A special event is being held at two humane societies in northeast Michigan Saturday, which will be offering reduced adoption fees for cats and dogs.

Another BISSELL Pet Foundation Empty the Shelters event is being held at over 125 shelters in 25 states Saturday, including the Huron Humane Society is Alpena and the Alcona Humane Society in Lincoln.

During the event, residents will be able to adopt a cat or dog for $25 with BISSELL Pet Foundation picking up the balance.

“Our shelter partners continue to give feedback that Empty the Shelters is saving lives in their area,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “Not only do thousands of pets find homes, but shelter and rescue organizations of all sizes collaborate to make the greatest impact possible for pets.”

All adoptable pets available during Empty the Shelters will be microchipped and spayed or neutered. A microchip registration and license fee may apply.
