On Friday, July 12th, the 1-800-Flowers.com Smile Squad headed to North Shore Animal League of America in Port Washington, NY to help deliver smiles at their summer adoption event with some truly original a-DOG-able® arrangements!
Alexis, an NSALA volunteer, said “We were more than happy to have 1-800-Flowers onsite at our shelter. They really did deliver many smiles, not only to the volunteers and adopters but to the animals as well.”
As part of our ongoing community outreach during the Summer of a Million Smiles, the team visited NSALA, the largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption agency in America. There are so many dogs and cats in need of loving homes, the Smile Squad team members wanted to reward those adopters who rescued a pet that day with one of our puppy-shaped a-DOG-able® bouquets. In the short four hours we were at the shelter, there were more than ten adoptions!
We couldn’t have been happier to see so many new additions to the families that adopted that day. Every adoption really does make a difference, and our team was proud to witness the impact it really makes, as well as delivering a few smiles in the process.
Anna, an NSALA adopter, told us “It was so thoughtful of 1-800-Flowers to come to the shelter and create an extra incentive to adopt a puppy by donating their super cute a-DOG-able® – my favorite was the Doggie Paddle™.”
Smile Ambassador and 1-800-Flowers employee Erica Granieri echoed the sentiments of the entire team by saying “As a pet adopter myself, it was a great day getting out in the community and trying to find these loving and friendly dogs a new home. If I could, I would take them all home!”
