A Battle Creek animal shelter is joining a couple dozen around the state participating in a two day pet adoption event with reduced fees. It’s the latest in a series of adoption events underwritten by the Bissell Pet Foundation. They call it the “Empty The Shelters Holiday Hope” event.

Today and tomorrow, you can complete a pet adoption for just $25 dollars.  That’s a significant savings over typical costs which can easily run into the hundreds. Companion Cats in Battle Creek is participating along two shelters in Kalamazoo and dozens more statewide. Some shelters require pre approval.  This event has helped to find homes for nearly 27 thousand pets since it got underway in 2016.
