“Empty the Shelter” Adoption Event at Animal Care Services
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The longest-running national “Empty the Shelters” summer event will be held at more than 250 shelters in 42 states, including Corpus Christi Animal Care Services, July 11-31, 2022. While shelters in our countries are facing unprecedented overcrowding, BISSELL Pet Foundation is doing its part to bring homeless pets from kennels to couches by sponsoring reduced adoption fees during this three-week event.
Event calendar :
Adoption : Monday through Saturday, July 11 through July 31, 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., adoption fees will be waived for pets with age-appropriate vaccinations, microchips, and sterilization. These pets can be identified by the “green cuff” on the kennel information sheet. There will be a $25 adoption fee for other available animals.
Shampooch Dog Wash Day: Thursday, July 21, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., join Corpus Christi Animal Care Services by volunteering to pamper our shelter dogs with a bath! You don’t need to be a current volunteer, just a love for animals! Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and/or a parent/guardian must accompany volunteers aged 14-17.
The BISSELL Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelters” event is the largest funded adoption event in the nation. To encourage more families to choose adoption, this rescue effort has helped more than 96,000 pets find loving homes since 2016. “Empty the Shelters” is the largest program of the BISSELL Pet Foundation, in partnership with 443 animal welfare organizations in 47 states and Canada to reduce adoption costs. .
Adoption is a lifetime commitment. The BISSELL Pet Foundation and Corpus Christi Animal Care Services urge families to do their research on the animal they wish to adopt, as well as the terms of adoption.
