June is both the ASPCA’s Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and the American Humane Association’s Adopt a Cat Month. That makes it a very special month for cats. At BISSELL and Fear Free, we have a soft spot for shelter kitties, and we want to help them find homes. Here are 12 tips for finding just the right one to join your family and how to ensure a happy homecoming.
So much has changed in the last few weeks, and we know things will continue to change every day, but one thing that will never falter is the joy pets bring to our lives. These are times unlike any other, and it didn’t take long into self-quarantine for us to realize that the pets we once rescued are now rescuing us.
A favorite perk for some Associates at BISSELL Headquarters is the fact that we are a pet-friendly workplace. That means on any given day you can walk the halls and encounter nearly a dozen dogs working alongside their parents. One dog Associates often have the pleasure of seeing during the work day is Moose. Just last month, the rescued English Springer Spaniel celebrated his sixth birthday!
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.
One dog who’s a regular around here is Jem. While her dad, BISSELL Associate Colin, spends his day working as a Senior Industrial Designer, Jem spends hers getting attention from Colin’s fellow Associates.
Here at BISSELL® Headquarters, there are some dogs everyone knows because they’re here almost every day. Jay Gatsby is one of them. The 6-year-old German Shepherd mix goes by a few names besides his full name; a lot of people call him just Jay, Jay-Jay or Gatsby. His mom, BISSELL Associate Devyn adopted him back in 2013. Devyn says when she met Jay, he was pretty sick and needed a loving forever home as he worked to get back to full health, so that’s exactly what she gave him.
Many people say their holidays are incomplete without things like decorations, snow on the ground, cookies, gifts, music, and so much more. But if you ask us, the one thing that completes our holidays is our beloved holiday cleaning checklist. We know for a lot of people, cleaning is their least favorite thing about this season, but hear us out, because we just may change your mind.
One of the more stressful parts of getting your home ready for the holidays is planning your parties and how you’ll host your family. All it takes is the smallest hiccup to throw that planning off track. At BISSELL®, we’re firm believers that messes, no matter their size, should not be the thing that crashes your party.
They call it the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be one of the most mess-prone times of the year. Don’t let merry messes bring your holiday spirit down. Here’s a list of products that are perfect for cleaning up some of the season’s most notorious spills and stains.
For pets, holidays can seem more like a holidaze: they can be stressed by all the to-ing and fro-ing, the visitors coming and going, the strange decorations, the increased number of package deliveries, and even the enticing aromas of holiday baking and roasting.
Black Friday is one of those days that always creeps up on me and when it arrives, I can’t help but check out all the steals and deals. I love it, not just for the sales, but for the reminder that it’s time to start buying presents for loved ones for the holidays.
