Dear dads, we know you love your furry kids, and they love you too! If they could, they would give you all kinds of gadgets, ties or barbecue tools to thank you for your belly pats and your wonderful ball throws.
So, on this Father’s Day, we would like you to introduce your dear little adoptees and tell everyone that you are a dad proud to have offered them a new life full of love.
To be able to appear on our Instagram account, post a photo of yourself with your adopted companion by following the simple steps below:
- Create a cool sign
Write « My name is [prénom de l’animal], and I was #SavedByMyDaddy « on a piece of paper. Be as creative and personal as you want.
- Treat yourself to a little photo session
Take a photo of yourself with your pet next to your sign. If you’re not the selfie type or your four-legged friend isn’t the type to sit still, use a photo that’s already in your camera and add the text of the first step afterwards.
- Tell the world that your pet has been #SavedBySonPapa
Instagram: Identify @peta_france when you post your photo, and be sure to include # SauvéParMonPapa and #AdoptDontBuy. Don’t forget to tell your friends why you are proud of your adopted pet!
Facebook : Publish the photo on your page and identify PETA with # SauvéParMonPapa and #AdoptDontBuy.
Twitter: Tweet the photo and tag @PETA_France with # SauvéParMonPapa and #AdoptDontBuy.
There are so many animals looking for a family
Cats and dogs depend on humans for their daily needs: food, water, shelter, veterinary care, affection etc. However, in France, thousands of animals have no families to care for them, not to mention a warm and cozy place to snuggle up at night. Many suffer and die on the street or are euthanized for lack of shelter space, the availability of a home ready to adopt them, or health or behavior problems that often result from abandonment.
The abandonment of animals is a complex problem but the solution is simple: animals from shelters or streets must be adopted instead of buying them from breeders and pet stores, and preventing more unwanted animals from being born by systematically sterilizing pets.
Indeed, people who do not sterilize their animals are also responsible for the overcrowding crisis that affects shelters. Some may think that letting their cat or dog have « just one litter » is not a big deal, but a single litter can quickly breed hundreds if not thousands of animals born to successive generations. Without sterilization, a dog and her offspring can breed 67,000 puppies in just six years. In seven years, a cat and its descendants can give birth to the astronomical number of 370,000 kittens!
Happy birthday to all fathers! And don’t forget: adopt and sterilize.
