MLB pitcher Mark Buehrle using spring training to promote pet adoption
Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle is in Arizona with his team for the Major League Baseball spring training slate. He and his wife Jamie are working with Adopt-a-Pet.com to promote adoption and are featured in a billboard campaign featuring the message - “When it comes to saving pets, we’re all on the same team.”
Buehrle is quoted in a Benzinga.com article as saying, “Our dogs are a huge part of our family, and you can find any kind of dog you want at a shelter on Adopt-a-Pet.com. We adopted a purebred Viszla, and it’s obvious how grateful he is. He just knows that we saved him.”
There it is again, a statement suggesting rescued pets know they’ve been rescued and are grateful. The message is spreading.
