The Bissell Pet Foundation will award $2,500 to the Catoosa Citizens for Animal Care (CCAC) to support their spay/neuter efforts. Funds will provide at least 83 low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats.
“With literally millions of homeless pets euthanized every year in the U.S., we focus on funding programs that will do the most to change this heartbreaking outcome,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of the foundation. “It brings me and my team so much joy to know we are helping to save the lives of thousands of animals through these grant awards.”
Bissell Pet Foundation 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 $1.8 million in support to organizations like CCAC.
CCAC was created to improve animal care awareness in Catoosa County, Georgia. Their mission is to reduce the number of adoptable animals euthanized at the county shelter and promote the humane treatment of animals through responsible pet ownership. By partnering with the foundation, CCAC hopes to prevent animal overpopulation.
