The BC Humane Society says it found homes for 41 pets over the weekend during the “Empty the Shelters” free adoption event that included pets visiting TownSquare Media’s Octoberfest at Mountaintop Grove October 14.

16 dogs and 25 cats in Broome County were adopted.

Nationwide, the Bissell Pet Foundation program reports 2-thousand, 142 pets from 76 shelters found homes.

All participating shelters and rescue organizations followed their standard adoption and screening requirements but Bissell picked up the adoption fees.

So far the Empty the Shelters initiative has helped to find homes for over 10-thousand pets since it started in May of last year.
