Weekend Event Results in 57 Pet Adoptions and $5,150 Thanks to Bissell Pet Foundation

From July 10th to July 12th, San Antonio Animal Care Services teamed up with the Bissell Pet Foundation to host the Empty the Shelters adoption event! With Bissell’s help, we were able to offer $15 dog adoptions and $5 cat adoptions. Our goal was to find homes for the pets in our care and make more space for the pets coming in after the 4th of July festivities.  

Events in general have been a little more difficult to coordinate during COVID. In order to keep our staff and the public safe, we have been open for adoptions by appointment only since mid-March, and this event was no exception. By the time Friday came along, our appointment time slots had already filled up! 

We are proud to report that we were able to adopt out 57 pets! Bissell's Pet Foundation contributed $100 per dog adoption and $50 per cat adoption. Thanks to their support, we were able to raise $5,150! Thank you to all of our adopters that made this possible. Our adoption event was so successful, we wanted to keep it going! We know that not everyone had a chance to make an appointment, so we are keeping our reduced adoption prices through the end of July!
