The PSA is an animated addition to McDonnell’s Shelter Stories series – adoption-themed vignettes that he features in his Mutts strip throughout the year and published in a 2008 collection, Mutts Shelter Stories: Love. Guaranteed.
The video shown here is one of six PSAs that McDonnell – a huge adoption advocate and proud dad to Petfinder dog Amelie – created with animator Paul Fierlinger for The Shelter Pet Project. You can see all the PSAs on McDonnell’s blog.
They’re all great, but we opted to spotlight this one, featuring a “mature” pet, in honor of Adopt-A-Less Adoptable-Pet Week.
Do you know an original pet-adoption video that deserves to make our “best of” list? Leave a comment below!
