This Friday and Saturday only, Winnebago County Animal Services is once again hosting the Bissell Pet Foundation's "Empty The Shelters Holiday Hope Event", and this is your chance to adopt a new furry family member for a discounted fee.

The event will take place on Friday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Winnebago County Animal Services at 4517 N Main St. in Rockford.

Here's the thing though, if you plan on adopting a pet during this event it is HIGHLY recommended that you get your adoption application approved in advance. People who come to the shelter with their approved adoption card already in hand will get first pick of the animals available for adoption.

You can fill out an adoption application right now at wcasrock.org.
