Adopt a Cat and Make the World a Better Place

Adopt a Cat--The Shelter Pet Project banner

Every month should be “Adopt a Cat Month”!


Because here at we celebrate cats. . .

. . . Because there are so many beautiful and special cats who need families to love and to be loved. . . 

. . . Because it’s the right thing to do, to aid the helpless and the homeless. . . 

. . . Because “life”, whether human or furry, is important and deserves to be honored. . . 

. . . Because it’s a small thing you can do to make the world a better place.

The Shelter Pet Project

I received a letter from Amber Rollo, representing the Shelter Pet Project.  She discusses cat adoption. 

Intrigued by her message, I decided to share it with you. 

“Dear Cat,

Cat season is here!  According to the APPA, there are over 95 million owned cats in the United States today.  Of these cats, only 33 percent were adopted from a shelter or rescue group.  And, throughout the month of June, thousands of additional cats will enter shelters across the United States.

The Shelter Pet Project—a collaborative effort between The Humane Society of the United States, Maddies Fund®, and the leading producer of public service advertising (PSA) campaigns, the AdCouncil—aims to help shelter cats and dogs find loving homes.  This month, we’re 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!

You can also get to know Stetson, Maui, and Puma through the Shelter Pet Project’s new online experience:  These cats respond to the click of a mouse and to the touch of your finger, letting you recreate the experience of playing with a real-life, purring, pawing cat. . .

Thanks for considering this, and remember: ‘The only way to find out how amazing shelter pets really are . . . is to meet one.’
