Last week on my other blog, ForeverHomeWanted.com, I posted a Press Release entitled “Pet Adoptions Rise, Shelter Deaths Fall As Ad Council Launches Second Wave of Historic Pet Adoption Campaign. I think we can all agree that Shelter Deaths Falling and Pet Adoptions Rising is a great thing. As you know, six of us here were adopted and rescued from Shelter life.
Really friends, the thrust of this campaign is two-fold. First, to get humans to realize that adopting a shelter or rescued pet is way better than buying one (The Shelter Pet Project), and second, a person is the best thing to happen to a shelter pet, so be that person and adopt! It really is a simple concept, I just wish it were easier to implement.
Help spread this important word by blogging about the importance of adopting shelter animals, if you are on Facebook you can follow the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook, you can Follow ShelterPets on Twitter, and you can Subscribe to the Shelter Pet Project’s You Tube Channel. All of these things will help keep this important topic front and center, and will help save more lives.
As always, remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
Pet Adoptions Rising ? Hooray !!!! This is so good news !!! I hope it happens all around the world !!! Huge Purrs for that !
Thanks for the news Brain, I will check it out. Love this kind of project : )
We sure will post about the shelter animals. That is such a good idea to keep reminding people. Thanks for all this info. Hope all of you have a great day.
I will be blogging about this soon… Great idea.
A very good message here today! I am going to be taking some goodies to the SPCA soon. Rescued animals make the best friends!
That is fantastic news! I’m on my way to “like” on Facebook right now.
You are wise and wonderful lovely Brian!! Hugs to you and your lovely sisters Sascha, Gracie, Zoe, Dolly and Precious!!
Yay for all these wonderful people adopting pets! Take care
It’s a very important message Brian!!! We think shelter cats are the best 🙂
Excellent message, Brian. We respect that some people prefer to go to breeders and buy a purebred cat, but our mom never would do that. Adoption and rescue is the way to go!
LOVE IT!!! And for fun, you have to watch some of their ads – so creative!
What wonderful news. If only all folk would adopt instead of going to breeders ~ then all kitties could have a chance of a forever home.
Thank yoo for coming to my gotcha celebration! Alfie xx
We agree that a shelter cat is the best option!
Since both Kozmo and mes was from shelters wes really believes in this!
Thanks for your informative post!
The Woman says she finally got around to a shelter cat because one didn’t just end up on her door step after Georgia died–normally she’s beaten to the punch by a stray cat!
We couldn’t agree with you more, Brian! We wish humans would consider a shelter cat first. Me and Ernie were both shelter cats. Zoey was a stray, but she coulda just as easily been a shelter cat. Our mom thinks shelter cats make the best companions because they are so darn grateful to get out of the shelter and into a happy home!!
This is wonderful news! Thank you for all of the good work that you do.

go for it Brian.. we support you! Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx
That is good news, and an awesome message, Brian! We agree … shelter cats are the best. 🙂
That is awesome news Brian and mom and will help.
All five of us were in need of a home – now we have a home and couldn’t be happier. Three of us were adopted as seniors…..and we’re still seniors!
Hi Brian! I want to wish you and all your siblings a very happy Thanksgiving holiday! And by the way… don’t let the ‘Dogs’ in Cars title fool you — I’d LOVE to see pics of you all in a car! Teehee! 😉
Woofs & hugs, <3

This is a very impawtant message Brian and you are so right.
That is great news that adoptions are rising and shelter deaths falling.
Excellent post pal. I’ll have to do that one day very soon.
This is a great post. We wish more people would adopt from shelters. It irks me when people question the intelligence of an animal based on their breed (as a retort to being asked to adopt from a shelter as opposed to buying a pet). *dumb*
