Attention cat lovers! The Humane Society of Greater Miami is looking for "Cat Ambassadors" to help find homes for the shelter's felines.
The "Finding Love - Cat Ambassadors Program" aims to promote long-time cats at the shelter. Some have waited for homes for several years.
Potential ambassadors are encouraged to visit the Humane Society's website to select a cat they want to promote. The shelter offers suggestions on how to spread the word, such as placing promotional posters around your neighborhood, posting the cat's story on social media, or wearing a T-shirt (for a $10 donation) that shows off the cat.
The program is open to people of all ages who want to help the shelter's felines find a loving home. Nine-year-old Luna Balzano chose to sponsor a cat named Brandon. She wore a shirt with the cat's picture on it to school, and created a Facebook page to promote Brandon and other pets up for adoption.
“Brandon was with us for over three years when he finally got adopted,” says Yvette Jorge, Cat Kennel and Adoption Supervisor of the Humane Society of Greater Miami. “Thanks to Brandon’s ambassadors’ efforts, he finally found a loving home at the age of ten.”
