Ikea Advertises Adoptable Dogs In Stores | Video

Ikea has teamed up with Home for Hope to help promote adoption by displaying cardboard cutouts of adoptable dogs in some of their stores. The idea started in Singapore to show people how their house might feel like more of a home with a furry friend in it.

The cutouts all have tags on them with codes that a shopper can scan to learn more about an individual dog.

An Ikea store in Tempe, Arizona, has joined in and all of the six animals featured in cutouts have now been adopted from the Arizona Humane Society. ”We thought it was a perfect way to show people what their home would look like with a pet in it,” Becky Blaine, Ikea Tempe’s marketing director, said.

According to the Home for Hope website, at least eight pups have been adopted in Singapore so far.
