GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — For the second straight year, the BISSELL Pet Foundation is covering adoption costs at the Kent County Animal Shelter starting next week and lasting until the end of the year as part of the “Home For The Holidays” campaign.

“Home for the Holidays” kicks off on Nov. 23, according to a Tuesday release.

“With the support of the BISSELL Pet Foundation, we are again able to provide free adoptions for deserving pets in Kent County and make the holidays happier for families in our community,” Kent County Animal Shelter Supervisor Carly Luttmann said in a statement. “All adopted pets will be up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. There is a $12 license fee required to adopt a dog.”

The animal shelter requires a pre-adoption counsel and application. Adoptions are processed from 9:30 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m at the shelter at 740 Fuller Ave. NE in Grand Rapids.

In 2014, BISSELL helped the animal shelter find homes for 1,028 pets — a record. 270 of those pets were adopted during the holiday campaign. Both organizations hope to increase that number this year.
