In an effort to reduce the homeless pet population, Bissell Pet Foundation will provide 10,564 cats and 4,176 dogs with spay/neuter procedures through its grant program. The purpose of this funding resonates with the nonprofit’s mission to find every pet a loving home, officials said in a statement.

“Bissell Pet Foundation is awarding $413,510 in spay/neuter funding to 68 animal welfare organizations across 28 states,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of Bissell Pet Foundation. “We’ve seen the impact spay/neuter makes in shelters and the communities where they reside. With this funding, 14,740 pets will be impacted to prevent further homelessness across the country.”

Typically, the foundation opens two grant cycles each year to its partner network of more than 5,000 shelters and rescues in all 50 states. Organizations apply for funding and the foundation allocates its support based on need, according to officials.
