WOW now that was a very creative way to showcase the shelter and it's animals. I loved that doggies facial expression at the very end,so sweet. Thinking many shelters need to take notice and follow!!! Thanks for this Julie.

Way to freaking awesome! I also looked on this shelter's website to see how they have their animals listed that are up for adoption. I think the way they are listed is really cool. They have the animals picture & a neat description such as:

My name is BUDDY.

You will find me in room G.

I am a neutered male, brown tabby and white Domestic Shorthair.

I am currently available for adoption.

This is great!

Some people still have a bad perception of shelters; sad, dingy and upsetting, but this is the truth, happy workers, bright and clean with pets who just want you to come along and take them home.

Well done!

Beautiful video! Very well done!!! Love to see how they are promoting their (our) cats! CATS NEED HOMES TOO!!!!!!! Are they NO KILL? I cross post and pledge for animals from all shelters but only donate to NO KILL shelters. Being an SPCA I would love it be a NO KILL. - After reading issue about SPCA INT, I wish all national SPCAs become NO KILL and be the best shelters ever! The video is great!!!!!! Like it very much!!!!!! Good luck SPCA Wake county!

Yes they are no-kill. From their website: SPCA Wake is a no-kill animal shelter helping over 17,000 NC pets in need each year.

The video was very touching. I cried all the way through it. We all need to try to talk all animal shelters/rescues,etc into doing something cool like this.

Here's their wish list:

~ Kitten Food (Canned and Dry)*
~ Puppy Food (Dry)*
*For the health of our shelter pets, we need
high-quality brands like IAMS, Purina, and
ScienceDiet. The first ingredient should be
meat, not a filler or by-product.
~ Kitten Milk Replacer (KMR)*
*Name brands include PetAg KMR
~ Puppy Milk Replacer*
*Name brands include PetAg Esbilac
~ Scoopable Cat Litter
~ Paper Towels

Wow. That was one of the best videos Iíve ever seen. I could feel the love from here. Thank you to everyone who does what they can when they can all the time. Thanks for making the awesome video. I volunteer for an animal rescue organization in Australia called 4Paws animal rescue for cats and dogs. I would baby sit the cats, some mums and kittens some kittens, some a bit older too. I eventually adopted one myself and my friend adopted two who were hard to find homes for as they suffered P.T.S.D. Once, I found a stray very skinny cat in a garbage bin a couple of blocks away from my home. The next day I found she was pregnant and she led me to her kittens. All well and living in share accommodation house with teenagers that didnít understand the problems of sharing food with a huge big dog once a day. We bought the kittens off him them and there, all now have forever homes. So I understand what itís like and all that you do.

A great message!

Thanks. That was a neat idea.And all the animals were so cute. Here in our little Town at the end of summer, just before Labor Day, they drain the chlorine and the Shelter has a "Doggie Dip" Day. All the doggie in Town play contest and even a Kiddie pool, and a free towel and treats for a fee of $ 10.00 or whatever you can afford. My doggies had so much fun to raise money for the shelter.
