KAMR Local 4 is joining several local animal shelters, like Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare, and the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society, for the Clear the Shelters animal adoption drive. This is the fifth year for the nationwide effort by NBC and Telemundo stations. The goal is to save lives by encouraging people to adopt pets instead of buying them. During Clear the Shelters on Aug. 17, participating shelters will waive or discount adoption fees as part of the one-day drive.

Thousands of animals are adopted every year during the Clear The Shelters campaign across the nation. Sometimes those animals even end up going home with NBC and Telemundo employees. While covering the event at the Irving Animal Shelter, Telemundo 39 Anchor Norma Garcia fell in love with an adorable puppy. The dog was surrendered to the shelter just a few hours earlier and will soon be enjoying her new home with Norma.
