The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast launched an innovative new program, dubbed Flat Out Adoptable, to help the shelter’s resident pets that have waited the longest for their forever home. With this program, the nonprofit humane society will provide a life-size cardboard cutout (flat) of an adoptable animal to a supporter, who will promote the pet by displaying it everywhere from a car window and front door to the workplace and more.
“Our goal is that these images will attract new potential adopters to come and see our featured pets,” said Sarah Fisher, communications manager of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast.
The animals featured in this program have been waiting for a home for extended periods of time and would benefit from additional exposure. New flats are chosen every quarter and will be given to participants on a first come, first served basis.
To kick off the program, the humane society will feature Little, an 8-year-old American Pit Bull Mix that weighs in at 87 pounds. Little loves the outdoors, exploring, and playing with toys. His strength matches his size, so he’s looking for a family who is experienced with large dogs. Little is looking for a home with a fenced yard where he can be the only animal in the home.
