Looking to add a little joy to your household? Need a new best friend? You should get yourself to the Ulster County SPCA on Wiedy Road in Kingston this Saturday, Oct. 6, for their Empty the Shelters event.

The UCSPCA is wants you to help them empty their shelters and find good homes for their adoptable pets with the support of the Bissell Pet Foundation. Bissell will be covering the adoption costs for the animals to help them meet their new best friend and find a loving forever home. This event is one day only and the shelter hours are from 11:30 am - 3:30 pm.

The UCSPCA does not hold animals for adoption, so they suggest you get here when they open if you have a specific pet you would like to meet. Please bring any animals, kids, and all members of your family for a meet and greet. Make sure you bring your driver's license, up to date shot records for any animal in your home, and possibly a carrier or leash for your pet. For more info, visit the UCSPCA facebook page.
