Sugar’s BFF cats Winston and Maynard are both adopted cats. We recently shared 7 Reasons Why Cats Make Great Pets To Adopt.
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.
Are you looking for a pet cat to be part of your family? Consider adopting a shelter cat. June marks a particularly active time for shelters and rescue groups, as it’s the peak of kitten season, when thousands of newborn homeless kittens join other cats available for adoption across the United States. 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.
The creators of Garfield and Odie created new PSA’s video and ads for The Shelter Pet Project. These PSA’s are used as a reminder that there are thousands of amazing shelter pets ready to meet their forever home. These videos and other ads help break down misconceptions surrounding shelter pets and spread the word that pets in shelters are wonderful and loveable.
