Animal Shelter Uses Unique and Hilarious Tactic to Push Cat Adoption

It can be hard to get pets adopted, but it doesn’t hurt to use a little humor and hyperbole — like our new favorite shelter ad: “Kitty Kommercial.”

Our new hero, Paul Preston, puts on his best used-car salesman act to hawk cats for Atlanta’s Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters.

“We’ve got everything you could possibly find in a furry life companion,” Preston enthusiastically tells viewers, while his assistant attempts to be a human wind sock behind him (which is awesome, by the way).

“You like sleepy kitties? We’ve got the sleepiest kitties you’ve ever seen. You don’t like tails? No problem! Get a cat without one,” he says while holding a shelter cat with a stubby tail.

Preston’s sister, who’s a volunteer for Furkids, had the idea for the commercial and thought her funnyman of a brother would be perfect for enticing people to “come on down!” the Huffington Post reports.

So far, the ad has been a huge hit. Since it was posted on YouTube just before Christmas, “Kitty Kommercial” has garnered more than 1 million views.

Kudos for the kreativity, Furkids!
