Thousands of pets are looking for their forever homes and News Channel 10 is helping to make that happen in the Monroe & El Dorado area.

We are teaming up with hundreds of shelters across the country to host Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 17, 2019, to help find loving homes for animals in need.

More than 250,000 pets found their forever homes since 2015.

Now is the time for shelters to register by completing the online application located here. Organizations interested in participating in Clear the Shelters must complete the Commitment Registration form to ensure proper verification of all interested participants.

When registering, please make sure you select the Monroe, LA-El Dorado, AR region. This will put your shelter on our CLEAR THE SHELTERS online map, driving families to your shelter.
