Giving Hope in the Golden Years: Meet Rosie

BISSELL Pet Foundation has been helping save animals across the United States and Canada since 2011. Founded by Cathy Bissell, BISSELL Pet Foundation was a natural extension of her love for animals and commitment to their well-being.

BISSELL Pet Foundation has touched the lives of over 94,000 pets. BISSELL pet-specific product sales support the efforts of BISSELL Pet Foundation across the country. These products range from traditional upright vacuum cleaners, which collect pet hair and clean up everyday messes, to carpet cleaners that tackle tough messes and stains. With your help, BISSELL will donate over $1 million in 2017 to support BISSELL Pet Foundation, helping to reduce the number of animals in shelters and rescues and finding a loving home for every pet. This includes senior animals that are often passed over at shelters, like Rosie, a 12-year-old Dachschund who was surrendered when her owner could no longer care for her special needs. Sadly, this situation is not uncommon for senior pets—which is where the work of BISSELL Pet Foundation comes into play.
