The “Empty the Shelters” event began in 2016 as an effort to encourage more families to adopt a pet into their home. Since its inception, BISSELL Pet Foundation has expanded its “Empty the Shelters” reach to organizations in 45 states and Canada, partnering with a total of 414 shelters. The goal for the summer 2021 event is to find forever homes for 4,000 pets.
“BISSELL Pet Foundation’s ‘Empty the Shelters’ events have become a valuable tool for our shelter partners to find loving families for their pets, allowing them to support their community and other shelters who struggle,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We are excited to have 40 states – the most ever – represented in our July event. Thousands of pets across the country will find forever homes, and that’s what it’s all about.”
