Empty The Shelters 2022 Summer Adoption Event: Charlotte & Nationwide

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

HELP EMPTY CHARLOTTE'S SHELTERS THIS SUMMER

 

Summer 2022 Empty The Shelters EventThe Summer 2022 Empty the Shelters event sponsored by the Bissell Pet Foundation returns to Charlotte on July 11th and continues through July 31st. Empty the Shelters is a nationwide pet adoption initiative whose purpose is to help reduce the number of animals in shelters and rescues through pet adoption, spay and neuter programs, microchipping, and emergency support.

 

To-date, the Bissell Pet Foundation's efforts have resulted in almost 96,000+ adopted pets in 47 states and Canada through 512 participating partners. Thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation, adopters pay no more than $50 for a fur-ever friend that is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

 

During the Spring 2022 Empty the Shelters drive, approximately 6,035 cats and 7,469 dogs were adopted. Animal shelters typically become overcrowded in the summer months because of spring litters. The summer effort to empty the shelters is very important, as a result, to relieve the overcrowding. This summer,  some 32,000 deserving cats and dogs are waiting for you at more than 250 shelters in 42 states.

Save A Life By Adopting A Shelter Pet
 
It's estimated that 3.4 million cats and 3.9 million dogs enter shelters each year. Did you know that 1.5 million animals — some 860,000 cats and about 670,000 dogs — are euthanized each year due to overcrowding in shelters? Please help stop this senseless killing and adopt a shelter pet.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... rescues are simply the most grateful pets ever... somehow, they know they've been "rescued."

Hi Nina - I hope that the pets that wound up in the shelters this weekend all get reclaimed by their owners.

I absolutely love your support of all animals.  It is something a lot of people take lightly.  I can't tell you how many times I have heard someone say ... "it is just a dog".  Thanks for spreading kindness to animals.  Have a fabulous day!

Hi Nina- I wish I could!!!   BTW- I was telling my niece about fireworks, the Fourth of July, etc yesterday because they have a young dog. Last night, she texted me that she must have the only dog who is not afraid of fireworks. They watched him like a hawk.

Grant Schneider hi Grant... it's actually sad how many end up in shelters with no ID's and don't get recovered. I just can't wrap my own mind around something like that if I lost my boys.

Norma J. Elkins thanks, Norma... this cause is near and dear to my heart. My fur babies are family members, not "just a dog, or just a cat."

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... Bingo was very relaxed last night... he kept asking to go out and see what was going on... not that I let him. So there are two dogs we know of who don't seem to mind the noise.

I hope that the shelters truly will get emptied and every pet will be given a great place to call home!

Brian England hi Brian.... sadly, so many shelters do get "emptied" but are refilled in what seems like a nano-second. There seems to be no end in sight to stopping this epidemic of lost and abandoned animals.

Nina Hollander, Broker I love seeing how aggressive the Charlotte shelters are in finding homes for these animals. Ours NEVER offer financial incentives to adopt.

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... these kinds of events are subsidized by organizations like Bissell Pet Foundation so that our shelters can offer lower adoption fees.

Good to know Nina Hollander, Broker . I am going to pass that on to those who run our shelters, perhaps they did not know about this subsidizing.

Hi Nina,

This is such a worthwhile event, especially because so many pets leave home after the 4th of July.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri, between the lost pets and the spring litters those shelters fill up in a snap.

Nina wouldn't it be something if all the pets found a new loving home, and the shelter was emptied.

George Souto hi George... emptying out the shelters would totally make my day! We often come close during events like this, but sadly they get filled up again in a nanosecond.

Lynnea Miller hi Lynnea... one concern I have this year is that with inflation and the cost of pet food and supplies increasing that people will put off adopting.

Jul 06, 2022 02:38 PM
Lynnea Miller

That is a legitimate concern.  My daughter has 4 dogs and a cat.  The dogs are large breed (Great Danes) and eat a lot.  She feeds them very healthy, but also expensive food. I have never asked her what she spends each month on pet food (much less vet bills), but I am sure it is costly. But she loves her animals and takes good care of them.

Lynnea Miller hi Lynnea... I've had clients with Great Danes and they are not inexpensive to maintain. No doubt, those of us who already have our pets will take care of them... of more concern is whether people will take on new pets.
