Save Shirts for Strays
Organized by: Matthew Blizzard
What is Shirts for Strays? Shirts for Strays is an organization that was founded in order to help spread the word about animal homelessness. There are the approximately 17 million individuals who will be acquiring a pet within the next year, but remain undecided on where they will acquire their pet from. Some will be going to shelters while others will be headed to pet stores or even animal mills…our shirts are a personal way to advocate for animal adoption and sway these potential or undecided pet owners into seeking a rescue. Our goal is to have as many people talking about animal adoption as possible and to also make the public more aware of the benefits of pet ownership.
Who are our volunteers? Shirts for Strays is comprised of selfless stray saviors who donate much of their time to helping animals in need of a home. Currently we are using a technique called screen pressing for the creation of our shirts which is time consuming and limiting as we cannot always meet demand and we are looking at upgrading our equipment to a digital process which will be able to produce shirts at a much faster rate and save our stray saviors some time making shirts so that they can spend more time with their families and their own animal companions all while having a larger impact on animal adoption rates...we can not simply keep up with the demands and are looking at closing our facilities due to the time consuming process of screen pressing. As a result we have temporarily suspended our shirt sales pending new equipment and the success of this campaign.
Why donate to Shirts for Strays? Because you will be helping rescue animals by spreading the word, who would otherwise not have a chance. Approximately 2.7 million healthy and treatable pets are still losing their lives in shelters each year. Shirts for Strays is looking to grow and have a larger visual impact, get people who are on the fence to adopt or have never considered adoption before to make that visit to their local shelter and make a new family member for life or at the very least strike up a conversation about how great owning a rescue can be. So please help Shirts for Strays today.
ON BEHALF OF THE HOMELESS ANIMALS WHO YOU WILL BE HELPING FIND NEW HOMES, WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
