HOUSTON – Several Houston-area shelters are operating at critical capacities and are in urgent need of homes for their furry charges.
This month, animal shelters and welfare organizations are reducing adoption fees as part of BISSELL Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelters event, a nationwide initiative to help alleviate strained shelters. The adoption event runs July 11 through July 31. During the event, BISSELL Pet Foundation will sponsor reduced adoption fees for $50 or less.
Below is a list of Houston-area shelters participating. Not every shelter is participating for the full event. Potential adopters are encouraged to visit the “Empty the Shelters” website to find the nearest participating shelter and confirm their adoption day details.
