Shelter Creates Awesome Parody of ‘The Bachelor’

A New Mexico animal shelter has created an awesome video to help increase their adoption rates. Last Friday, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society released the video, which is a parody of the wildly popular reality television show, The Bachelor.

On Friday, the shelter posted the video to Facebook followers:

The Dog Bachelor – The Final Cut
We make love happen! Please enjoy our take on The Bachelor – The Dog Bachelor! Thanks to everyone who made this video possible. We have many bachelors and bachelorettes waiting for you at the shelter! #adopt

The video has been a hit (shared over 1500 times so far), and it’s easy to see why…it is quite literally, fun (and funny) to watch. Women in the parody are vying for the attention of a hunky canine named “Stuart,” and just like the real “Bachelor” there is drama…and tears. Take a peek at what some people are calling, “Brilliant!”

From the shelter’s website:

Since 1939, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has been dedicated to its mission to reduce animal suffering by curbing overpopulation, teaching compassion and supporting healthy relationships between people and animals.

The Shelter focuses on spay/neuter programs to control overpopulation, creative adoption efforts to bring pets to loving families and providing support for marginalized animals. We target our programs to serve the neighborhoods and communities where animals are most at risk.

Before the Shelter was founded, stray dogs were shot and dumped at the edge of town. Today, Santa Fe is home to one of the most progressive and successful shelters in the nation.

Thanks to a partnership with the City of Santa Fe and the Bureau of Land Management, the main Shelter is housed on a 100-acre campus with hiking trails and plenty of room to walk dogs.
