GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Adoptions during the pandemic have spiked, BISSELL Pet Foundation says, and the Grand Rapids-based nonprofit organization is continuing to help furry friends find forever homes.
BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting its reduced fee Empty the Shelters event May 5 through May 9. BPF says it’s the largest event yet with 200 shelters participating across 36 states, with 42 being in Michigan.
Pets can be adopted for $25 or less and BPF will reimburse shelters to help cover costs to spay or neuter, microchip and vaccinate the animals.
BPF says it helped 18,359 pets find homes in 2020.
