Just a thought.
The point in campaigning for adoptions is to bring awareness to getting people to adopt dogs that already exist vs adding to the over-population of dogs and cats by purposefully breeding them. Or even adding to the population simply by not getting your pet spayed or neutered. Even if it is to "preserve" the breed. I understand your point and why the ad is offensive, but their point is that too many healthy animals are dying because there aren't enough people adopting the animals that are already living.
I've recently started watching the series, Dr. Jeff, and he makes excellent points in why it's so vital to spay and neuter and to adopt vs buying a pet. Over population is a massive problem and there needs to be more awareness of it.
I really like the campaign. There was a bit too much information squeezed in to soak up, but it's important to educate the need to adopt.
