Finding a loving home for every pet is the ultimate goal of BISSELL Pet Foundation. As the nation’s largest funded adoption event, Empty the Shelters helps homeless pets find families by making adoption affordable for prospective pet owners. We do this by supporting participating organizations with reimbursement for each pet adopted. Adopters pay no more than $50 and local license fees.
Established in 2016, Empty the Shelters has helped over 140,000 pets find their loving families at participating shelters in 49 states and Canada. Events are held quarterly. Follow us on social media to see announcements for upcoming events.
This lifesaving reduced-fee adoption event is a Win-Win-Win:
Hundreds of BPF shelter partners across the country participate to connect homeless pets with families.
Thanks to BPF, adopters pay no more than $50 to adopt their new best friend who comes home spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Affordable adoption fees allow more pets to find homes opening lifesaving kennel space to allow shelters to save more lives.
