There are hundreds …
… of thousands …
… of animals in open-admission shelters and foster homes across the country waiting for a loving home. But every time someone buys a cat or a dog from a breeder or a pet store instead of adopting one, an animal in a shelter or foster home loses his or her chance at finding a home.
Helping is easy: All you have to do is tell your friends and family that if they’re ready for the big responsibility of caring for a companion animal, they should ALWAYS ADOPT—and NEVER BUY from a pet store or breeder!
1. Tell everyone about your furry best friend by taking a photo of you and him or her with a sign that says, “He (or She) Rescued Me. Always Adopt, Never Buy. peta2.com.”
2. Upload the photo to your Instagram account and don’t forget to tag @officialpeta2 and add the following hashtags: #peta2life and #adoptdontshop.
Don’t have a companion animal? No worries! Take a photo with a sign that says, “Kind People Don’t Buy Animals. Adopt, Never Buy. peta2.com.”
Take your photo and submit it for points!
