OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is officially kicking off with an Empty the Shelters pet adoption event in Oakland County.

The event, held by the Oakland County Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center and the BISSELL Pet Foundation, will be on Oct. 1 and Oct. 2.

The pet adoption fee is only $25.

“There are a hundred animals waiting for their forever home at the pet adoption center,” said Bob Gatt, Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center manager, in a press release. “We are grateful for BISSELL Pet Foundation’s continued support throughout the pandemic.”

All animals included in the Empty the Shelters promotion will be 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. Call 248-858-1070 to schedule an appointment. More information can be found here.

Eighty-two adoptable cats and 28 adoptable dogs will be available for adoption.
