Bissell Invites Animal Lovers to Help Homeless Pets Find Homes

Bissell Homecare, Inc, has been a long time supporter of pet adoption, is launching an online fundraising campaign to help homeless pets across the country find loving forever homes. From today through September, for each new fan that registers on Bissell’s Facebook page, the company will donate 50 cents to the Petfinder.com Foundation towards its goal of $50,000 in 2011.

The Petfinder.com Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that works with animal shelters and rescues across North America to make sure no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a home. Bissell’s $50,000 gift to the foundation will fund many shelters and rescue groups in need of help.

Research shows that many Americans don’t have pets because of the messes they make. According to Rich Sorota, senior vice president and general manager of global marketing and sales for Bissell, 38% of Americans not sharing their home with a pet would invite a pet in if the home clean-up was easier.
