Cute Pet-Related Internet Show

November 27, 2006

Many of you might not know the challenges black-colored pets (cats and dogs) face in the shelter system. Today, I found a popular new internet show, called Cute with Chris, that features homeless pets from the Los Angeles area. This week, Chris has produced a wonderful piece highlighting "black dog syndrome." It’s funny, informative and well worth a watch. The "black dog syndrome" series runs in five segments (Nov. 27th – Dec. 4th). I encourage you to watch this excellent video series and pass the link along!

As a bonus, for all of you who foster animals, it’s a great way to educate potential adopters about how black pets can be just as wonderful as lighter-colored ones. It is truly funny, insightful, and a fresh new voice in the rescue community.
