The Fwooper Foundation Wants to Know: Do You Want to Adopt a Pygmy Puff?
Who wouldn’t want to adopt one of those fluffy pink or purple puff balls of joy?
The Fwooper Foundation, an organization committed to using Harry Potter for animal rights activism, has a fun new campaign that is encouraging people to adopt cats and dogs – using Pygmy Puffs!
According to the press release:
The campaign asks the question ‘What would happen if Knockturn Alley breeders started breeding their own Pygmy Puffs for profit so quickly that it created a Pygmy Puff overpopulation crisis in the [w]izarding [w]orld?’ The campaign is meant to get the conversation started in the Harry Potter fandom about the overpopulation of cats and dogs we are facing in the real world.
The campaign is asking Potter fans to go to its website and pledge to only adopt animals from shelters to help stop this exploitation of animals. While there, fans can also learn more about Tom and Charlotte, the (absolutely adorable!) mascots for this campaign, whose stories reflect the sad reality many dogs and cats in our world face. You can also learn how you can help exploited animals in other ways. Over 100 fans have already made the pledge! But you’ll have to hurry to join them; the campaign only goes through January 2016!
