AVA's "Don't Get Pets on Impulse" campaign

I saw some of these beautiful posters either on Zocards or as posters at various bus stops.

I managed to get the ones with the dog and the mouse on Zocards, and I had so far seen the posters with the calico cat and the dog at bus stops.

I'm sure it wasn't easy to "shoot" these cute animals on film. :)

Most importantly, I hope the message gets through.

Hi Auntie P,

Just wondering... how is Sanju doing? :)

Hey, 5Cs...how are you? :)

Sanju is doing fine and getting lots of love from everyone at home. Have you seen this earlier post?
Sanju's photos

I'll try to ask Sanju's parents for more photos....by popular demand. ;)

These are very beautiful posters. Saw one with the untipped calico cat at the bus-stop next to mrt station. But are they effective?

I guess these posters can help to attract attention and create awareness. Ultimately, it's up to the people to practice the message in the posters - not to buy pets on impulse.

Capturing an animal on film is never easy but it gets easier with practice. :)

I wish they had used a mixed breed or ungroomed doggy instead of a nicely done up snausher (is that how you spell it?) instead.

Is it schnauzer? Maybe it's not such a bad idea after all, coz usually, it's the pedigree breeds that get purchased from pet shops/breeders (do people buy mongrels?), and people tend to go ga-ga "Oh-so-cute!!" over these toy breeds and may buy them on impulse.
