Wayside Waifs Hospital and Shelter decided to take matters into their own hands by creating a clever video to showcase their adorable felines.
There's no denying that dogs often get more love and attention than cats when it comes to adoptions. But one animal shelter in Kansas City, Wayside Waifs Hospital and Shelter, decided to take matters into its own hands by creating a clever video to showcase its adorable felines. The video, shared on the social media platform TikTok, asked shelter workers to recommend a cat based on its personality traits. This simple yet ingenious idea gave the cats a little more character than just a name and picture, and it worked wonders for the shelter's adoption rates.
The video went viral and racked up over a million views and 2,500 shares. Also, two of the shelter's cats were adopted in the process. It was an incredible success, and it's clear that the video struck a chord with animal lovers around the world. Casey Waugh, a spokesperson for Wayside Waifs, said that the idea for the video came from one of their feline care technicians. "What kind of animal likes people? What kind of animal would wanna snuggle with the other kittens?" they asked, and from there, the video was born.
The response to the video was overwhelming, with people from all over the globe cheering on the shelter for their innovative approach to cat adoptions. Commenters from the Philippines, Brazil, and the UK (among other places) showed their support for the shelter's efforts. Erin says, "Tubs sleeping on the exercise equipment is my kind of vibe."
TatumH11, says "The way Triva immediately starts yelling that man is definitely correct." Another user, Whitney, says "I love this. It's a cute little advertisement where you get to show off all these lovely kitties😻"
The Wayside Waifs Hospital and Shelter's video is a shining example of how creativity and innovation can make a real difference in the lives of animals. By highlighting each cat's unique personality, they managed to give their feline residents the attention and love they deserved. It is the power of social media to bring people together and make positive change. The Wayside Waifs Hospital and Shelter's video is proof that a little creativity and ingenuity can go a long way in making the world a better place for our furry friends.
