Last weekend, Rob Morlino only had one question for his viewers — would they adopt him?
Morlino, Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society‘s strategic outreach coordinator, spent all 48 hours of this past weekend living inside the kennel to raise $10,000 for homeless animals.
Not only did Morlino live within the shelter’s limits all weekend long, but he lived life as one of its homeless inhabitants.
He was cared for by its volunteers, taken on walks, let out for doggie playtime, and more. Additionally, the whole event was live streamed on Facebook, so viewers could tune in, watch Morlino’s antics, and donate to the shelter’s cause.
And amazingly enough, their plan actually worked! Viewers absolutely ate up the shelter’s #AdoptRob coverage.
Swarms of animal lovers tuned in on Facebook to watch Morlino live amongst the other animals and donate to “adopt” him.
Within their 48 hour window, the shelter’s team successfully surpassed their $10,000 fundraising goal, a beautiful way to close out their incredible event.
