Junior Board of Directors

BISSELL Pet Foundation’s team is small but mighty. Our work is made possible with support from BISSELL Inc., donors, and our passionate Junior Board, who lead events and campaigns while advocating for adoption daily. Each Junior Board member has fundraising goals and fosters relationships within the community to bring our mission to the forefront.
