Loving animals finally found their forever home thanks to the SPCA of South West Michigan!

'Empty The Shelters' is a national adoption day for shelter animals thanks to Brissell! This past weekend you could adopt a pet free of charge! The event is put on by Brissell and the reason why is ...

“Finding a loving, forever home for every pet is the ultimate goal of BISSELL Pet Foundation. Sometimes our furry friends need a little extra help, and that’s why we sponsor EMPTY THE SHELTERS free adoption days. BPF pays all the adoption fees during these events to encourage prospective pet owners to choose adoption.”

The SPCA of South West Michigan was an incredible place to spend sometime this weekend!

When you pulled up volunteers where their to help you find a parking space. The line was long to get in,  but the volunteers passed out the proper paper work you needed to fill out so you could adopt. Free popcorn and cupcakes when you walked through the door, and then you simply fall in love! Many WONDERFUL animals found a home, but there are plenty more still waiting for a home to call their own!
