About the Event

The Bissell Pet Foundation’s ultimate goal is to find every pet their forever home. This event takes place all across the country! Prospective pet parents have the opportunity to adopt a new family member for a reduced fee and Bissell Pet Foundation sponsors the remaining cost! It is such an honor to be apart of this special event!

Day 1 – May 5th 

Total Adoptions, 10!

Day one was already an amazing experience, thank you so much West Michigan! 

We had 10 adoptions including some of our most beloved FIV+ cats (more on our FIV+ cats in a later post). Our lucky cats are Iris, Fitz, Bob, Francesca, Checkers, Chess, Runt, Niko, Noodles, Dusty, and Gremlin! WOW! What a busy day! 


This event makes our entire F2F Volunteers’ dedication shine through. Our organization is run exclusively by volunteers. They are committed to every cat and person that comes into our shelter. Our dream is for every single one of  our cats to find a home they can call their own and find a family they can be with for the rest of their life. 


This event is especially appreciated in this difficult year. Budgets are tighter than ever. Having a reduced fee event allows families to experience the unconditional love of a cat. Did you know that cats are good for your heart health and reduce your anxiety? One study  found that over a 10 year period cat owners were 30% less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke. 


We are expecting Day 2 to be better than ever! We cannot wait to see you at the event and we cannot wait for you to meet your perfect match!

Day 2 – May 6th

Total Adoptions, 7!

Another amazing day for our kitties who are no longer orphans!  Pepper, Gremlin (posted about yesterday!), Snowball, Elmer, Priney, Hildi and Boomer! 


We know that taking on a new family member can be a stressful event but we are so thrilled that you chose to come to F2F and fell in love with your Pur-fect match. Words cannot even describe the feeling of watching a cat you have grown to love and adore leave with their forever family. To live their life just as you think all cats should live –  in a sunny spot, pampered, surrounded by people who love and adore them (as much or more) than they ever thought possible. It is such a joy.  Thank you West Michigan for yet another successful day of our Empty the Shelter event. We are at a loss for words. 


Onto Day 3!

Day 4 – May 8th 

Total Adoptions, 3!


What a busy bunch of volunteers we have. Running the show and getting adoptions done.  We had 3 adoptions on our 4th day, and sadly none on the last day.

We are thrilled regardless. We have a new record of 21 total adoptions! We couldn’t be happier with the families that our kitties went home to. We are grateful to the West Michigan community that came to us and trusted us to find their new family member.

We are so incredibly thankful for the BISSELL Pet Foundation and everything they do for homeless pets and shelters. 


Thank you, thank you, thank you!
