October is Adopt a Shelter Pet Month, so what better time to talk about all the great work BISSELL Pet Foundation® (BPF) is doing? First, you should know, BISSELL® and BISSELL Pet Foundation® share more than just part of their name.
Everything we do at BISSELL® is rooted in our passion for pets. BISSELL Pet Foundation® exists to help every shelter animal find a home, while BISSELL® creates innovative products to tackle pet messes, so you can spend more time with your furry friends.
We have an entire team of pet parent engineers that understands what it takes to combine pet ownership with clean living. They’re behind products like our incredible Stomp ‘n Go® Pet Stain Lifting Pads, the Pet Stain Eraser™ Deluxe Cordless Portable Carpet Cleaner, our ICONpet™ Cordless Vacuum, and so many more products that make it easy and fast to clean up after pets.
BISSELL Pet Foundation® helps accomplish the goal of finding every pet a forever home through its adoption events, spay/neuter and microchip programs and collaboration efforts with their partner network of over 4600 shelters.
It’s very clear that pets are the heart of both BISSELL and BISSELL Pet Foundation’s missions, so together we are celebrating this Adopt A Shelter Pet Month in a few different ways. It kicks off on October 12 as BISSELL Pet Foundation® hosts a nationwide Empty the Shelters adoption event. At this event, adopters are asked to pay a $25 adoption fee and BPF covers the remaining cost. There are over 130 shelters in 26 states taking part with thousands of pets waiting for a loving home.
The other big way is through donations. All month long, BISSELL® will double its donations to BISSELL Pet Foundation®. That means we’ll give the following amounts for each pet product purchased from BISSELL:
$2 for pet products up to $39.99
$10 for a pet product $40 - $99.99
$20 for a pet product $100 - $39.99
$50 for a pet product $399 and up*
*Through 10/31/19, buy any pet product on BISSELL.com, and a donation is automatically applied, based on the following criteria: $0-$39.99 - $2 donation; $40 - $99.99 - $10 Donation; $100 - $398.99 - $20 Donation; $399 up - $50 Donation. Purchases made at retailers must be activated at www.BISSELL.com/save-pets.
BISSELL® donates to BISSELL Pet Foundation® all year long, not just during October. More than $1 million dollars will be awarded in 2019 alone! So, when you buy a pet product, you can activate a donation from BISSELL® to BISSELL Pet Foundation® to help them continue their lifesaving work. And when you buy directly from BISSELL.com, the donation is automatically donated, so all you have to do is feel good and enjoy your new purchase! Depending on the price of the product, we’ll donate up to $25 dollars per product purchased.
We recently launched our new ICONpet™ High-Powered Cordless Vacuum. This pet product has a $25 donation activation that goes to BPF for every product sold, making it the highest donation amount to date! But it’s not just this product, every pet product purchase makes a difference in the lives of homeless pets. See how your purchase can change a life:
