Bissell Empty the Shelters
BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting its fall 2021 national “Empty the Shelters” adoption event Oct. 4 –10, a quarterly effort that has helped more than 61,781 pets find their forever homes in area shelters. During each nationwide event, BISSELL Pet Foundation helps sponsor reduced adoption fees for $25 or less per dog, cat, puppy and kitten. This summer’s event will be hosted in more than 180 shelters in 35 states, including Halifax Humane Society.
Halifax Humane Society will participate Oct. 4 –10, 2021 at 2364 LPGA Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL, offering $25 adoption fees for adult cats and dogs over 1-year old.

The “Empty the Shelters” event began in 2016 as an effort to encourage more families to adopt a pet into their home. Since its inception, BISSELL Pet Foundation has expanded its “Empty the Shelters” reach to organizations in 45 states and Canada, partnering with a total of 414 shelters.
“Shelters are in dire need of support in the wake of natural disasters and overcrowding due to obstacles such as increased length of stay and slowed adoptions for mid-to-large sized dogs," said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “Our fall 'Empty the Shelters' will support the adoption of thousands of pets across the country, helping shelters in this time of crisis. Opening your home to a shelter pet will save a life and create space to give another pet a chance.”
