BISSELL Pet Foundation responds to crises ranging from natural disasters to disease outbreaks and puppy mill cases, even in the most difficult situations. Our RescueLove Program funds the recovery of victims of cruelty or disaster. Donations to this program offset the cost of veterinary care, transport and other essential services to give deserving pets their best chance to find a loving home. These pets are counting on you to make a difference.
In the first eight months of 2022 alone, BISSELL Pet Foundation responded to 27 cases involving pets who had endured significant cruelty and neglect. Here are a few examples of the work we have funded already in 2022:
Kentucky Humane, KY: BPF facilitated placement and assisted with funding for 101 dogs, predominantly Huskies, from a puppy mill case.
Greater Birmingham Humane Society, AL: BPF received a request for immediate assistance with more than 100 dogs requiring temporary, local sheltering due to a cruelty investigation. BPF facilitated and funded transport of 96 dogs from the shelter.
Dickson County Humane Society, TN: When BPF received a call requesting funding for emergency veterinary care, we responded immediately to assist 40 dogs from a hoarding case who were covered in mange. Several of the dogs had no hair, infected skin and bleeding sores.
Humane Society of Tulsa, OK: BPF was called to assist with a hoarding case involving 131 dogs and cats rescued from horrific conditions. BPF funded a flight and facilitated placement for 140 pets from Tulsa to Connecticut, including most of the hoarding case victims.
Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia, PA: BPF received a request for immediate assistance when the shelter broke with uncontrollable pneumovirus among the dog population. BPF provided financial support for temporary sheltering of infected dogs and mentorship, training and support for staff through our National Shelter Alliance.
