PHOENIX — Maricopa County and the Bissell Pet Foundations are teaming up for Empty The Shelters for pet adoptions from Oct. 1-8.
The county announced in early August that the shelters had all reached maximum capacity with the West and East Valley shelters holding more than 800 pets and doubling up kennels.
Adopters will have to pay no more than $50 and local licensing fees.
Pets will also come home spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and licensed, according to Maricopa County.
As the space has hit a critical capacity, this is a very important time for Valley shelters.
“We can’t do our job well without the help from the community,” Jessie Caraveo, a senior communications officer with Maricopa County, said in August.
Established in 2016 and helping almost 118,000 pets find homes, Empty The Shelters is the largest funded adoption event in the nation.
