Are you thinking of adding a furry friend to your family? Who would not be gratified at the sight of a happy dog who can’t wait to greet you at the end of a hard day? Dogs share our lives in a way that most other animals can’t, and their faithful companionship is something you can’t take for granted.
Normally, adopting a dog could cost up to $150. However, this weekend, the Bissel Pet Foundation is covering adoption fees at shelters across Mid-Michigan and the state. They bring back the “Empty the Shelters day” that provides free adoption to dozens of Michigan animal shelters and rescue centers on Oct. 22. These includes seven in the Greater Detroit area.

WEST MICHIGAN — Are you thinking of adding a furry friend to your family?
BISSELL Pet Foundation is bringing back Empty the Shelters day, providing free adoption to dozens of Michigan animal shelters and rescue centers on Oct. 22, including seven in the Greater Detroit area.
The last time they held this event in May, 605 cats and dogs were placed in loving homes. This time, BISSELL is hoping to find homes for 1,000 pets. The Grand Rapids-based nonprofit will pay all adoption fees at 54 shelters and rescue organizations across the state and will thank families for choosing adoption with the gift of an AdoptBox. Each AdoptBox is stocked with toys and treats for dogs or cats, an ID tag, collar, and BISSELL cleaning products.
“Most pets in shelters and rescues have never experienced a loving home and ‘Empty the Shelters’ will give so many pets the second chance they deserve,” says Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation.
