On Saturday, April 29, we’re teaming up with the Bissell Pet Foundation to empty the shelters.
Across the state, more than 60 shelters will participate in the effort to adopt out every single dog and cat without a home. Here’s how it works: Bissell Pet Foundation will cover the adoption fees for pets adopted on April 29. Adopters will also receive an AdoptBox to take home, full of treats and goodies to get pets settled in.
If you’re looking to adopt from us on Empty the Shelter Day, we’re happy to help! Our adoption process and screening will be the same as it’s always been, since the welfare of our pets is our top priority. Depending on where you live, you’ll want to make sure you still pay the city licensing fee, since that’s not covered by the Empty the Shelters project. In Dearborn, the license fee for dogs is $8.
On Empty the Shelters day, we hope to find homes for every dog and cat we have. Last year, participating Michigan animal shelters successfully place over 2,800 pets.
