Empty the Shelters

  • BISSELL Headquarters 2345 Walker Avenue Northwest Grand Rapids, MI, 49544 United States (map)

Thanks to Cathy Bissell and the BISSELL Pet Foundation for sponsoring the adoption fees of 12 DACC dogs that we're hauling out to BISSELL headquarters in Grand Rapids for their shot at a forever home during Empty the Shelters.

The week leading up to May 5th will be all hands on deck for our volunteers trying to get our dogs ready for their big day. And then bright and early on Saturday, May 5th, we'll load up and ship out. The event in Grand Rapids is from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (or earlier, if we run out of dogs!) and we will also needs volunteers to walk the dogs around, talk them up, and help their prospective owners sign on the dotted line. Are you available to volunteer? Email the volunteer coordinator at or give a shout in our volunteer Facebook page and let us know what you can help with because these dogs deserve it!
