Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
It can be a leap into your arms, a friendly lick or a little nuzzle on your cheek. It’s not a Valentine’s Day greeting from a loved one, but the warm welcome a pet provides to his/her owner when they come home.
Adopt-a-Pet.com announced today the launch of “Best Welcome Home Ever,” a public service campaign intended to increase pet adoptions that will showcase all the silly, crazy and hilarious ways that pets greet their owners.
“Best Welcome Home Ever,” co-sponsored by Bayer HealthCare LLC, Animal Health Division’s resQ® microchip. http://www.petparents.com/show.aspx/products/resq invites pet owners to submit a video demonstrating the unique ways their pets greet them as they walk through the door. Interested pet owners can visit the “Best Welcome Home Ever” website at http://www.BestWelcomeHomeEver.com for details on how to submit their video.
BestWelcomeHomeEver.com will feature many heartwarming or clever submissions, including those already created by Adopt-a-Pet.com staff. Several entries will ultimately be edited into a public service announcement for television and Internet broadcast at a later date.
“Whether you’ve returned from a long day at work or just a short trip to the supermarket, the sheer joy that a pet gives his or her owner when they walk back through the door is just so affirming,” said David Meyer, Co-Founder of Adopt-a-Pet.com. “We hope that others find inspiration in these greetings and will look to their local shelter or rescue group to adopt their own furry welcoming committee into their lives.”
Adopt-a-Pet.com is North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, helping over 11,000 animal shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies advertise their homeless pets to adopters. Every month, Adopt-a-Pet.com displays photos and descriptions of adoptable pets to over 1.5 million people trying to adopt a pet. Funding for Adopt-a- Pet.com is provided by the passionate pet lovers at Nestlé Purina and Bayer HealthCare LLC, Animal Health Division.
