Most people will agree that puppies are adorable. The puppy breath, the snuggles, and wanting to play with you whenever you are willing, make puppies popular choices as pets. But that puppy stage will wear off eventually. Sadly, adult dogs have a much harder time getting adopted than puppies. In fact, some studies show the adoption rate to be as low as 25% for an adult dog. The Animal Protection Association of St. Louis decided to do something about it. Let’s take a look a cute campaign that they came up with to help showcase all that adult dogs have to offer.
“The Animal Protective Association of Missouri is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing people and pets together, advancing humane education and creating programs beneficial to the human/animal bond.” All pets that are adopted out through the APA are neutered/spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. All pets come with a 14-day wellness coverage, a leash and collar and a bag of Purina premium dog food.
The campaign is called The Grown-Ass PR campaign. It was designed to promote the benefits of having an adult dog versus a puppy. Let’s take a look at some of the adorable, yet informative posters that they came up with.
