The Regina Humane Society (RHS) is asking you to help make the holidays merry and bright for 170 homeless pets currently waiting to find their special someone in an adoption campaign aiming to send each one Home for the Holidays. The campaign was kicked off November 22 with the release of a special Home for the Holidays video.
The promotion is part of a province-wide initiative of the Saskatchewan Federation of Humane Societies, that hopes to not only have families adopt during the holiday season, but also to have those unable to adopt sponsor a homeless pets adoption so it can go home more easily and quickly.
What better gift to give a homeless animal than a caring family and a warm home? If an individual or family has carefully considered their decision and the responsibility of a new pet, the holidays can be an optimum time to adopt. Families are more likely to be off work or school during the holidays and have more time to spend with each other and with their new companion animal.
Pet Promise Certificates for a new companion animal are the perfect way to honour the holiday wishes of someone who has expressed a sustained interest in owning a pet and has the ability to care for it responsibly. Despite the common misconception of pets as gifts, research shows that pets acquired in this manner actually are less likely to be relinquished than pets acquired by the individual themselves. RHS Pet Promise Certificates can be easily downloaded here and printed for holiday gift-giving.
Every RHS adoption includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, tattoo, microchip, complimentary vet exam at an area clinic and 30 days of free pet insurance. Animals available for adoption can be viewed 24/7 here.
