On Saturday, October 12, adopters will have a chance to bring a pet home for the reduced fee of $25 while BPF sponsors the remaining cost at Arizona Animal Welfare League, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control and Arizona Humane.
BPF's Empty the Shelters program began in 2016 to capitalize on the foundation's mission to find every pet a loving home. ETS aims to shed light on pet homelessness across the county and encourage families to adopt a pet and save a life.
All adoptable pets available during Empty the Shelters will be micro-chipped and spayed/neutered. BPF requires that all microchips must be registered to the adopter before they leave, to increase the chance of pets reuniting with their owners, if lost. A microchip registration and license fee may apply—costs may vary by location.
Arizona Animal Welfare League, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control and Arizona Humane are three of 125 organizations in 26 states taking part in this special adoption day. Many shelters require a preapproval process, which may require an in-person visit the week leading up to the event.
