The BISSELL Pet Foundation Hosts Its “Empty the Shelter” Spring Adoption Event

ST. LOUIS — Animal shelters across the country are overcapacity, and because of that, adoptable pets might not have a chance to find their forever homes.

To ensure that pets have a chance to find loving homes, the BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting its National Spring Adoption Event “Empty the Shelters”.

This is a week-long adoption event starting tomorrow, where shelters are offering reduced adoption fees to help these animals find loving homes.

The BISSELL Pet Foundation aims to “empty shelters” by sponsoring a reduced $25 adoption fee.

It runs until May 8 and eight area shelters are participating: Saint Louis County Animal Care & Control, The Animal Protective Association of Missouri, CARE STL, St. Joseph Animal Control & Rescue, Central Missouri Humane Society, Humane Society of Southwestern Missouri, Franklin County Society of Missouri and the Humane Society of Southeastern Missouri.

More than 275 shelters in 45 states will participate in this lifesaving event to place deserving pets into loving homes.

The BISSELL Pet Foundation was founded in 2011. Empty the Shelters has helped 83,055 pets find homes across the country and in Canada since its inception in 2016.
