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.
