Viral Video Stars Get Adopted

A holiday promotional video for the pet food Freshpet is hysterical — and it’s helping animals. The spot features a dining room table with 13 dogs and one cat (who’s seated at the head of the table) dressed up like humans and feasting on a holiday dinner. All of the animals featured in the video are Utah rescue animals — and four of them were up for adoption at the Humane Society of Utah when the video was filmed. "The fact that they could go from a kennel in the shelter to [a] set with lots of distractions and people they have never met before and perform as well as they did just shows how amazing shelter dogs can be," said HSU’s Guinnevere Shuster. While two of them have found homes, Lion the cat and Bear the 7-year-old Pit Bull mix from the video are still up for adoption. The video has had more than 1.6 million views since it was released Monday, and 40 of the shelter’s other animals have been adopted since then, too. — Read it at the Huffington Post
