Introducing Shelby and the “Why Not Me?” Campaign

Washington’s Pawsitive Alliance and the Dugan Foundation are excited to be collaborating on the new “Why Not Me?” campaign to help long-term homeless pets. The “Why Not Me?” campaign’s goal is to bring more attention to dogs and cats in Washington who have been homeless for months, some even years, to help them find their forever homes.

Shelby, pictured here, is one of the “Why Not Me?” pets who is searching for her forever home. Shelby is an adorable Dalmatian blend who has been at Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) for nearly a year!

Shelby was found in an abandoned home and was terribly sick, but thanks to the care she has received at the shelter she is now healthy. Shelby is described as the “Super Pup” from the staff at RASKC; she is great with kids, cats and other dogs and is ready to make a lucky family complete. Anyone interested in adopting Shelby should contact RASKC at 206.296.0100.

Pawsitive Alliance and the Dugan Foundation work closely with shelters and rescues across Washington. They know there are many amazing pets like Shelby who have been homeless for months, and this is why they created the “Why Not Me?” campaign. The program is  assisted by photographers and writers who are volunteering their time and talent to help these wonderful pets and bring renewed attention to their unique beauty. The campaign  has helped 25 long term homeless cats and dogs from eight shelter and rescue partners.

And, don’t miss Pawsitive Alliance’s fourth annual Statewide Shelter Open House Event, Saturday, October 3, 2015. The Shelter Open House event is hosted by Pawsitive Alliance to promote and highlight the work that Washington animal shelters are doing on behalf of animals in need. The goal is to help them grow their adopter, donor and volunteer bases and to raise awareness of the amazing animals in their care to help them find their forever homes and put an end to pet homelessness.
