More than 3 million healthy and treatable pets are euthanized each year. Shelter animals are loving, loyal pets who find themselves there through no fault of their own. By dispelling myths and misconceptions, The Shelter Pet Project aims to make adoption the first choice when acquiring a new pet.
The Shelter Pet Project, sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, Maddie’s Fund, and the Ad Council, seeks to eliminate the stereotype that there’s something wrong with shelter pets and to make shelters the first choice and desired way for acquiring a companion animal.

Thank you for caring! We’re rescue kitties and we’re so very grateful to every single person who chooses to adopt a cat (or a dog, or a ferret, or a goat, or a horse, or a snake, or whatever kind of animal at all) from a shelter and give them a wonderful, loving “forever home.”
