Shelter Pet Adoption


Meet Arnie. Today, Arnie is happy in his loving adopted home. But unfortunately, only 35 percent of dogs and 43 percent of cats in American homes were adopted from shelters and rescue groups. And for some, waiting becomes a matter of life and death. In fact, about 2.4 million healthy and treatable pets lose their lives in shelters each year. The Ad Council's Shelter Pet Project aims to help pets like Arnie find their forever homes. And you can make a life-saving difference. By playing public service advertisements (PSAs), you can help direct audiences to to learn valuable information about pet adoption. Visitors can also type in their zip codes and discover local cats and dogs waiting for them.
