SHELTIt makes me a little sad that there are so many organizations dedicated to saving dogs and cats – because it shows the scale of the need. However, I am glad there are fine folks out there like The Shelter Pet Project that are committed to this important work.

About The Shelter Pet Project: “The Shelter Pet Project is the result of a collaborative effort between two leading animal welfare groups, The Humane Society of the United States and Maddie’s Fund, and the leading producer of public service advertising (PSA) campaigns, The Ad Council. Our goal is to make shelters the first place potential adopters turn when looking to get a new pet, ensuring that all healthy and treatable pets find loving homes. We do this by breaking down misconceptions surrounding shelter pets and communicating that ‘A person is the best thing to happen to a shelter pet. Be that person. Adopt.’”
