Fulton Homes chooses Greta, a 2-year-old pit bull mix, as August’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. Brought in as a stray to Lost Our Homes Pet Rescue, two-and-a-half-year-old Greta is August’s featured pick.
“Pets are an extension of our families. With remote work and school schedules, many Arizona families are spending more time at home and are able to enjoy the companionship of pets, going for walks and playing. But there are still so many animals in need of loving homes,” says Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes. “We are encouraging everyone to continue the trend of emptying animal shelters around the valley.”
While there has been an increase in adoptions in recent months, Maricopa County still ranks second highest for stray animals in the United States. The largest Arizona shelter takes in about 17,000 animals annually. This campaign is critical for the advocacy of pet adoption and to combat pet homelessness.
Fulton Homes and 98KUPD feature 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 Mondays through Thursdays, with a grand reveal of the chosen pet on Fridays. Fulton Homes will then feature one pet each month to build awareness around the campaign.
Greta, a pit bull mix, was brought in as a stray to the shelter. She is a very happy girl who likes to be with her people. The two-and-half-year-old loves to explore, go for walks and likes learning new skills and tricks. She generally gets along with other dogs and loves to play.
All adoption fees are waived for Greta 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 Greta will ensure a happy and healthy transition into their new home.
