Ikea Offers Something That Can Really Make a House a Home: A Rescue Dog


Written by: Phil Monahan


The home-furnishings giant Ikea is part of a new project to find forever homes for shelter dogs and to promote the concept of dog adoption in general. At stores in Singapore and Tempe, Arizona, shoppers are met with cardboard cutouts of available dogs in the furniture displays. It’s part of an effort called  Home for Hope:

Shoppers can scan barcodes attached to the their future pet to learn more about the pet’s personality. Pet profiles are also available on IKEA’s Home for Hope website where pups like Jasmine, a sweet, human-friendly mother is waiting to be adopted.

So far, all six dogs featured in Tempe have been adopted. Let’s hope that more companies get involved in this great program.
