YWAC slashes animal adoption fees through Sunday as part of ‘Empty Shelters’

All adoptable pets at the shelter, except puppies, can be adopted for $25, and the BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) will sponsor the remainder of the adoption fee.

Knoxville, Tenn. – The BISSELL Pet Foundation aims to “empty the shelters cutting adoption fees by $25 or less through Sunday at 200 participating shelters and rescues in 36 states, including Young-Williams Animal Center.

All adoptable pets at the shelter, except puppies, can be adopted for $25, and the BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) will sponsor the remainder of the adoption fee.

The mission of the BISSELL Pet Foundation is to find a loving home for every pet.

BPF makes adoption affordable and reimburses shelters for each animal adopted during the event to help cover neutering, microchipping, vaccinations and other care costs.

The foundation is seeking donations to continue expanding ETS to other regions, and 100% of contributions will go directly to funding pet adoptions: www.bissellpetfoundation.org/empty-the-shelters-donations/.

“Our shelter is full of cats and dogs waiting to be adopted this spring,” says Janet Testerman, CEO of the Young-Williams Animal Center. “We are grateful to the BISSELL Pet Foundation for being an outstanding and committed partner in the rescue efforts of shelters like ours across the country. We hope this Empty the Shelters event will ensure the animals in our shelter find the homes forever they deserve. The more adoptions we have, the more space we can provide for other stray and lost animals.

BPF will also honor foster-to-adopt cases that begin as foster families May 5-9 and are finalized up to one week after the event.

BPF urges families to do their research before May 5, as many participating organizations are still operating under restricted protocols and procedures.
