(DALLAS, TX); July 20, 2022 – As our nation’s shelters face unprecedented overcrowding, BISSELL Pet Foundation is doing its part to taking homeless pets from kennels to couches by sponsoring reduced adoption fees of $50 or less through July 31. The longest-ever Summer National “Empty the Shelters” event will be hosted in more than 250 shelters in 42 states, including SPCA of Texas.
The SPCA of Texas will be offering $25 adoptions on all adult dogs and cats at their Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas through July 31, 2022 for the summer Empty the Shelters event. To learn more about adoptions at the SPCA of Texas, please visit www.spca.org/adopt.

With the euthanasia of homeless dogs up 22% in just the first quarter of 2022 alone, we knew we had to act quickly to help at-risk pets,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “Empty the Shelters is the largest funded adoption event in the country, and by extending the event to three weeks, we can help meet the immediate need to save lives.”
The SPCA of Texas has participated in Empty the Shelters previously, adopting out 70 animals during the event from May 2-8, 2022.
“Partnering with BISSELL Pet Foundation allows us to find even more homes for animals in need, making their dreams of loving homes come true”, said Kelli Eaves, Director of Lifesaving Initiatives for the SPCA of Texas, “By adopting a pet from the SPCA of Texas, you’re not only saving their life, but also the lives of the pets that can take their place at the shelter.”
BISSELL Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelters” event is the largest funded adoption event in the country. With a goal of encouraging more families to choose adoption, this lifesaving effort has helped more than 96,000 pets find loving homes since 2016. “Empty the Shelters” is BISSELL Pet Foundation’s largest program, partnering with a total of 443 animal welfare organizations in 47 states and Canada to reduce adoption fees.
Adoption is a lifetime commitment. BISSELL Pet Foundation and the SPCA of Texas urge families to do their research about the pet they are interested in adopting, as well as adoption requirements.
