My son, Josh, made a very sweet video about pet adoption for an NYC rescue group called Pillows for Paws©, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The mission of the RescueMen© campaign is to raise awareness to adopt, not shop for companion animals and showcase how wonderful and loving shelter/rescue animals can be.
Here is the link to the video on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RescueMenUSA/videos/576628049198223/
Donations to the campaign are used to bring essential material items needed on a monthly basis to NYC homeless cats, dogs, and rabbits at the city's animal shelters. This includes, beds, toys, treats, grooming and behavioral enrichment supplies.
Homeless animals come into a shelter having been abused, abandoned, or neglected, with most of them beyond frightened. Supporting their emotional stability is important to the overall well-being of an animal as they spend time in a traumatic shelter environment. Healthy, stimulated and relaxed shelter animals are more likely to be adopted. This is everyone’s goal!
