BISSELL Empty the Shelters Adoption Event



Thanks to BISSELL Pet Foundation, May 7th will be forever known as “Empty the Shelters” day to hundreds of dogs and cats across Michigan. 

BPF will pay all adoption fees at more than 20 shelters and rescue organizations and will thank families for choosing adoption with the gift of an AdoptBox™. Please see the full list of participants at the BPF website.


Kalamazoo Animal Rescue will be participating at the event center at BISSELL Homecare in Grand Rapids. KAR will have adoptable cats ONLY for the free adoption event. The cats that qualify will be listed under our event page on our website.

Hours: 11am – 3pm

KAR cat Jerry was featured in one of Bissell's promo videos. Here he is showing off the Cat Kit Adoption Box. Jerry was recently adopted.

 Keep checking the CATS scheduled on our event page. If you are interesting in adopting a particular cat, you need to adopt them NOW and pay our normal adoption rate. KAR cannot hold cats until the BISSELL event! 

Our adoption process is EXACTLY the same. All potential adopters MUST fill out an adoption application. They will be screened and approved. KAR needs to do vet checks and apartment checks, so please make sure your vet and/or apartment manager knows that we need to call for this information. 

You can find the GENERAL CAT application here.

Please also read our de-claw statement here.

Please be PATIENT with our volunteers screening applications. We will be flooded with applications and questions, so our normal response window of 24-48hrs may not be possible. 

We hope we will find some amazing homes for deserving pets and be able to save more lives thanks to this partnership with BISSELL Pet Foundation. For any questions about KAR's participation, please contact us. For any questions about the BISSELL event, please visit their Facebook page.
