Macy Gray, a six-year-old pitbull mix, is July’s featured pet
TEMPE, Ariz. – Fulton Homes has partnered with 98KUPD’s John Holmberg to help valley animals find their fur-ever homes through its monthly ‘Pick of the Litter’ campaign. Found abandoned by Tempe police in April, Macy Gray has been chosen as July’s featured pick.
“As a company full of animal lovers, we are excited to see these animals being fostered and adopted with so many working from home right now,” says Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes. “We are encouraging others to continue this trend of emptying animal shelters around the valley.”
Even though in recent months there has been an increase in adoptions, Maricopa County still ranks second highest for stray animals in the United States. The largest Arizona shelter takes in about 17,000 animals every year. This campaign is critical for the advocacy of pet adoption and to combat pet homelessness.
Fulton Homes and 98KUPD feature the valley’s available furry friends from Lost Our Home Pet Rescue every week. John Holmberg builds anticipation and awareness for the program by teasing the week’s featured pick on-air Monday through Thursday, with a grand reveal of the chosen pet on Friday. Fulton Homes will then feature one pet each month to build awareness around the campaign.
Macy Gray, a six-year-old pitbull mix, was found abandoned and has been lucky enough to be placed with a foster family. She has a calm, quiet, gentle nature and really loves being with people. She enjoys playing with her toys and has a fondness of playing with her ball and tossing her toy rope when not running around the yard.
All adoption fees are waived for Macy Gray with the help of valley veterinarians. By providing free microchips, immunizations, and spay surgery to pets adopted by 98 KUPD listeners and friends of Fulton Homes, pets like Macy Gray will ensure a happy and healthy transition into their new home.
