Lexi, a 3-year-old German shepherd mix, pops up out of his kennel at the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin on Wednesday. The BISSELL Pet Foundation is funding most of the cost of pet adoptions at the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin from May 5-9.


Adoption fees for pets at the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin will be reduced May 5-9 thanks to a nationwide adoption event.

BISSEL Pet Foundation will sponsor pet adoptions at 200 shelters across 26 states during its Empty the Shelters event, according to a news release.

Cats and dogs will be available to adopt for $25 each. The humane society prefers to process adoption requests on-site the day of adoption, according to the release.

The foundation reimburses shelters for all adoptions during the event to cover the costs of spaying, neutering, microchipping, vaccination and more.

The foundation has helped 49,360 pets find homes since 2016, according to the release.
