‘Take a picture, it’ll last longer!’: Huntsville Animal Services kicks off selfie campaign
Published on March 17, 2023
Say cheese! Huntsville Animal Services staff members are collectively putting their best faces forward to encourage adoptions of homeless animals.
Each Monday and Wednesday, an Animal Services employee will post a selfie photo with one of the waggiest tails waiting to be adopted. The photo series wraps up on June 21, recognized as National Selfie Day.
“This is a great way to show how these pets interact with people,” said Animal Services Director Dr. Karen Sheppard. “A pet’s appearance only tells one side of the story – you can’t judge a book by its cover.”
Ahead of adopting or fostering a pet, the shelter offers the chance for one-on-one time with the dog or cat to make sure it’s a good match.
Each pet is spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated before leaving the shelter. The animals also come with a City license and a free bag of pet food.
