The Cuddliest Black Friday Deal: Zappos Will Pay for You to Adopt a Pet This Weekend
Zappos wants you to get a puppy this weekend. Yes, you read that correctly.
The company is looking beyond shoe sales this holiday by sponsoring Home for the Pawlidayz, a free pet adoption promotion running through Monday.
How to Get Zappos to Pay for Your New Pet
To participate, all future pet owners have to do is visit Best Friends Animal Society or any of the organization’s partner rescues around the country. Zappos will take care of the rest.
But the shoe retailer isn’t just sponsoring the cost of your adoption. Zappos will also donate an additional $150 per pet adopted to help Best Friends Animal Society take care of more adoptable pets.
Zappos has earmarked $1.1 million for the campaign, which it says will cover an estimated 4,000 pet adoptions at approximately $100 each, along with the costs of caring for hundreds more adoptable pets housed by shelters and rescues.
To start your pet adoption process this weekend, find your nearest Best Friends Animal Society location or one of its partner rescues near you.
