Don’t Shop, Adopt!

Like other fellow pet bloggers, I received an email from the Nevada Humane Society, one of the country’s largest no-kill shelters. Given the somewhat dour stories that are associated with shelters, pet shops, and puppy mills this upbeat video seems like just the antidote.

Here’s the email request I received.

Hi Rod!

My name is Evan and I work with the Nevada Humane Society. I was wondering if you would consider posting a video we produced on your blog. It’s actually really funny – it’s an adoption spinoff of the famous JK Wedding Entrance Dance. Nevada Humane Society is one of the largest no kill shelters in the nation and as a result, they have a ton of animals in need of homes and we really hope this video will help them out.

Hope to hear from you soon.

    I have a lab and seeing this mad me think of him (who I adopted from a shelter when he was a 6 week old abandon case) and I cried my eyes out! Happy tears though! :) I love how people are realizing in this generation that animals are a big deal!

  • This is such a happy video- loved it! I'm with Kim, I laughed & cried too! YEAH COOPER! :)

    Love, love, love this (though I have no idea what the JK Wedding Entrance Dance is). I wonder if the shelter is somehow affiliated (financed by) Maddie's Fund, a wonderful but little known resource for pets. That picture of Maddie is a giveaway…

  • This was very cute! I include myself in the laughing and crying crowd, laughing because of the dancing and crying because of the animals saved. I congratulate the workers/volunteers at that Humane Society for stepping up and doing this video :)

    I laughed, I cried, and, if you think I'm being cliche or flip, I DARE you to watch this video without doing either. What a fantastic 4 minutes and 34 seconds… a wonderful way to start my day!

    There is a lot of good going on in no kill shelters. The shelter scene has changed a lot in the past decade. What we have to do is educate everyone about “Adopt, Don't Shop.” I still get shocked when I learn that people don't know about puppy mills. So glad to see another great shelter doing amazingly good work.
