Clear the Shelter 2022

Jul 29, 2022

Clear the Shelter 2022 is finally here! Come in to find your new fur baby and leave knowing that you have helped us clear out a kennel; every adoption counts! This year’s adoption special features $90 dog adoptions and $5 cat adoptions from August 1st to August 31st. Spay and neuter deposit and some exclusions may apply.

Cedar Bend Humane Society is Black Hawk County's only full-service open-admission animal shelter and is quickly approaching max capacity. Adoptable pets at CBHS have no time limit on how long it takes for them to find a home making it an important time for the community to consider adopting a pet in need. Adoption center hours are 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Tuesday through Sunday, closed daily 12:00 P.M. to 1:00 P.M.

About Clear The Shelters

Clear The Shelters™ / Desocupar Los Albergues® is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign that is spearheaded by NBCUniversal Local, a division of NBCUniversal. Every year, NBCUniversal Local’s NBC and Telemundo owned stations, plus affiliated stations, partner with animal shelters and rescues in their communities to host Clear The Shelters events. NBCUniversal Local’s Clear The Shelters campaign was inspired by a 2014 North Texas pet adoption event hosted by NBC 5 / KXAS and Telemundo 39 / KXTX and dozens of area shelters that resulted in the most adopted pets in one day for North Texas. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Local’s Clear The Shelters pet adoption campaign has resulted in more than a half-million pets finding new homes.
