If you want a good cry, check out the new video produced by the Humane Society of the United States to promote pet adoption. It does have some happy endings, but it's a real tear-jerker.
The music video to the song "I Need Love," by Daylight for Deadeyes, illustrates the number of animals still in shelters, looking for someone to love them.
The Humane Society says the band, brothers Chris and Matt Gormley and band mate Andy Neill, are all animal lovers and pet owners, and they quickly saw how the song connected to animals.
"That's one thing we have in common with dogs, cats and other animals," said Chris. "We all need someone to love us, and someone to love."
So they offered their song to The HSUS in hopes it might be used to help pets in shelters.
Release of the video corresponds to the launch of "The Shelter Pet Project," a national public service ad campaign designed to encourage pet lovers to make shelters their first choice for finding a new pet.
