Empty the Shelters

October 4 @ 12:00 pm - October 10 @ 4:00 pm

BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) is once again aiming to Empty the Shelters across the country, starting Monday, October 4 through Sunday, October 10.

At UPAWS the event will include:

Special pricing is for dogs & cats 8 months on up. Small critters are all ages.

Dogs will be $25 to adopt

Cats and small animals will be $5.

This includes their spay or neuter, vaccines, health check, microchip, and more!

Please note, some dogs require multiple meets.

To save time, we encourage you to pre-fill out an interest form at this link: https://upaws.org/animal-interest-form/

Adoptions are on first-come/first-served approval, so we cannot guarantee a specific animal will be available even if you have filled out a Pet Adoption Interest Form. You can keep an eye on our available pet web pages. As animals are adopted, our computer program automatically removes them from the website.

The benefit of filling out a Pet Adoption Interest Form is that it saves you time at UPAWS if you decide to adopt. It is also helpful for UPAWS when processing adoptions.
