Each year approximately 3-4 million pets are adopted from shelter and rescue groups, but 2.4 million healthy and treatable pets still need our help to find a home. Iâ€™m reaching out to you on behalf of The Shelter Pet Project, a collaborative effort between The Humane Society of the United States, Maddieâ€™s FundÂ®, and the Ad Council, to ask for your support.
The goal of The Shelter Pet Project is to make shelters and rescue groups the first place people turn when looking to get a new pet.
In celebration of â€œNational Adopt a Shelter Pet Dayâ€ on April 30 and to support â€œAdopt a Cat Monthâ€ in June, Lance Bass (a radio host and entertainer who first rose to fame as a member of NSYNC) has joined The Shelter Pet Project to share the love and joy that adopted pets bring to his life. Bass, his husband Michael Turchin, and their rescue dogs Lily, Foster and Dingo star in a â€œMeet My Shelter Petâ€ series video from The Shelter Pet Project. A second video, narrated by Bass, highlights the importance of shelter pet adoption and provides viewers with more information on how to adopt.
The Shelter Pet Project 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.
Millions of people are looking to acquire a pet within the next year. Will you help us show potential adopters that they can provide loving homes for shelter and rescue pets?
**As someone who volunteers with a local cat sanctuary, Spaymart, I know how important it is to spread the word about getting animals adopted, fundraisers, etc. That`s why when I got asked to help share the above information I didn`t hesitate. I am an animal lover all the way. While not everyone is meant to adopt a pet, everyone is capable of spreading the word. So many beautiful babies get euthanized from high kill shelters every day and together we can put an end to it. Don`t shop, adopt!
