2024 BISSELL Blocktail Party!

BISSELL Blocktail Party brought the rodeo back to town for the second year to raise funds to save the lives of pets across the country. 

On Monday, June 3, the festivities began at the Sponsor Party with an unforgettable night of music featuring a live performance by award-winning entertainer Sara Evans, known for platinum hits “Suds in the Bucket” & “A Little Bit Stronger,” along with a strolling dinner and an auction that made attendees giddy up!

Then, on June 4, we kept the rodeo going with Blocktail returning to the East Grand Rapids Track. There was fun, food, games, spirits, and adorable dogs available for adoption, all in a great outdoor space for pets and their people.

Because Blocktail is BISSELL Pet Foundation’s primary fundraising event, providing critically needed support to give homeless pets a second chance, we hope y’all will join us in 2025! Since 2011, gifts have enabled BPF to impact 734,405 pets (and counting!) through our lifesaving programs.


We’re tippin’ our hats to our 2024 sponsors!
