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.
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. Will you help us encourage pet adoption?
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.
Visit TheShelterPetProject.org, where as a prospective adopter, you can browse through a database of dogs and cats available for adoption in your area and learn more about misconceptions around shelter pet adoption as well as about the process of adopting a pet.
Did you adopt/rescue your dog or cat? Share in the comments how your shelter pet enhances your life, so that you can show people who may be hesitant to pick a shelter pet just how rewarding it is to adopt.
