For the second year in a row, Zappos.Com has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to sponsor “Home for the Pawlidayz” in an effort to get pets out of shelter situations.
You love Zappos.com because they have amazing customer service and you love any organization that’s committed to saving shelter animals, so you can’t help but love “Home for the Pawlidayz,” a campaign co-sponsored by Zappos.com and Best Friends Animal Society that has pledged $1.25 million (yes, million!) dollars in pet adoption fees across the country.
While many are taking advantage of traditional holiday sales from Black Friday (November 25) through Cyber Monday (November 28), Zappos.com is happily working with Best Friends Animal Society to help waive pet adoption fees for those who adopt a cat or dog through the Pawlidayz campaign.
With over 9,000 animals a day (a DAY!) euthanized across the United States, Zappos and Best Friends recognizes the great need for shelter pets to find loving homes, and in an effort to help eliminate the burden that sometimes accompanies pet adoption fees, are enabling customers to have that opportunity through their campaign.
As this time of the year is one of the busiest shopping times, Zappos hopes that sponsoring free pet adoptions will give their customers the chance to spread holiday cheer and really make a difference in the life of a homeless dog or cat. Over 115 shelters, rescues and humane organizations across the country are participating this weekend, and Zappos.com makes it easy to find a furry friend for the ‘Pawlidayz’ with their location finder.
Animal-loving celebrities such as Cesar Millan and Wynonna Judd are going online to share this opportunity, and Millan says that when humans come together to help animals, amazing things can happen. We agree!
The waiving of adoption fees ends when Cyber Monday is over, so that means you still have time to get out there and change a special pet’s (and your!) life furever. You can follow the activity as the campaign hopes to rescue 9,000 animals this weekend, with the hashtag #Pawlidayz on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and if you bring a pet home for the Pawlidayz, you can share your pics with the same hashtags.
For more information and specific details, you can visit Zappos or Best Friends Animal Society and working together, we can save them all!
