Even though ICACS is closed right now due to Covid-19, they are still hard at work trying to get pets into homes and providing help to owners who are having a hard time feeding their fur babies.

First let's talk about pet adoptions and how Bissell is helping out.

BISSELL Pet Foundation is doing another #emptytheshelter event during this unusual time. Bissell has adapted their event to work with shelters like ICACS that are closed to the public, but still doing adoptions by appointment! Be sure to check out the adoptable pets page at ac.ingham.org and send in an adoption inquiry to get started meeting awesome shelter pets currently staying in foster homes. (ICACS)
BISSELL Pet Foundation & Empty the Shelters (sponsoring reduced adoption fees across the country) happens Saturday, May 9 through Sunday, May 17. (Bissell)
