    Shelter Pet Adoption -- Maui (Cat): 15

    TheShelterPetProject.org. Pet adoption is on the rise since the campaign's 2009 launch. Currently, 29% of dogs and 33% of cats in American homes were adopted from a shelter or rescue group, and encouraging statistics show that euthanasia of shelter pets is down 12% since 2009. However, 2.7 million healthy and treatable pets still need our help to find a home each year. Bringing that number all the way to zero is the goal of "The Shelter Pet Project" campaign, which aims to encourage millions of pet lovers to make shelters the first choice and desired way for acquiring companion animals. The current phase of the campaign focuses on the bond that exists between a person and their shelter pet and encourages potential adopters to adopt from shelters by explaining that, "The only way to find out how amazing shelter pets really are... is to meet one."
