Crisis & Disaster Response

Responding to the Unimaginable

Why We Do This Work

Shelters need assistance when facing unexpected, urgent events where pets are in danger. Our partner organizations know they can count on BISSELL Pet Foundation to respond to their call in life-threatening situations requiring an immediate response.

How We Make a Difference

BISSELL Pet Foundation responds to crises ranging from natural disasters to disease outbreaks and puppy mill cases, even in the most difficult situations. Working in collaboration with our National Shelter Alliance experts throughout the country, we assist with large-scale cases where pets desperately need medical care; work with our partners when disease outbreak requires pets to be temporarily housed and treated; and regularly transport pets to safety before hurricanes strike. Prepared to address crises, both human-made and natural, BPF responds when others organizations cannot.

Our Impact

Doodle dog with matted fur saved from a puppy mill

In the first few months of 2022, Greater Birmingham Humane Society experienced a large-scale hoarding case of 140+ sick dogs, two tornadoes, a distemper outbreak and a puppy mill bust. Each and every time we were asked to respond to these disasters, we said, “Yes.” We always do, but only because of the support of the BISSELL Pet Foundation team. Thank you for being the "Yes" that gives hope, prevents death, stops suffering and saves so many lives.”
