"Empty the Shelters" is back.
The day-long promotion that pays for your adoption fee at dozens of Michigan animal shelters will return Saturday thanks to the Grand Rapids-based BISSELL Pet Foundation.
The adoption fee usually averages $150 per dog and $60 per cat. You'll still be on the hook for the licensing fee, which usually costs $7-12.
BISSELL occasionally hosts "Empty the Shelters" to help clear space for new animals at participating shelters. It smashed a record with more than 1,900 cats and dogs finding new homes in October 2016.
View a list of participating shelters here. You're also advised to contact your participating shelter directly in case you need to complete an adoption application.
