increases our exposure and community awareness
places our adoptable pets in front of someone who otherwise may not have come in seeking a pet. Started in 2009, Cats Around Town (CAT) is an innovative adoption program that places adoptable felines in local pet-loving retail stores. We recently celebrated our 500th adult cat adoption through this program, and in 2011 is accounted more than 20% of all of our adult cat adoptions! We have a team of volunteers that distribute flyers of our adoptable pets to local businesses.
We are definitely looking to increase the number of participating businesses. Mobile Adoptions Community Partnerships We partner with many local businesses to help promote our organization, raise funds and increase our brand awareness. Positioning Our advertising and promotional efforts for other Animal Humane programs help increase our brand saturation and position us as the premier pet adoption organization in our state.

Difficult to navigate Word-of-Mouth One of our most powerful tools is inspiring our community & patrons to recommend us to their social circles. Survey:

competition? Everyday people
Other shelters/rescues #1 way people acquire
pets is through a friend. Purebred illusion We are a visual culture, so many want
to choose pet based on looks, or breed. Like choosing a mate, that is not always the way to go. Breed type doesn't determine behavior. Dogs, like people are individuals. The better way to find a dog is based on his personality. People often think that shelters don't have any purebred pets. Not the case, Animal Humane frequently received purebred dogs and cats! While we are all working toward the common
goal of ending pet homelessness, the hard fact is
that other shelters and rescue groups are competition for our organization. A home for every pet! Public Misperception
& lack of education Stigma surrounding animal shelters
Prejudice toward certain animals and breeds
