Have you or the kids been wanting a pet? If so, today would be a great day to adopt a pet from a local animal shelter.

KLFY-TV is taking part in "Clear The Shelters" and they ask that you help give an animal a great home he or she deserves.

Many of the local shelters or rescue centers are at full capacity and it's time to give a dog or cat a "forever home."

If you would like to adopt a pet here are some of the shelters you can visit:
