Humane Indiana Clear the Shelters Event

In Munster, Humane Indiana and shelters across the country are taking part in Clear the Shelters, an annual nationwide pet adoption and donation drive. Clear the Shelters raises funds that help animals in need find homes and empowers shelters to take care of them and help them get adopted. Each 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 is a division of NBCUniversal.

“Clear the Shelters helps find homes for pets that have been waiting to find their forever homes. These are wonderful dogs and cats that have so much love to give, and we want to encourage those who may not have visited the shelter before to come find their new family member,” said Humane Indiana Shelter Director Jessica Petalas. As part of Clear the Shelters, Humane Indiana significantly reduces adoption fees to $20 on special animals on Saturday, August 27, 2022 at the shelter on 45th Street in Munster. The shelter is open from 11 am to 5 pm Saturday.

The reduced adoption fees represent a discount of up to $230 during Clear the Shelter. All adoptions at Humane Indiana include spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping.
In order to offset the cost, Clear the Shelter also encourages donations from the community to help give every pet a home. Visit to donate .
