Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week

Hi Y’all,

Well, this is the 3rd day that I haven’t worn a collar.  You know what that means!  I didn’t get to go anywhere because my Humans were busy with people stuff…boring…

So, this afternoon when I saw Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Lula I thought wow…my humans wouldn’t take in a another big Chessie, cause there isn’t room for 2 of us when we travel.  I’d love a fulltime playmate, but…it’s nice to be an “only”.  So I thought…I’ll talk about Lula in my Journal!  So she can have a great place to live like I do!

This week is's , Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week, a week dedicated to
spotlighting those pets that are most often overlooked in shelters and rescues. It's all about getting
people to take a second glance -- and give a second chance -- to those pets whose only
crime is being a little older, the "wrong" color, or otherwise "less adoptable" -- but who
have just as much love to give. They sit in shelters for weeks, months, and even years waiting for their forever home. 

So BlogPaws Be the Change for Pets and I are taking up the cause for the next “Be the
Change Challenge”! We're spreading the word.

So who are these "less adoptable" pets? They are like Lula, senior or older pets, those with
health problems (even minor ones), victims of breed prejudice (like Pit Bulls), shy pets,
and those that need to be only pets.  But that's not all! A lot of people overlook black and
brindle dogs and cats as well. (Not convinced? Check Why Less Adoptable Pets Rule)
So next time you or a friend are looking to adopt, give these pets a second chance, a little
more time and you never know, a less adoptable pet might just be the purrr-fect pet
adoption for you!


  1. Great blog! And Lula looks like such a sweetheart. Don't you just want to take home all these wonderful dogs? I hope she finds her furever home really soon.

  2. She sure looks like a sweetheart! I think you need a friend ;)
