GREAT FALLS — Over the past week, the Bissell Pet Foundation "Empty The Shelters" event has paid for 17 animal adoptions at the City of Great Falls Animal Shelter.

With such a good turn-out and more animals becoming available every day, the shelter and Bissell are extending the event for for several more days.

Great Falls Animal Shelter Volunteer Coordinator Laramie Smovire said, "It's been a great event. We've adopted 17 animals over the last week, which is phonomenial. but we're looking at going into a season where we're going to have more kittens coming in pretty regularly, for all of those feral cats that are having kittens, and of course dogs come in stray all the time."

She added, "The more animals we have here, at the beginning of this season, the less space that we have for those animals that are coming in, so we want to make sure that we get the opportunity to get as many animals out of the shelter as we possibly can, and of course we want everybody to have a forever pet."

The $4 adoptions will continue through Saturday, May 14th for all cats and dogs. Anyone interested in adopting should fill out an application on Great Falls Animal Shelter website.
