Talk about a feel good story for the holidays: the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region in Colorado recently reported that they’ve adopted out ALL of their available dogs in time for Christmas.
That means they have an empty kennel: not a dog in the house. And the staff couldn’t be happier. Check out the video below, which the shelter recently uploaded to their Facebook page.
The shelter achieved this milestone with a successful and aggressive marketing effort. This included waiving all adoption fees from December 18 – 31st, as well as lots of clever ads like this one advocating cat adoption.
“Although we’ve come close to adopting out all of our available dogs before, Monday was the first time we succeeded and had our dogs kennels completely empty!” Gretchen Pressley, the Humane Society community relations manager told ABC News.
Congratulations, staff and volunteers at Pikes Peak!
