This New 'Grown-Ass Adult' Dog Adoption Campaign Is Straight Fire

It's easy to convince people to adopt a puppy, like adopting people, people mostly want babies. However, puppies are the first to go at the shelters and rescues, and the poor adult and senior dogs are left there. And those dogs have just as much love inside. 

Animal Protective Association of Missouri (APA) had just come out with a recent, and brilliant, ad campaign. The posters and the hashtags #grownassadult and #adoptadult is educating people about the many advantages of adopting grown-up dogs! 

And there are so many advantages! If you're thinking about adopting a dog, we hope this campaign sticks with you and you consider adopting an adult.

"Get a dog who gets you. Adopt adult."

Need a date for Valentine's Day? How about a furr-ever love instead? In Lithuania, animal lovers have created an app, GetPet, inspired by the popular dating app Tinder. GetPet is like Tinder but for dogs in the shelter in need of a furr-ever home. Vaidas Gecevicius, one of the app's creators, takes about how when swiping right on the picture of the dog that melts your heart, "you can arrange a meeting with the dog — a date." Some of the app's features are similar to that of Tinder's, profile pics of the pup and if you scroll down, the information about each pup is revealed. You can also continue swiping left and a new profile will appear. The app currently just features dogs but they hope to add more pets soon! Read all about it at AP News!
