The Shelter Pet Project, a collaboration between Maddie’s Fund, the US Humane Society and the Ad Council to promote the adoption of shelter and rescue pets, is hosting a ‘Celebrate Shelter Pets Day’ on Facebook on Nov. 30, 2010. Here’s the deal:
Nov. 30 is “Celebrate Shelter Pets Day” on Facebook!
Don’t you wish you could do something to help shelter pets find homes? Well, on Nov. 30, you can!
Every year, millions of people consider adopting shelter dogs or cats, but many don’t follow through because they wrongly assume there’s something wrong with shelter pets.
Those of us who share our lives with adopted and rescued pets know that’s not true. We know that shelters and rescue groups are full of great pets – dogs with one ear up and one ear down, senior dogs content to cuddle on the sofa and watch TV with you, and frisky young kittens with a passionate interest in your computer keyboard.
So on Nov. 30, we’re asking you to do something very, very simple: Post to Facebook telling the world about a great shelter pet who shares, or has shared, your life.
