Pet Supply Plus is teaming up with Bissell and Pet Tails Rescue to try to empty their shelters with a free cat adoption day Sat., Oct. 14
During this event Bissell pays the adoption fee for a family to adopt a pet, allowing people to take home a furry friend without any fee. The event will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pet Supplies Plus, 3593 Alpine Ave. NW , in Grand Rapids.
“I heard they’re going to have like 25 cats,” Steve Ulberg, a manager at the store said, “Usually they have about eight or 10.”
You will need to be pre-approved to be able to adopt and applications are due on Friday, (Oct. 13.) To get an application you can call the shelter at (616) 446-1591.
“They’re here like every other weekend,” Ulberg said, about Pet Tails Rescue. “In the fall more people are in town and adopting, I would assume most are going to get adopted on Saturday.”
