This Pajama Party Helps Shelter Dogs Find Their Forever Homes
Where do we get our invite?
There's nothing more fun than a good ol' slumber party on a Friday night! Cuddling up on the couch in our favorite PJs while munching on a pizza and watching a movie sounds like something we can do every day. But one dog shelter in Atlanta has found a way to make your slumber parties even more fun.
Cue the puppies! Frustrated with the fact that many of their dogs were not getting adopted, the LifeLine Animal Project in Atlanta came up with the (genius) idea to let people dress pooches in adorable nightwear and have them for a sleepover.
After a pit bull named Paul Anka was adopted by the Sayer family immediately after a similar slumber party, the shelter decided to let other people do the same.
"In Paul's case, his new family had been hesitant to adopt a pit bull, but when they had him overnight, all their hesitation went right out the window," LifeLine's public relations director Karen Hirsch told TIME.
"It is much harder to get pit bulls adopted because of people's preconceived notions. Pit bulls make great companion dogs - they are incredibly loyal, silly, and have the biggest smiles around," she added.
Even if the puppies don't end up with a new home, they spend some quality time with people who give them a lot of love and affection, and we think that's pretty "pawesome."
