Foundation, BTAA helping 'Empty the Shelters'

| July 11, 2023 1:00 AM

Bissell Pet Foundation, a national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending pet homelessness, is teaming up with MetLife Pet Insurance for the foundation’s upcoming “Empty the Shelters” reduced-fee adoption event this month.

With the shared goal of helping pets find and stay in loving homes, this collaboration ensures more shelters are able to participate in the program. From July 6 to 31, “Empty the Shelters” is taking place at more than 335 shelters in 44 states with spayed/neutered, vaccinated pets available for adoption for just $50 or less.  

Among those participating in the event is the Better Together Animal Alliance.

“Empty the Shelters” is the nation’s largest funded adoption event and has helped nearly 158,000 pets find homes across the country and in Canada since its inception in 2016.

Through the program, the event provides reduced adoption fees at shelters, typically ranging from $0 to $50 per animal adoption.
