The Shelter Pet Project – #AdoptPureLove

I saw this video as an ad produced by The Shelter Pet Project on YouTube and had to share.

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 celebrating the unique bond between every shelter pet and parent.

The Shelter Pet Project’s new #AdoptPureLove campaign celebrates the special qualities of shelter pets and the incredible bond between every shelter pet and parent. Through the stories of actresses Olivia Munn and Rachel Bloom, NFL player Logan Ryan and everyday people, #AdoptPureLove encourages audiences to adopt from shelters and rescue groups nationwide.

Hilarious Holiday Fest has gone to the dogs (And a cat)

You may see this video going around YouTube but it is hilarious to watch and the Behind The Scenes video of this as well. I can’t believe how well behaved so many dogs are with plates of food (and a TURKEY!) in front of them.

The personification is awesome as each dog (and the cat) has their own ‘personality’ and we can kind of relate that to our own experiences of family gatherings, large and small.

The best part of the video is that most of them are rescue dogs from the Humane Society of Utah.
