It seems like everyone that I know has a pet dog, or a pet cat, or even 1 dog and 3 cats. We all love animals and most people love their pets no matter what!

According to the Lansing State Journal, the Capital Area Humane Society in Lansing has 19 pets available for adoption.

Pets ranging from dogs to cats to guinea pigs. They can't have visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, so maybe all the pets will find homes through a virtual adoption.

Thanks to donations from the Bissell Pet Foundation, the Capital Area Humane society is offering pet adoptions until May 17 for $25. That is down from the standard rate of $175 for dogs and $50 for cats.

Okay, can I just say that's a great price for pet adoptions! $25.00 until May 17 is a good bargain. Not only will you have a family companion, you'll have years of great memories with your new furry friend!

By the way, the donations come through a movement called Empty the Shelters, which is a process that has been easier than some in the adoption community saw coming.

When Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer ordered most businesses to close in late March, the animals stuck in shelters largely went to live with foster care families to wait out the unpredictable period.

Some people need pets now more than ever. During quarantine, more than 3,000 pet adoptions have taken place through the Bissell Pet Foundation.
