DETROIT (WWJ) – Looking to add a bit of warmth and wag to your home this fall? You can help ‘Empty the Shelters’ on Saturday, Oct. 22 and give a dog or cat a forever home.
Cathy Bissell hopes hundreds will take advantage of the opportunity to give a pet a home.
The Grand Rapids-based non-profit, BISSELL Pet Foundation, will pay all adoption fees at more than 50 shelters and rescue organizations during the one-day adoption event.
“We will cover their adoption fee at these organizations – at every single organization – we will not be covering … the license. They will have to get a license for their pet and that can range from $7 to $12,” says Bissell, founder of the pet foundation.
Bissell hopes to double the number of pets adopted during their May event — with a goal of 1,200 cats and dogs finding new families.
