Empty the Shelters is basically the equivalent of Christmas because dogs and cats at shelters around the state are all up for adoption at a reduced rate thanks to BISSELL Pet Foundation

Empty the Shelters will be Saturday, May 4th at 110 shelters in 20 states including Michigan. People will be able to stop at their local shelter and adopt a pet for only $25. The remaining cost will be covered by BISSELL. You will be responsible for dog licenses. The following shelters in West Michigan will be participating:
