It’s time again to Empty the Shelters in West Michigan!  Each year, tens of thousands of pets are abandoned or released to shelters in Michigan.  These animals are in desperate need of homes and families who will love them.  And now is the perfect time to help!

BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting their annual ‘Empty The Shelters’ event, a free adoption event on May 5th!  BISSELL will be paying all of the adoption fees at the dozens of shelters and rescue organizations across the state.  You will still be responsible for any licensing fees, which will vary in price from place to place.

If you have any questions about the free adoption process, BISSELL Pet Foundation's FAQ page can answer everything!

You can find an adoption site quickly and easily by visiting and clicking on Empty the Shelters!  If you work at a shelter want to apply to be part of the Empty the Shelters event, you can apply here.

Help save a pet’s life and bring a little bit of extra happiness to yours!
