Bissell Foundation ~ Saving Lives One Transport at Time
BAYPATH PARTNERS WITH BISSELL PET FOUNDATION
All aboard! Over 90 homeless pets are one step closer to finding their loving forever homes, all thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation and their partner organizations. On Saturday, June 18th, these lucky cats and dogs made their way from Louisiana to countless shelters and rescues throughout the Northeast – including Baypath!
Two of Baypath’s own transport volunteers, Kim Walker and Susan Magri, met the Bissell plane in Connecticut to welcome the furry passengers. As you can see in the above photo of Kim unloading the plane, the Southern kitties and pups received the red-carpet treatment when they arrived!
Baypath welcomed Doogie Bowser, Lilah, Marley and Michelle were the four rescues from the Bissell Pet Foundation effort. All four were adopted out very shortly after arriving and they are well on their way to a new start in life.
Transporting animals from the South and other parts of the United States to the Northeast has become more challenging this year, as owner surrenders increase, adoptions decrease and shelters find themselves at full-capacity. Partnerships with outstanding organizations like the Bissell Pet Foundation are integral to Baypath’s mission to provide shelter, care, humane treatment and loving homes for stray or unwanted companion animals.
Bissell Pet Foundation’s commitment to ‘Saving Lives One Transport at a Time,” aligns with Baypath’s personalized approach to animal care and dedication to each animal’s health and wellness. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Bissell as well as other dedicated rescue partners across the country and internationally.
