The Shelter Pet Project - Celebrating Adopt-a-Cat Month




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 their radio, TV, out-of-home and interactive PSAs that will melt your heart. 



Find a cat (or dog) available for adoption near you!


On the Shelter Pet Project website, there is a very handy search tool to help you find your new feline family member.   Below you can see I typed in my postal code and discovered dozens of cats available for adoption in my community and in the surrounding areas.   All looking for loving homes.  




How fun is this?!  You can recreate the experience of playing with a real-life cat or dog with this new interactive experience:  Just pick the animal you want to get to know, and you’ll see them run, purr, jump and play. 




There is another week left in June to celebrate Adopt-a-Cat month.  You can be part of the event by considering adding a cat (or two!) into your home.  They will love you for it.

Great post!
I agree with you M.K.Clinton that the interactive site is great since you can play with them. I had so much fun meeting Jules and the rest of the pets. I hope they will find their forever homes. I will share this post to my friends and families who are planning on adopting a pet and for them to spread the good news. Thank you for sharing this post to us.

Our shelter is always full too but the staff and volunteers work hard to find them loving homes. Thank goodness for the power of social media too.

I think the interactive site where you can play with the cats is a hoot! I have played with them and it is so fun to watch them react. Great post!

Thanks for sharing. Our local shelters are overflowing with kitties, as are many others around the world. I have been doing my best to share them in hopes to get some kitties adopted.
