I’m always thrilled when I learn that people have chosen to adopt when adding a furry friend to the family. With hundreds of thousands of adoptables on Petfinder alone, the need for loving homes is great. So, I was even more delighted to learn that one of our favorite morning personalities, Today Show‘s Hoda Kotb, was looking at Petfinder for the perfect match.
After finding out about Hoda’s lifestyle and what type of dog might fit best in her home, the search was on to find a select group that might be her new sidekick (don’t worry, Kathie Lee’s not going anywhere!). Today we were joined on a sunny day in New York City’s Central Park by 10 pup candidates from several of our member rescues: Animal Haven, PAWS Chicago, Phoenix Animal Rescue and Shih Tzu and Furbaby Rescue. With Kathie Lee (a proud mom to three pups) as Hoda’s guide, everyone was in good hands…literally.
To find out who Hoda found kismet with, tune into the Today Show Wednesday morning in the 10am ET hour. In addition to meeting Hoda’s new fur-ever friend, you’ll also meet all the adoptables (nine of whom are still looking for families):
- Baker (Animal Haven in New York, NY)
- Cinnamon (Phoenix Animal Rescue in Chester Springs, PA)
- Nutmeg (Shih Tzu and Furbaby Rescue in Crompond, NY)
- Scotland (Animal Haven in New York, NY)
- Bobbie Sue, Goldfish, Kevin, Orla, Reeves and Yaris (PAWS Chicago in Chicago, IL)
Congrats, Hoda, and thanks for spreading the message of pet adoption!
