A local animal shelter in Rockford, Illinois is waiving the adoption fees on tons of their furry residents and it's happening for two days only.

It always amazing to see shelters waive adoption fees on their pets, but I always remind people that there's more to adoption than just the initial excitement.


Feeding, grooming, medical attention, and other unexpected expenses are all major responsibilities in adopting your next furry companion.  Remember that!
