San Diego, CA, September 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Help Save A Shelter Pet at San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.
A new booster t-shirt fundraising campaign launched last week featuring a statuesque picture of two pit bulls named Diesel and Ace. The proceeds of this t-shirt sale benefit the shelter pets at the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.
This campaign is one of many around the country that ordinary people, not employees of the shelter, are launching to help raise awareness of the staggering numbers of companion animals that enter shelters around the country every year. Allison Hill, executive chef in San Diego, and Jessica Fisher, owner of KuriousKitty.com of Escondido, CA, have teamed up to create this t-shirt design and campaign.
The t-shirt features Allison’s 2 pit bull’s, Diesel and Ace, who have their own Facebook page found at www.facebook.com/DieseltheGreatestPittbull. Jessica and Kurious Kitty run their own Facebook page featuring all of her companion animals that can be found at www.facebook.com/KuriousKittyRescue.
The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA has multiple locations in Southern California, and reports an amazing August with 683 companion animal adoptions! The goal in every shelter is to adopt as many animals as possible to loving, forever homes; so the number of pets adopted last month is inspiring. SDHS also provides the only “Humane Academy” in Southern California, providing training to law enforcement officers who will serve our communities as animal welfare investigators.
“We know we may not change the injustice brought upon these animals in our lifetime but clearly we can pave the way for others to be a part of the solution not the problem. I think collectively, through the power of social media, we can surely make our mark and send a positive message,” Allison tells us.
“It sometimes feels overwhelming knowing how many animals are abused, neglected and abandoned, but everyone can do something. Allison and I want to use what we have available now to help animals, and we both fully intend to continue to spread the word about animal advocacy. With the success of this shirt we will continue to do bigger and better things to help animals in need,” says Jessica.
T-shirts sell for only $25.00 and once 100 sales are reached, a whopping $907.00 will go to SDHS. Exceeding this goal will provide even more funding to SDHS. It may not sound like a large figure to you or me, but animal shelters and rescuers know how to make a dollar go a long way! This funding will help provide vetting, food and care for animals in the shelters, as well as advocating for spay and neuter and adoption of companion animals and much more.
You can provide much needed funding to the SDHS and get yourself a limited edition t-shirt while spreading a positive message on animal advocacy at www.booster.com/saveashelterpet.
