Tip of the Week: Vested Interests
Nothing quite says “Adopt Me!” like, well, an “Adopt Me!” vest.
Store-bought or handmade, these vests look great on and act as conversation starters—check this one modeled at Asheville Humane Society’s offsite Mega Match-a-thon event earlier this spring. Says AHS President/CEO Katherine Shenar, “We love our ‘Adopt Me’ vests because they showcase the amazing dogs with a call-to-action message right on the side. Passersby definitely get the message, and it’s such an effective way to engage potential adopters.”
Where to get ‘em? We’ve seen some available for purchase online—just Google “adopt me vests for dogs” and see what comes up. If you’re lucky enough to have nifty, thrifty volunteers who can sew, check out this website for sewing instructions for making “Adopt Me” vests, materials needed and project costs.
Come back every Monday for tips we’ve gleaned and seen that may make your life a little easier, make a routine process go a little faster or deliver some extra comfort for the animals in your care.
