It is always good to have a heart warming animal story and I have one to share today.
This week, Comcast is celebrating National Animal shelter Appreciation Week.
According to a new release by Jacky Agudelo of Cataldi Public Relations;
...Each November, the human-animal bond is celebrated with National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. This week-long public awareness campaign (Nov. 7-13) is designed to honor and promote the important role shelters play in our communities and to increase awareness of animals waiting to be adopted at shelters across the nation. This year in Sacramento, Comcast’s series Pet Adoptions On Demand, has profiled hundreds of dogs and cats in local animal shelters, giving them the chance to have families to care for them.
Since Comcast launched Pet Adoptions On Demand in 2006, over 32,000 adoptable pets at over 100 shelters have been featured in video profiles. In Sacramento alone, 1,185 pets have been profiled in On Demand promotional videos to help them find nurturing homes, through Comcast’s On Demand services and in conjunction with the hard work of loving local animal shelters including Animal Rescue League, Cats About Town Society and Yuba County Sheriff's Animal Care Services...
Every month in 27 cities, Pet Adoptions On Demand airs up to 30 profiles of adoptable animals living in shelters, which Comcast Digital video customers can watch any time with the click of a remote. Each short video tells a prospective adoptee everything they need to know about their furry star – including its name, tag number, history and temperament. The series also lists phone numbers of local shelters so that individuals can call to find out more information, arrange an in-person visit or learn more about the shelter’s services..."
