CHEYENNE – After successfully placing nearly 23,000 pets in homes, BISSELL Pet Foundation is back to Empty the Shelters at 132 organizations in 26 states, including Cheyenne Animal Shelter.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, adopters will have a chance to bring a pet home from Cheyenne Animal Shelter for the reduced fee of $25 while BPF sponsors the remaining cost.

“Our shelter partners continue to give feedback that Empty the Shelters is saving lives in their area,” Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation, said in a news release. “Not only do thousands of pets find homes, but shelter and rescue organizations of all sizes collaborate to make the greatest impact possible for pets. These relationships continue long after the event ends.”

BPF’s Empty the Shelters program began in 2016 to capitalize on the foundation’s mission to find every pet a loving home. ETS aims to shed light on pet homelessness across the county and encourage families to adopt a pet and save a life.

All adoptable pets available during Empty the Shelters will be microchipped and spayed/neutered. BPF requires that all microchips must be registered to the adopter before they leave to increase the chance of pets reuniting with their owners, if lost. A microchip registration and license fee may apply – costs may vary by location.

Please be reminded that adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. If you’re not able to adopt, consider supporting BISSELL Pet Foundation’s lifesaving work at To date, BPF has impacted more than 200,000 pets through grant funding for adoption, spay/neuter, microchipping and foster care.
