Bring some love into your home. Adoption fees may be waived or significantly reduced on Saturday, August 17 at Kalamazoo shelters. The Humane Society also offers discounted services.

UPDATE: I found out a lot on a visit to the Kalamazoo Humane Society and apologize for any earlier confusion. The Humane Society currently has no animals for adoption on the premises. They do offer spaying and neutering and other services like vaccines and microchipping.  

On Saturday, August 17 from 10a-2p the Kalamazoo Humane Society and other area organizations will be at Blain's Farm and Fleet, 879 Mall Drive in Portage answering all your questions. 

Start thinking up a name. Luna, Bella, Max and Lucy show up on the most popular names lists for both dogs and cats. Charlie, Oliver, Daisy and Chopper are chosen often for dogs and cats' owners choose names like Simba, Chloe and Sophie. (Cats themselves don't seem to pay much attention.)

Clear the Shelters is a nationwide event happening on August 17, 2019, designed to find dogs, cats, puppies and kittens currently living in shelters forever homes. Adoption fees are discounted and waived altogether in some cases to get these animals (and humans) the love they need.

Kalamazoo Humane Society will be participating in the event, sponsored locally by Blain's Farm and Fleet in Portage. The new Humane Society space at 3661 Easy Street, just off Sprinkle Road, just South of I-94 will be filled with furry friends that you can meet, snuggle, cuddle and possibly take home and change your life. Pets can do that!
