Cat season is here! This means that throughout the month of June, the focus is on cats, many of whom will enter shelters across the United States in the late spring and early summer. These animals will join the estimated 6-8 million cats and dogs that will enter shelters this year and who need our help to find a home.
The Shelter Pet Project—a collaborative effort between The Humane Society of the United States, Maddie’s Fund® and the leading producer of public service advertising (PSA) campaigns, The Ad Council—aims to help shelter animals find loving homes. The Shelter Pet Project is celebrating Adopt-a-Cat Month with our radio, TV, out-of-home and interactive PSAs that will melt your heart. The PSAs encourage viewers to interact with real shelter pets, highlighting that the only way to find out how amazing shelter pets really are is to meet one.
So, come “meet” Smokey Joe, Meow Man and their other feline friends as they show off their winning personalities:
Every year, an estimated 2.7 million healthy and treatable shelter cats and dogs need our help to find a home.
You can also recreate the experience of playing with a real-life cat or dog at our new interactive experience: theshelterpetproject.org/meet. Just pick the animal you want to get to know, and you’ll see them run, purr, jump and play.
