Assisting Shelters Amidst COVID-19 with Sponsored Adoption Fees By Appointment-only

In response to COVID-19, BISSELL Pet Foundation is sponsoring reduced adoption fees across different parts of the country starting Thursday, March 19. BPF wants to assist animal shelters that are struggling with fewer volunteers and staff to care for their animals. With a rather atypical Empty the Shelters adoption special in place for the next week, the foundation hopes this will encourage families to add a furry quarantine buddy into their home in a time when it’s needed the most.

Many shelters have already been forced to eliminate all foot traffic in their facilities and nobody is coming to adopt. Organizations are scrambling to find fosters to take pets in during this desperate time and they need our help. This is why BPF will also honor foster-to-adopt cases during this time!

With BPF funding, you can adopt a pet for $25 by viewing adoptable animals on participating shelter websites. Once an online application is submitted, shelter staff will work with potential adopters to schedule an in-person appointment with social distancing in mind.
