ANDERSON, Indiana – The Pet Pardons organization released an urgent bulletin Wednesday asking the public for their help in finding a home for a four-year-old male Domestic Shorthair cat named Petey who has three days left to live after was surrendered into the care of the Animal Protection League because his owners could no longer afford to care for him.
Petey is the kind of cat that simply loves to hang out. If you’re sitting on the couch, he’s right there watching TV with you, if you’re typing out an email to the family, he’s going to sit down and do your spellcheck for you and when it’s time to go to bed, Petey is going to make sure you’ve got someone protecting your feet all night. It’s his thing, it’s what he does. With all the services he provides for free, it’s a wonder that his previous owners couldn’t find a little bit of extra pocket change a month to keep Petey in their home. Their loss is going to be your gain.
Members of the Pet Pardons community are given daily Facebook bulletins and updates, allowing them to share the stories of pets in need or even take direct action to adopt or donate money to save the life of the pet. The reasons for how these animals end up in shelters are as numerous as the reasons why there are so many dedicated volunteers working hard every day to save innocent lives.The Pet Pardons Facebook application has been responsible for the successful adoption of over 5,000 pets since its launch in December of 2010 and has amassed over 170,000 followers on Facebook who are ready to help advocate for an animal in need at a moment’s notice.
Pet Pardons allows its members to help pets by clicking the “Advocate” button on each pet’s profile, which places the pet’s bulletin on the user’s wall, allowing others to see the pet and advocate for it. As the number of shares increases, so do the chances of the pet being viewed by someone who can help or adopt.
Petey is such a cool guy that he has had volunteers snapping photos of him hanging out in his cage, bringing him food and water every day and best of all his volunteers have have amazing things to write about him on his Pet Pardons profile.
Petey is a big, handsome kitty with stunning blue-green eyes. He has a calm, wonderfully, sweet personality. He would love to be a paper weight in your home office or warming the bed for you! He’s such a thoughtful kitty. Visit Petey today! Petey’s family could no longer afford to take care of him and brought him to the shelter. He is a good boy.
As far as everyone is concerned, Petey is the perfect cat for a family or an individual who wants a full time hang out buddy. How anyone could have just left their best friend at a shelter the way Petey’s owners did is a complete mystery.
Pet Pardons educates the public about pet overpopulation, focusing on the importance of adoption and spay/neuter. By shining a light on the reality for shelter pets, people are becoming aware of the problem, and therefore, getting involved in the solution. As each amazing pet is featured, users are able to see their faces, connect with their stories, and advocate to save their lives.
Pet and animal advocacy can sometimes be a very emotional process. Volunteers place animals into the Pet Pardons application in hopes that they will be adopted into loving homes, not so that the shelters will be targeted and harassed. Please help the pets by not engaging in this type of behavior, as it hurts them far more than it helps them.
Petey currently has 704 advocates on the Pet Pardons application, and could use a lot more, especially those who would be willing to supply transportation to a new forever home if needed.
