All potential adopters are encouraged to pre-register for the event to speed the adoption process. Pre-register in person by coming to KCAS located at 740 Fuller NE, Grand Rapids, MI. 49503.

Potential adopters must provide proof that any other animals in their home are licensed and up to date on vaccines. People should also be prepared to provide contact information for their current pet’s veterinarians. People wishing to adopt dogs who are renters, are also asked to provide proof from their landlord that dogs are allowed in their homes.

“This is an excellent opportunity for people to adopt,” says Namiko Ota-Novesky, Public Health Program Supervisor at KCAS. “We are thankful to the Bissell Pet Foundation for providing the financial support that makes this all possible. Imagine how thankful your new pet will be to have a permanent home this holiday season.”
