If you've been thinking about adding a furry friend to your family, Saturday, May 5th is the perfect time to do it!

According to MLive, the BISSELL Pet Foundation is bringing back 'Empty the Shelters'! During Empty the Shelter day, free adoption will be available at over 100 different shelters and rescue centers across the country. Pet adoption fees are usually around $150 for dogs and $60 for cats, but BISSELL will be covering all adoption fees to say thanks to families who choose adoption.
