It’s a good day to Adopt a Shelter pet today… as shelters across the nation put down their euthanasia apparatus for Just One Day and have pledged to focus on ADOPTIONS instead…When shelters partner with the community, amazing things happen.
The level of success that shelters are experiencing is in direct proportion to the level of effort put in. Those shelters that heavily marketed and hosted Just One Day events are reporting that animals are being adopted in droves. Some shelters are completely empty. Every available animal was adopted. Other shelters are having more modest results. But there is a central lesson here: When you engage and partner with the public, when shelters work with rescue groups, when they reach out to the media, and when they make it easy for people to do the right thing, great things happen. They empty the shelter the good way.
Florence AL reports “amazing results” including a $1,000 donation. Morristown TN says they’ve done “huge” numbers of adoptions. Greensville SC reports 78 animals went home. Another shelter reports 94 dogs and 37 cats saved.
