The Bissell pet foundation partnered with 51 Michigan animal shelters to host their second 'Empty the Shelters' adoption event Oct 22. The event has already doubled its reach since their May 7th event, which had 24 participating shelters, and the foundation looks to add to the 605 animals already adopted from that event.

New pet owners will be responsible for a license fee, ranging from $7-$12. Those interested in adopting a pet should visit the event's webpage to check locations, times, and whether a location requires special adoption requirements.
