BISSELL Pet Foundation Hosting “Empty the Shelters” Event this Weekend

Published

on

BISSELL Pet Foundation’s (BPF) Empty the Shelters (ETS) event will take place from Friday, July 10th through Sunday, July 12th. Over 160 of BPF’s shelter and rescue partners are participating in this reduced fee adoption event which will aim to find forever homes for thousands of cats and dogs. You could find adopt your new best friend for $25 or less!

South Carolina Participants Include:

  • Charleston Animal Society – North Charleston
  • Dorchester PAWS – Summerville
  • Pet Helpers – James Island

With fostering pets becoming so prevalent during COVID-19, BPF will also honor foster-to-adopt cases that start as fosters during the weekend of July 10-12and are finalized up to one week after the event.

“More pets run away on the 4th of July than any other day of the year,” Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation, said. “The increase in shelter intake puts pressure on our partners, who are already working with limited staff and funding due to COVID-19. The best way for us to support them is to help their pets find loving homes.”

Participating shelters will work with interested adopters to schedule meet and greet appointments following local COVID-19 guidelines. To find an adoptable animal at a participating location near you, visit www.bissellpetfoundation.org/ets. Using the filter function on the map, your local shelter’s information will populate. For accurate hours of operation and processing procedures, visit the organization’s website linked on the page.

All animals included in the ETS promotion will be microchipped and spayed/neutered to prevent further pet homelessness.

Since the program began in 2016, Empty the Shelters has found homes for 37,394 pets and counting. During the COVID-19 pandemic alone, 6,231 pets were adopted during two ETS events executed by appointment only.

If you’re unable to adopt, you can still support the BISSELL Pet Foundation’s work at www.bissellpetfoundation.org/donate.
