Adoption bonanza is back in Michigan on October 22!

This Saturday, adoption fees will be waived for new pet parents at various shelters throughout Michigan.

The reduced adoption fee is part of Empty the Shelters, an event that focuses extra attention on a day to get dogs, cats, and more out the door and into loving homes. The event is sponsored by Bissell Pet Foundation.

Five months ago, the same adoption bonanza saw 605 pet adoptions in one day, completely clearing six shelters in the Mitten State.

The only money owners have to cough up is a $10 licensing fee; pretty darn affordable in exchange for a best friend.

Empty the Shelters launched in 2011 as an annual affair but has since increased in frequency. And there's no question about it; the event is always a success!
