Pet Adoption Campaigns – Whales Agree, Rescue Dogs Using the Easy Button!

by Mary Haight on May 6, 2011

Pet adoption campaigns and Whales – what?? The Easy Button contest I’m judging suddenly doesn’t look so easy!  A few weeks ago I announced the pet adoption training contest “Dogs Get Rescued by the Easy Button” created and organized by trainer Chris Dignan at The Dog Saving Network.

Staples and US Bones are backing this great idea for pet adoption with prizes!  The training contest is based on using Staples Easy Button in your video. Spreading the message of pet adoption with clever videos by having trainers showing off their talents helps dogs help other dogs get adopted! What’s more fun for a contest than that?  After all the training and filming is over, you’ve created something that is going to live on, spreading the message of adoption, and having people take action on that message!

A more creative positive approach to pet adoption campaigns has already had an impact – we’ve seen it with the Shelter Pet Project, and a few others. And from Edie Jarolim’s plea in her popular series on this topic: “pet adoption videos that don’t make me want to kill myself”, it’s clear people want something more than to cry about about a problem.

The Easy Button animal training contest is open and underway – it’s all about putting the focus on pet adoption through creative video presentations! Each video must have the message to adopt. Okay, trainers and filmmakers, don’t get nervous – this video is not eligible to win.  But, wow, let it guide you into being a part of this project – it ‘s a beauty!

Ha! Beluga whales are such wonderful creatures! I wish I had one available for my video :). How do you get ahold of an easy button? Do you need to make one or can I just go to a store and pick it up... I will follow the links you posted and find out more. Thanks! Looks really easy to help make a difference.

This sounds like such a fantastic contest! Love the Beluga video - my second favourite animal! :-) I suspect this contest is US only. So I will watch from the sidelines and enjoy seeing what others come up with! Maybe I will think of making my own, just for kicks!

Great video. I have no skills in this area but I can't wait to see what others come up with. I'm going to pass this along. It's a great idea.
