Clear the Shelters

Congratulations copy

Clear the Shelters was an amazing day at Adopt-A-Dog! NBC 4 NY and News 12 stopped by to help show off our adoptable dogs.
Adoptions update from our Clear the Shelters event: 3 kittens, Gretel, Reptar, Cafe, Hansel, Rumplestiltskin and JaJa found their forever homes! Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers and supporters for making it another great event.

It’s August, which means it is Clear the Shelters month! Adopt-A-Dog is excited to be participating in NBC and Telemundo’s Clear the Shelters nationwide event for the third time on August 19th. This year we hope to bring the community together and find homes for as many dogs possible.

Clear the Shelters is an amazing event that NBC 4 New York / WNBC and Telemundo 47 / WNJU partnered up together for to find homeless pets a forever home. Adopt-A-Dog’s mission is to save, socialize and secure loving homes for unwanted or abandoned dogs. Clear the Shelters helps us accomplish that mission. 

So join us on Saturday, August 19th and help us find these amazing dogs their forever homes!


Sponsor a Pet

Looking for a way to help but cannot bring a new pet into your home at this time? Consider sponsoring the care of a dog at our shelter! Starting as low as $10 a month, sponsorships allow Adopt-A-Dog to continue to provide a high level of care to our homeless pets awaiting their forever homes.


Sponsor Options


Open your home and foster a pet for adoption. We are always in need of foster homes to provide out of shelter care for both dogs and cats of any age – from newborn to seniors. Fostering also allows us to rescue more pets in need, opening up space at the shelter.
