After successfully placing over 23,000 pets in homes, BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) is back to 'Empty the Shelters' at Pet Helpers. On Saturday, October 12th, adopters will have a chance to bring a pet home from the Pet Helpers Adoption Center for the reduced rates while BPF sponsors the remaining cost.
“Our shelter partners continue to give feedback that 'Empty the Shelters' is saving lives in their area,” Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation, said. “Not only do thousands of pets find homes, but shelter and rescue organizations of all sizes collaborate to make the greatest impact possible for pets.”
BPF’s 'Empty the Shelters' program began in 2016 to capitalize on the foundation’s mission to find every pet a loving home.
All adoptable pets available during 'Empty the Shelters' will be microchipped and spayed/neutered. BPF requires that all microchips be registered to the adopter before they leave, to increase the chance of pets reuniting with their owners, if lost. A microchip registration and license fee may apply - costs may vary by location.
Pet Helpers Adoption Center is one of 125 organizations in 26 states taking part in this special adoption day. Many shelters require a preapproval process, which may require an in-person visit the week leading up to the event.
Please be reminded that adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. If you’re not able to adopt, please consider supporting BISSELL Pet Foundation’s lifesaving work at bissellpetfoundation.org/
