forever homes during Clear the Shelters! In 2021, 35 animals found their new homes! In 2020, 60 animals went home with only one pig left and he was adopted the next morning! 

Animal shelters, like SPCA Tampa Bay, across the country celebrated pet companionship and held Clear the Shelters adoption events during the month of August.

Since its 2015 inception, NBCUniversal’s Clear The Shelters has helped more than 860,000 pets find new homes.  Hill’s Pet Nutrition returned as a national sponsor for its fifth Clear The Shelters this year. 

Thank you to all our adopters, local sponsors, and NBC Universal’s Clear The Shelters nationwide initiative!
