Four star Royals players and their wives are hitting the streets of Kansas City with a message: visit Adopt-a-Pet.com to find your new furry friend.
Jamie and Alex Gordon, Ashley and Luke Hochevar, Catie and Jeff Francoeur, and Karrie and Mitch Maier have partnered with Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption web service, for a public service campaign in the greater Kansas City area starting September 12.
Kansas City residents will see a light-hearted outdoor and TV campaign featuring the Royals stars, their wives and their own furry friends promoting pet adoption at Adopt-a-pet.com. Funding for the billboards and PSAs was generously provided by Kansas City-based Bayer Animal Health.
“Pets in Kansas City’s animal shelters are getting a boost today, thanks to these heroes,” says Abbie Moore, Adopt-a-Pet.com executive director. “By speaking out about their support for pet adoption, and educating people that they can go to Adopt-a-Pet.com and see photos and information about pets in shelters, they’re truly making a difference in the lives of people and homeless pets.”
