BISSELL Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelters” event is the largest funded adoption event in the country. With a goal of encouraging more families to choose adoption, this lifesaving effort has helped more than 190,000 pets find loving homes since 2016. As BISSELL Pet Foundation’s largest program, a total of 687 animal welfare organizations in 49 states and Canada have participated throughout the years. During BISSELL Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelters” quarterly national events, an average of 1,225 shelter pets are adopted each day.
"Our nation’s animal shelters are facing an overcrowding crisis unlike anything we have experienced in more than a decade. The devastating increase in owner surrenders and stray intakes has left tens of thousands of socialized, house-trained, and leash-trained pets desperate to find a home," said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. "Our Fall National ‘Empty the Shelters' will support the adoption of thousands of pets across the country, helping shelters in this critical time. Opening your home to a shelter pet saves a life and creates space to give another pet a chance."
League City Animal Care has participated in several Empty the Shelters events since 2021 which have been very successful. During our most recent Empty the Shelters event in July, 235 pets were adopted!
“Our community loves to adopt during the Empty the Shelters event and we always see a fantastic increase in pets finding their new families during the events!,” said Lynette Bodmer, Community Outreach Coordinator at League City Animal Care. “We are so appreciative of this fantastic opportunity provided by the BISSELL Pet Foundation, especially now as we are at critical capacity in our canine kennels. We invite our community to visit during this event and take advantage of the waived fees!”
Adoption is a lifetime commitment. BISSELL Pet Foundation and League City Animal Care urge families to do their research about the pet they are interested in adopting, as well as adoption requirements.
