“Free the Shelters” is part of the national campaign sponsored by Prai Beauty aimed at breaking down the barriers to adoption at animal shelters across the country to make it easier for every dog, cat and pocket pet to find its forever home.
About 2.4 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs – about one every 13 seconds – are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Research has shown that removing adoption fees increases the number and speed of pet adoptions and reduces euthanasia. Furthermore, there are no significant differences in outcome between pets adopted with or without a fee.
If you are thinking of adopting a pet in the near future, make sure you visit the participating shelters this weekend. Not only will you help save a life by providing a forever home for an animal in need, you can save a few hard earned dollars to spend on food, toys and treats for your new pet!
