Rescue Moms: Show Off Your ‘Kids’!

Posted on by PETA

Every mom knows that families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re helping the kids with their homework (and you thought you’d never need to use algebra again!), taking the pup you adopted from a shelter for a walk or scooping out the litterbox of the kitty you rescued from the street, you’re a mom, and you should be proud of your “kids”!

We want you to show off your furry four-legged animals adopted from an animal shelter or the street and tell everyone that you’re one #ProudRescueMom (because just look at those faces – they’re enough to make any mother proud!).

Post a photo of you with your rescued animal companion on social media and let everyone know that you’re a #ProudRescueMom.

1. Create a cute “rescue mom” sign.
Write, “This is (insert animal’s name), and I’m (his/her) #ProudRescueMom“, on a piece of paper. Make it as creative and personal as you’d like – the sky is the limit!

2. Indulge in a mini photo shoot.
Snap a photo of you with your companion animal next to the sign. If you’re not one for selfies or your animal companion isn’t one to sit still, use an adorable photo that’s already on your camera or phone.

3. Tell the world that you’re a #ProudRescueMom on social media!
For example, on Twitter tweet the photo and tag @PETAIndia with #ProudRescueMom or #AdoptDontShop with some words about how your companion animal came into your life, such as “Adopted from a shelter!” or “Found under a car and now in our loving home !”.
We can’t wait to see your family!

If you’re considering welcoming a new furry friend into your family, please remember to adopt from a shelter or the streets, rather than buying from a pet store or breeder. Adopt – don’t shop!
