The latest two entries in this series are simple, short, and upbeat. Warning: They are followed by a picture with profane language, one that encapsulates why I started this series in the first place.

  1. The KY video would be “easy” to make – loved the changing names :). Keep the series coming – thank you!

  2. Thanks for sharing these! I confess, I tend not to look at adoption videos and simliar things, because they make me want to cut my wrists. I thought I was the only one and hid this shame.

    1. No! You’re not alone, Jen. People have been responding very positively to this series of videos, and they have been proven more effective than the ones that make you want to slit your wrists.

  3. So much to love about that last photo… it’s so true! I used to love that song from the commercials too – until it became associated with the most depressing commercial in the history of the world.

  4. Thank you all for your encouragement! I promise to keep ’em coming. It’s a lot of fun looking for them and I’ve learned how to eliminate the depressing ones at the first strains of sad music!

  6. Hi Y’all,

    My Human says she’s been missin’ something by skipping your post on pet adoption videos just ’cause she rarely watches video of any sort. Thanks for sharin’.

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
