June is Adopt-A-Cat Month, and Garfield and Odie have teamed up with The Shelter Pet Project to adoption of pets in shelters. In the video below, Garfield urges anyone wanting to add a pet to their family, to look at TheShelterPetProject.org to see pets available for adoption in their areas.
There are cats for every personality in shelters and rescue groups right now, and with each adoption, the number of healthy and treatable pets who lose their lives in shelters each year declines. Currently, about 2.4 million pets still need to find a home each year. Millions of people are looking to acquire a pet within the next year. If just a small percentage choose to adopt, we could end the euthanization of healthy and treatable pets across the U.S.
-The Shelter Pet Project
The Shelter Pet Project, a collaborative effort between The Humane Society of the United States, Maddie’s Fund®, and the Ad Council, showcases the unique bonds between shelter pets and their adoptive owners, and reminds people that there are thousands of amazing shelter pets ready to meet them. These videos and other ads help break down misconceptions surrounding shelter pets and spread the word that pets in shelters are wonderful and loveable.
