The Humane Society of New Mexico recently made a new ad campaign to encourage people to adopt shelter dogs. Get ready for the tearjerker ending.

According to the Humane Society, they have over 2.7 million perfectly healthy and adoptable animals who are homeless every year. The holidays are a wonderful time to have the family go down to your local shelter and adopt a pet. To encourage people to adopt, they created this commercial, which features one of their dogs finally getting adopted. You see how happy he is to finally be apart of a family, and all the wonderful things that come with it. But in the end, you see the cold hard truth. Watch the video for yourself and consider adopting from your local shelter. Here is information on the local Humane Societies in the area, so you can go and find your forever friend!
