We believe pets deserve to feel special all the time, and lucky for them, it’s about to get even more special for our furry friends! April 11 marks National Pet Day – which for us is any day that ends in “y”. And while National Pet Day is all about our four-legged family members, we wanted to take some time to recognize the hard work of you, the pet parents, and give you something that will make caring for your pet (and their messes) easy.
Our pets are our best friends, there’s no doubt about that. There’s nothing like having a pet by our side, especially during the challenging times we’re in. We know pets have a positive impact on humans in times of stress, and scientists have actually linked the release of oxytocin to human interactions with dogs.
BISSELL has a long-standing partnership with Puppy Bowl and is bringing the MVP award to the show this year.
In Grand Rapids, those of us at BISSELL and much of the community are getting very excited for our annual BISSELL Blocktail Party. It’s a fun event to gather with our friends and furry companions, drink some beers, enjoy delicious ‘yappitizers’ and bid on awesome auction items all to benefit BISSELL Pet Foundation and pets in need.
Empty The Shelters started in May of 2016, and on October 14, BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) will hold its 9th event. Can you explain how the program came about and why it is so important to you and the foundation?
