It’s time again to Empty the Shelters!  Each year, tens of thousands of pets are abandoned or released to shelters.  These animals are in desperate need of homes and families who will love them.  And now is the perfect time to help!

BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting its annual ‘Empty The Shelters’ event, an adoption event on Saturday, October 12th!  BISSELL will be paying most of the adoption fees at dozens of shelters and rescue organizations across the country.  You will still be responsible for any licensing fees, which will vary in price from place to place.

On Saturday October 12, BISSELL Pet Foundation will help #EmptytheShelters by sponsoring adoption fees at 125+ shelters across the U.S. For the reduced fee of $25, you can adopt a furry friend.
