Now through May 15, 2022 you can adopt a cat, dog, or rabbit for just $25 in San Diego as part of the BISSELL Pet Foundation sponsored "Empty The Shelters" program.
Rancho Coastal Humane Society is participating May 2 through 15, 2022 at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. All interested adopters can find more details online at sdpets.org.
“Empty the Shelters,” BISSELL Pet Foundation’s largest program, began in 2016 as an effort to encourage more families to adopt a pet into their home. More than 83,000 pets have found adoptive homes through this reduced-fee adoption event. Since its inception, this lifesaving event has expanded to organizations in 45 states and Canada, partnering with a total of 443 animal welfare organizations.
“Shelters across the country are over capacity, and highly adoptable pets are at risk as we face one of the largest crises in recent years,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “BISSELL Pet Foundation is calling on people to visit their community shelters during ‘Empty the Shelters’ to save a life through adoption. Without you, there is no tomorrow for these deserving pets.”
This is the second year that Rancho Coastal Humane Society is participating in Empty the Shelters. The goal is to find lifelong homes for newly arrived pets and others who have been at the shelter long term.
Rancho Coastal Humane Society President Judi Sanzo says, “Spring is a time of renewal, and we renew our commitments to abandoned companion animals, our devoted volunteers and the people who open their hearts and homes to new furry family members.”
BISSELL Pet Foundation and Rancho Coastal Humane Society urge families to do their research about the pet they are interested in adopting, as well as adoption requirements.
