As human beings, it is our responsibility to care for the animals that we own, as well as animals that do not have a permanent home. During the summer months, animal shelters can quickly become overwhelmed with the number of animals that are coming in needing shelter, food, and water. Unfortunately, overcrowding means that some of these animals will have to be put down, even though they may be an overall healthy animal. To reduce the number of animals that need to be put down, more companies around the United States have begun implementing animal welfare into their corporate philanthropy. Let’s look at some of the best animal welfare programs through corporate philanthropy. 

Bissell
While some people only know Bissell by their popular vacuums, but Bissell’s work in the community goes much deeper. As part of its commitment to the animals in their community, Bissell opened by the Bissell Pet Foundation in 2011 as a way to help improve animal welfare and has become known as a major advocate. The foundation has helped save over 87,000 animals by assisting various animal welfare organizations. Learn more about The Bissell Pet Foundation here.

Amazon Smile
It is not a secret that Amazon has been pushing a lot more focus on philanthropy and community service in recent years. As part of the expansion, the company giant created Amazon Smile. With Amazon Smile, you can choose to donate .5% of your purchase to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or you can choose an animal welfare organization that you support. Amazon’s philanthropic efforts have helped more companies incorporate a similar program for their customers. Learn More About Amazon Smile here.
