Meet My Shelter Pet: Mark & Mary Ann Behme

Meet My Shelter Pet is a video series featuring pet adopters and their loving shelter pets. Created by The Shelter Pet Project and funded by Halo Pet Foundation, the campaign encourages potential adopters to consider the shelter as the first place to find a new best friend.

This video features Mark and Mary Ann Behme whose family includes three shelter dogs, all of whom were adopted as seniors.

The videos are part of The Shelter Pet Project, a public service advertising (PSA) campaign that for four years has helped to positively change the perception of shelter pets, with euthanasia rates declining by 10 percent during the campaign’s time period.

Despite these gains, however, 2.7 million healthy and treatable pets are still losing their lives in shelters each year. The Shelter Pet Project’s goal is to bring that number down to zero.
