October 27, 2021 (Vero Beach, Florida) – Thanks to collaborative efforts from regional  partners with BISSELL Pet Foundation, nearly 300 pets were evacuated from egregious  conditions in a large-scale animal cruelty case in West Helena, AR.  

After the closure of the facility, BISSELL Pet Foundation along with Animal Rescue Corps,  Cabot Animal Services, Humane Society of Tulsa, Nashville Humane Society and more safely  executed the evacuation and care of the pets including emergency efforts, health testing,  microchipping and other necessary efforts for the welfare of the pets.
