Mission Pawsible: Have you ever adopted a dog?

At my job on Good Morning America  launched a sweeps series called Mission PAWsible: The GMA Doggie Adopt-a-thon taking place at various shelters coast to coast, from October 27th through November 22nd. For the launch we had 15 adoptable dogs in the studio. We had a doggie Halloween party with 5 dogs in costumes brought in by anchors and the rest dressed up in a pen. Our mission for the month is to get as many pups adopted as possible. There are over 50 participating shelters. We have been keeping a weekly tally of the adoptions at our participating shelters. The total count will be revealed at a finale event on November 22nd.

We even had celebrity hosts Jack and Jill, from the former Broadway play Finding Neverland to join the party! With the help of our friends at North Shore Animal League America and our theme of Halloween, we had Buffy the Vampire the Slayer and the fearsome Fang presented with Michael Strahan. They were a 8-week-old Labrador mix  and 10-week-old Chihuahua mix.

Then we had Amy Roach with Luna, an 8-week-old Hound mix who was dressed up in a hotdog outfit.

George Stephanopoulos was with the pooch, Casper who was another 10 week old hound mix and dressed up as a “RUFF-eree”.

And Ginger Zee had Shadow who was rocking a firefighter outfit and siblings with Fang.

We wanted to start this amazing adopt-a-thon because according to the ASPCA approximately 3.9 million dogs enter animal shelters nationwide every year and each year, approximately 1.2 million dogs are euthanized. Good News though, approximately 1.4 million dogs are adopted each year and we wanted to be a part of that adoption rate across America. So far, with all the 50 shelters we have partnered with across the  country  right now we are up to 1,776 dogs adopted! I encourage all of you to go out and adopt too to be part of the great cause using our hashtag #GMApawdoption
