Until Every Pet Has a Home
Each year in North America, between 6 and 7 million pets enter shelters and over 1 million of them are euthanized. Shelters and rescues work tirelessly every day to address the pet overpopulation problem and they need help. With your support, BISSELL Pet Foundation provides much-needed financial assistance to change the outlook for thousands of dogs and cats, until every pet has a home. Here’s how we make a difference:
Adoption is central to addressing pet homelessness. By sponsoring adoption events and bringing attention to the importance of adoption, we get pets out of shelters and into loving homes. Adoption saves lives.
Unplanned litters from unsterilized homeless pets, and even family pets, add to the overburdened shelters in our nation. We love pets, but there are already more than enough in our world for everyone. By providing spay/neuter clinics, vaccinations, and proactive programs, we stop dogs and cats from multiplying. Sterilization gets to the root of the overpopulation problem.
We believe all pets should be microchipped and registered to help get reunited with their owners if lost. We provide thousands of microchips directly to our partners, and each pet we impact is required to have one. Microchips make sense.
Animal shelters face both human-made and natural disasters. During crises ranging from hurricanes to civil unrest and disease outbreaks to puppy mill raids, shelters know they can count on us to respond to their call. Emergency grant funding and The BPF National Shelter Alliance program will support shelters when disasters happen and help prepare them for the unexpected.
