For the second year, a generous donor will sponsor free pet adoptions from Black Friday through Cyber Monday
MURRAY, UTAH (Nov. 23, 2016) — Best Friends Animal Society is pleased to announce that a generous corporate donor will again sponsor pet adoptions this holiday season. Beginning on Black Friday, Nov. 25, and continuing through Cyber Monday, Nov. 28, adopters will have the opportunity to bring home a pet for free through the Pawlidayz initiative. The company has pledged to donate a total of $1.25 million to Best Friends Animal Society.
“Our goal is to clear our kennels and cages,” said Jamie Usry, HSU director of development. “We’re grateful to Best Friends for the opportunity to participate in this event and hope that we find loving homes for all of our pets.”
Every day across the United States, 9,000 animals are euthanized simply because they don’t have a place to call home. It is Best Friends’ goal to see 9,000 dogs and cats adopted during this campaign. During one of the busiest shopping times of the year, Best Friends and the Humane Society of Utah encourage customers to spread holiday cheer and take the time to make a difference in the life of an animal by providing a pet with a forever home. More than 115 shelters, rescues and humane organizations across the United States, including the Humane Society of Utah, will participate in the initiative, allowing adopters nationwide the opportunity to save a furry friend this holiday season. The Humane Society of Utah is an active partner in Best Friends No More Homeless Pets® Network which offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
“We’re excited to be a part of this wonderful holiday promotion for the second year in a row,” said Gregory Castle, co-founder and CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “Every animal that finds a permanent loving home helps us to get one step closer to Save Them All.”
