GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF), supported in part by BISSELL Homecare, Inc., has awarded The Mosby Foundation with a grant of $5,000 to support subsidized low-cost spay/neuter services for the public.
Established in 2011 by Cathy Bissell, a devoted pet lover and advocate herself, BPF addresses the growing problem of displaced, unwanted and homeless pets by providing assistance to shelter and rescue programs, and by creating awareness about pet overpopulation, in the hopes of finding every pet a loving home.
Since its inception, the foundation has given more than $1.1 million in support to organizations like The Mosby Foundation.
"The Mosby Foundation is very grateful to The BISSELL Pet Foundation for its generous grant to support the expansion of our Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance Program,” said Jennifer Kirkland, board member, “This program is literally a lifesaver in the rural areas we serve by preventing unwanted litters of puppies from being surrendered to local shelters and pounds. Dog owners who cannot afford even low cost clinic prices reach out to us through this program to help them do the responsible thing and spay or neuter their pets. We couldn't do this important work without the support of generous foundations dedicated to animal welfare like The BISSELL Pet Foundation. We are thrilled to partner with them!"
