The pet-loving brands are teaming up so Pet Parents can live in the moment, not the mess this summer

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of pets were adopted — pets who brought comfort, companionship and calm during a chaotic time. As life begins to return to some normalcy, Pet Parents are juggling leaving their pets to return to work, coordinating pet care as they begin traveling again, and managing the costs of it all. To provide a little relief from the stresses and messes, BISSELL® is teaming up with another leading pet company, Wag!, to offer a helping hand this summer.

Through the "More Than Messes" sweepstakes, five Pet Parents will win everything they need to help care for their pet, including a suite of BISSELL floor and air care products designed specifically for homes with pets, $2,000 to help cover the average annual cost of a pet*, and a year of Wag! pet care services**. In addition, 45 Pet Parents will receive two BISSELL products and a $30 Wag! gift certificate.

"Pet adoption boomed over the last year as people sought out the unconditional love that pets provide," said Theresa Junkunc, director of marketing at BISSELL Homecare, Inc. "That's why we're speaking directly to Pet Parents this year as their schedules return to normal, to help them manage everything from cleaning up pet hair to finding pet care. We hope we can ease the load so they can spend more quality time with their furry best friends."

Since March 2020, Wag! has experienced a more than 2x increase in new pets joining the platform, and Pet Caregivers have been diligently meeting the needs of Pet Parents and their beloved pets. As part of the BISSELL and Wag! partnership, the brands will also recognize 50 Pet Caregivers on the Wag! Platform and provide them with their very own BISSELL products to thank them for their efforts and dedication to pets and Pet Parents in every state.

"Pets played an invaluable role in helping people cope with the pandemic, and over 96% of people shared with us that their pets improved their mental health during this time," said Dylan Allread, chief operating officer at Wag!. "It takes a community to care for our pets, so we're excited to partner with BISSELL — a likeminded company dedicated to supporting Pet Parents — to thank the Pet Caregivers who have gone above and beyond to ensure our furry family members received the highest level of care and attention in the last year."

To enter for a chance to win, Pet Parents can visit between Tuesday, July 13 and Tuesday, July 27 to share the moments with their pets that make the messes worthwhile. Further program details, prize information, terms and conditions can be found on the website, and all pet lovers can follow along with BISSELL and Wag! by searching #WeArePetParents on social media.
