“We are delighted to partner again with BISSELL Pet Foundation on their springtime ‘Empty the Shelters’ promotion that provides generous support to shelters across the country, including ours,” said Mark Kumpf, Detroit Animal Care Director. “Our partnership with BISSELL Pet Foundation allows us to waive adoption and licensing fees over a two-week period in May. By making adoptions more affordable, we are able to find homes for many deserving animals in need.  We also want to honor everyone who comes in on Mother’s Day with a flower in order to show our appreciation to them for opening their hearts and homes to a new four-legged friend.”

All animals are micro-chipped and neutered.
