MINI Put Cameras Onto Puppies! You’ll Giggle At What Happens Next!
Mini strapped cameras to the backs of four different dogs – Cooper, Turbo, Ziggy and Zaggy -- to give prospective MINI owners a dog’s eye tour of a MINI Cooper, offering an especially cute way to explore the iconic little car. Visitors to k9showroom.miniusa.comcan watch a variety of rotating external and internal views and also follow a link to see dogs that are available for adoption. Puppy fans can also “tweet a treat” and watch as one of the adorable furballs sniffs out treats that drop from a treat booth.
Mini created the K-9 showroom website to promote the MINI Next Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles event taking place through the end of July. The K-9 Showroom ties together the enthusiastic love MINI owners have with their dogs and their cars as well as MINI’s partnership with Best Friends Animal Society, a leader in the no-kill pet rescue movement. MINI NEXT is pleased to have an energetic handful of special "K-9 Motoring Advisors" in their car to give visitors a special online "puppy vision" tour.
During the MINI NEXT July Adoption Event, MINI will make a donation to Best Friends Animal Society® for every MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned vehicle that's financed through MINI Financial Services. Naturally, it only makes sense to tour these rigorously inspected, MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned vehicles from their K-9 copilots' point of view. As part of the month-long promotion, some MINI dealerships are also holding special adoption events, encouraging car and pet lovers to adopt either a pre-owned dog or car. Many of these locations are making additional donations to local shelters as well.
Each year, millions of healthy, homeless pets are killed in our nation's shelters. But it doesn't have to be that way. If more people would choose to adopt a pet, instead of buying one, we could reduce the number of animals killed in shelters significantly. Best Friends Animal Society® is the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. A leader in the no-kill movement, Best Friends runs the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, as well as lifesaving programs with rescue groups across the country. Best Friends and partners, like MINI, are working to Save Them All®.
According to the Best Friends Animal Society, adopting an animal from an animal shelter or sanctuary is a fulfilling experience. Whether you adopt a puppy or kitten, purebred dog or cat, mix without an identifiable designer label, bunny, parrot, or other creature, one of the best parts about bringing a pet home from the shelter is knowing you saved a life. True love is waiting for you.
