“Empty the Shelters” Holiday Hope Event

Bissell Pet Foundation is bringing hope to homeless pets across the country this holiday season with its “Empty the Shelters – Holiday Hope” event Dec. 6-20, 2021. Participating shelters across the country will reduce adoption fees to help pets find their adoptive families.

The effort has helped more than 67,758 pets find homes in shelters throughout the country since 2016. During each nationwide event, Bissell Pet Foundation sponsors reduced adoption fees for $25 or less. The “Empty the Shelters – Holiday Hope” event will be hosted in more than 220 shelters in 40 states and Canada.

“Shelters are overcrowded and in desperate need of support due to slowed adoption rates and increased length of stay for pets,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of Bissell Pet Foundation. “With so many people seeking to add pets to their family around this time of year, our ‘Empty the Shelters – Holiday Hope’ event is the perfect opportunity to make a difference in your community by saving a life and creating space to give another homeless pet a chance.”
