The Humane Society of Silicon Valley has appealed to members of society to adopted shelter dogs for the holidays. The shelter posed the question “What could be better than a home for the holidays”. Statistics show that certain dogs are more likely to get adopted, so to tackle this issue the shelter has organized an adorable holiday themed photoshoot using dogs who are likely to get left behind.
“Pits and chihuahuas tend to be the hardest dogs to adopt out so we try to draw a little extra attention to them,” Finnegan Dowling, the social media manager at HSSV, told The Dodo.
