If you’ve been thinking about making a furry addition to your family, we’re going to say something we usually wouldn’t: wait!

This Aug. 19 is NBCUniversal’s third annual Clear the Shelters event, sponsored by Petco and VIP Petcare, during which animal shelters and rescue centers around the country waive or reduce adoption fees in hopes of, well, clearing the shelters of all pets looking for forever homes.

This year promises to be the biggest yet, with shelters from coast to coast and Puerto Rico (including Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s Vanderpump Dogs) participating, and a slew of celebrities getting involved, too. Since 2015, the event has helped place 70,000 needy animals in happy homes.

We’ll be bringing you the latest on pets up for adoption (and some heartwarming stories of animals rescued last year) in PEOPLE and People.com, so stay tuned in the weeks ahead. And for the moment, enjoy this extra-adorable clip of some sweet animals who are super excited to head home with you on Aug. 19.

Visit cleartheshelters.com for the latest on participating cities and organizations.
