Cat and dog lovers rejoice! Animal shelters across Chicago and the entire U.S. will waive adoption fees for their sheltered pets on Saturday, Aug. 15. The Anti-Cruelty Society is one of 32 shelters across the city that will participate in the national campaign. The campaign, known as “Clear the Shelter” was started by NBC and Telemundo in Texas last year.
