  1. Please visit Bissell.com and click on Partners for Pets at the top of the page to find out about their program that helps animal shelters. When people make purchases of Bissell products, Bissell will donate 10% of the order to the shelter of the person’s choice. Then quarterly, Bissell gives out a $5,000 prize to a shelter. If the ECHS did this you should advertize it in the newspapers so that everyone will go register to do this and make their purchases of Bissell products on-line so that ECHS will get 10% of their purchases!!! I think it will be another great way to make money for the shelter!!!
