This weekend, May 20-22, 2022, Bounty Paper Towels is partnering with participating Best Friends Animal Society network partners to surprise new pet owners by helping to pick up adoption fees at shelters across the country.
That includes The Humane Society of Hobart (HSH), where adoption fees will be reduced to $30.00 for dogs over 30 lbs. and $30.00 for adult cats. All pets are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed, or neutered, and are parasite free, the announcement said. The Humane Society of Hobart in Hobart, Indiana is open to public daily from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and no appointment is needed for this weekend only. Available pets can be previewed at www.hshobart.org .
“Adopting from The Humane Society of Hobart will not only provide a homeless pet a loving home but bring joy and companionship to your family,” states Jenny Webber, Executive Director for HSH. “We are so grateful for Bounty and Best Friends for their support and partnership to get pets home where they belong!”
Currently, there are 100,000 more pets awaiting homes at shelters than last year due to recent problems such as staffing shortages, limited shelter hours, decreased volunteers, and reduced adoption events.
According to Jenny Webber, Executive Director for HSH, “Now more than ever, as we have seen an increase in the number of pets coming into our system, do we need our community of lifesavers behind us.” “We have over 250,000 owned pets in Lake County, and it is difficult for people to find housing that allows pets.” “Instability in our communities, staffing shortages, and inflation have made our work more challenging,” Webber said. “We are a tiny, but mighty shelter with the biggest heart, and we won’t give up on these pets.” “We owe our success to our community who has never given up on us either!”
For every pet Bounty helps get adopted, it can save two lives: the pet who goes home and the one who now has space to come to Humane Society of Hobart.
That’s why the promotion could not have come at a better time, according to Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “May is one of the highest intake months for animal shelters around the country. The sad truth is that shelters get overcrowded when pets aren’t adopted quickly enough and this can put lives at risk,” says Castle. “That’s why we’re grateful that Bounty wanted to quickly come to the rescue.”
“As every pet parent knows, pet messes are no ordinary messes, which is why you shouldn’t use an ordinary paper towel.” says Janette Yauch, Vice President, Bounty. “We are honored to join Best Friends Animal Society to help save the lives of pets while helping pet parents everywhere.”
