Comcast recently teamed up with Hallmark Channel’s Adoption Ever After pet adoption initiative to help Houston-area shelter pets find forever homes.
This “one-of-a-kind” adoption event took place Saturday, October 12, at the XFINITY Store on S. Mason Rd. The crowd gathered early to get a glimpse of their new fur besties and take pictures with local Hero Dog, Gus, who was there for a meet and greet opportunity. BARC Animal Shelter brought their #BARCMobile filled with cute adoptable pets and left with several of them being placed in new homes.
“It’s exciting because I’ve wanted a dog for a long time,” shared Jairon Dunn, whose mom brought him to adopt a pet for his birthday.” I’m glad I can do two things at one time, not only get a pet but save their life.”
The Adoption Ever After initiative is designed to educate the public about the many rewards of pet adoption and dismantle the common misconceptions about shelter animals.
“Comcast is committed to inspiring our customers, audiences, and employees to make a positive impact, so it makes sense to partner with the Hallmark Channel for such an important initiative,” shared Michael Bybee, External Communications Director – Comcast Houston Region.
