Shelter Pet Adoption Gets Another Boost

by Mary Haight on December 20, 2011

I just saw a tweet in passing from @Christie Keith with a link to this video, and mention of the low viewer numbers.  She’s right – while it has a thousand more views than when she shared it, it’s still under 3000!

The whole point of the positive advertising the Shelter Pet Project started is to get upbeat messages about pet adoption out there! Other advertisers are joining the call. Edie Jarolim noted that “real men love dogs” in her recent post, and this player gives football a different-from-that-other-guy association.

It’s a mistake to think that just because others have posted, that it’s old news. If there’s one thing I have learned, it takes all of us working together to get a message out: journalists, bloggers, activists, readers. There are few instances of overused content given the time people have to take in unplumbed depths of stories out there! If you haven’t seen it, enjoy, and pass it on=) [Corrected copy on this video as not being a shelter pet project – I was moving too fast too early, thanks Edie!]

Hey, Mary -- this is not a Shelter Pet Project video, though they've done some awesome ones. Here's an explanation of what this is: http://willmydoghateme.com/animal-welfare/real-me...

Thanks Edie - I changed the copy! Going too fast in the early morning hours - I saw the tweet at maybe 5 this morning - probably not a good idea for a nightowl like me. And my concerns about not having time to read everyone else\'s posts have proved my point, though it is a rough time of year to do everything and stay in balance too! Thanks for pointing this out!

Thanks for the correction! It's all good. I just wanted to give the folks at the Animal Protective Agency of Missouri the credit for creating the video -- and clue people in to my campaign to make Rodger Saffold the face of the NFL instead of Michael Vick. And the blooper film -- priceless!

That\'s great - and so is the blooper video! Director sounded miffed at all the hilarity!

P.S. Your mistake was a very natural one because Christie Keith's site quoted the Shelter Pet Project praising the PSA, but without making it clear it was not one of their own. I posted a clarification on her site too, giving credit to the APA of Missouri -- and directing folks to the other resources on my blog, including the St Louis Rams site. How cool is it that the NFL is running an animal welfare PSA??
