If you’ve always wanted a dog or a cat but have been putting it off, the Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center and BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) may help you make your decision a little easier — and at a huge savings.
Beginning today through Friday, pet adoption fees have been slashed from $139.50 to $25 for a dog and $15 from $57.50 for a cat, courtesy of Bissell and its Empty the Shelters promotion. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the pet adoption center is open by appointment-only from 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m. daily. Prospective pet owners should call 248-858-1070 to schedule an appointment.
“Pets make wonderful companions and there is no better time to bring home a pet,” said Bob Gatt, center manager. “The Bissell Pet Foundation continues to be a generous partner and we are grateful for its support during the pandemic.”
All animals included in the Empty the Shelters promotion are microchipped and spayed or neutered to prevent further pet homelessness. To adopt a pet, bring a driver’s license or state identification, complete an application, and pay the $25 fee.
About 25 dogs and 70 cats are available for adoption. Some of the dogs will be adopted through a rescue organization that will be on site. For more information or to view the pet inventory online, go to OakGov.com/PetAdoption.
This is the seventh Empty the Shelter promotion by Bissell this year. Since inception in 2016, more than 40,500 pets have found new homes. Bissell supports nearly 170 shelters.
