CNB Business: “Home for the Pawlidayz” Free Pet Adoptions This Weekend

Sayreville,New Jersey (PR MediaRelease) November 23, 2016, the online retailer known for its exceptional customer service, today announced it will work for a second year with Best Friends Animal Society to sponsor pet adoptions this holiday season. Beginning on Black Friday and continuing through Cyber Monday, visitors to Sammy’s Hope in Sayreville, New Jersey will have the opportunity to adopt a dog or cat through the “Pawlidayz” initiative FREE OF CHARGE.

Zappos has pledged to donate a total of $1.25 million to Best Friends Animal Society for these adoptions at more than 115 shelters and human organizations across the United States. “Zappos is excited to work with Best Friends Animal Society for a second year this holiday season,” said Steven Bautista, Karma Kommando at “Thousands of dogs and cats are in need of loving homes and we want to give all of our customers the ability to make a difference in their lives.”

Every day across the United States, 9,000 animals are euthanized simply because they don’t have a place to call home. It is Zappos’ and Best Friends’ goal to see 9,000 dogs and cats adopted between Friday, November 25 and Monday, November 28. During one of the busiest shopping times of the year, Zappos encourages customers to spread holiday cheer and take the time to make a difference in the life of an animal by providing a dog or cat with a forever home. Sammy’s Hope Animal Welfare and Adoption Center will participate in the initiative, allowing New Jersey families the opportunity to save a furry friend this holiday season.* Sammy’s Hope is an active partner in Best Friends No More Homeless Pets® Network which offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.

“We’re excited to partner with Zappos for the second year in a row on this holiday promotion,” said Gregory Castle, co-founder and CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “Every animal that finds a permanent loving home helps us to get one step closer to Save Them All.”

According to David Gaier, Director of Marketing of Sammy’s Hope, “We’re thrilled to have the support of Zappos and Best Friends Animal Society.  For four special days we’ll be able to offer adoptions of homeless animals at no charge to qualified families. Please visit us this weekend and take home the love of your life!”
