Tell the world about a great shelter pet who has shared your life and help pets like Dottie find a home.

Our partners at the Shelter Pet Project and Maddie’s Fund have designated Nov. 30 Celebrate Shelter Pets Day on Facebook and we hope you’ll help!

Here’s how the Shelter Pet Project describes it on their Facebook page:

Nov. 30 is “Celebrate Shelter Pets Day” on Facebook!
Don’t you wish you could do something to help shelter pets find homes? Well, on Nov. 30, you can!

Every year, millions of people consider adopting shelter dogs or cats, but many don’t follow through because they wrongly assume there’s something wrong with shelter pets.

Those of us who share our lives with adopted and rescued pets know that’s not true. We know that shelters and rescue groups are full of great pets – dogs with one ear up and one ear down, senior dogs content to cuddle on the sofa and watch TV with you, and frisky young kittens with a passionate interest in your computer keyboard.

So on Nov. 30, we’re asking you to do something very, very simple: Post to Facebook telling the world about a great shelter pet who shares, or has shared, your life:

  • Post the pet’s name and story.
  • Share your favorite memories.
  • Tell everyone the best story of all: How you met and fell in love.

You can post any way you like:

  • Make a status update.
  • Share a photo.
  • Link to a blog post or website about the pet.
  • Send a Tweet to your followers (suggested Tweet below!) – Just be sure to tag The Shelter Pet Project in your post, or come over and post it to our wall, or both.

And most importantly, spread the word:
In the weeks leading up to Nov. 30, share a link to this page with your pet-loving friends and family members.

Post this flyer at your shelters, pet supply stores, and dog parks.

If you’re on Twitter, here’s a Tweet you can use to let your followers know about our Celebration:
