This Animal Shelter is Encouraging Adoptions With 'Doggy Sleepovers'
If you need an excuse to ditch your Saturday night plans so you can relax at home instead, we have the perfect suggestion: Host a dog sleepover with these shelter animals.
The LifeLine Animal Project, which operates two clinics and a shelter in Atlanta now offers a "pajama party" with their dogs, according to Buzzfeed. Similar to the organization's "Dog for a Day" program, these overnight visits give families the chance to get to know the dogs better before adoption. It's also a great opportunity for the pups to get out of the shelter, even if it's only for a night.
A pit bull at the shelter named Paul Anka was the pajama party's first success story. The sweet pooch had been in the shelter for nine months when the organization created this fun video promoting a doggy sleepover with him. He was an instant hit with Facebook fans.
"Paul was a great sport for his photo and video shoot and loved his pajamas," said Karen Hirsch, the shelter's public relations director. "We received a lot of interest around the sleepover with Paul."
The family who hosted Paul loved him so much that they adopted him the next day. "It helps people get to know a dog better," Karen said. "In Paul's case, his new family had been hesitant to adopt a pit bull, but when they had him overnight, all their hesitation went right out the window."
The organization now hopes to replicate Paul's success with more pooch pajama parties.
