Jack the Rescued Pup Dreams of Fame

Posted January 17, 2013 by Sean Horvath

This is Jack. He has but one dream: to become a Monopoly token!

That’s right! Monopoly wants to change one of its tokens, and we want the game to use a cute rescued pup like Jack here, instead of its current purebred “Scottie dog.” Wouldn’t that be adorable?! Plus, it would help show that mixed-breed dogs are just as lovable as purebred pups. I mean, when half of the 6 to 8 million animals who enter shelters EVERY YEAR are euthanized, it’s pretty ridic to purchase pups from breeders and pet stores, which add to dog-overpopulation problems just for some cash.

Fingers crossed that Monopoly sees the light and shows its love for mutts. Want to help homeless doggies? Pledge to adopt—don’t buy!

    Great idea!!
    Another suggestion…start a campaign to get toy companies like Lego and Playmobil to quit making zoo sets and instead make Animal Shelter sets where characters can go to adopt pets!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
