Beginning in 2012, all funds raised through BISSELL Blocktail Party have been directed to BISSELL Pet Foundation to support animal welfare organizations in West Michigan and beyond. Funds raised will be allocated and administered by BPF through grants aimed at reducing the number of animals in shelters and rescues through pet adoption, spay/neuter programs and microchipping. To date, Blocktail alone has helped award nearly $2 million in grant funding thanks to our generous sponsors.
Since 2018, BPF has only funded organizations who microchip pets prior to adoption. BPF will not fund an organization that declaws cats prior to adoption. BISSELL Blocktail grants are by invitation only – eligibility requirements can be found here.
