Statewide Pet Adoption Event Saturday

The Bissell Pet Foundation is planning to hold yet another Empty the Shelters event this Saturday. The Grand Rapids-based animal welfare group will pay for the cost of adopting an animal at more than 50 shelters around Michigan. Spokesperson Holly Kroeze tells WSJM News that’s after a successful date back in May.

“We paid for all of the adoption fees, and more than 600 pets found wonderful, amazing homes in just one day, and it was such a great feeling, everyone was so excited, so we said to ourselves, ‘We have got to do this again,’” Korize said.

Kroeze says it can cost about $150 to adopt, and the Bissell Founation will go ahead and pay all of that for you on Saturday at its partner shelters. They include the Al-Van Humane Society in South Haven and the Van Buren Animal Shelter in Hartford. To find out more, call one of the shelters. To find out more, just follow this link.
