Home For Hope

The Huffington post featured an article yesterday on a new collaboration that is currently in place between IKEA Furniture and Animal Shelters in both Singapore and Arizona. The project is called Home for Hope and is based on the concept that furniture helps to make our living spaces comfortable, but nothing makes a house a home like a fury best friend.

Amid the furniture in the Ikea showrooms one can now find a cardboard cut out of an adoptable dog. Each cut out has a tag that shoppers can scan to learn more about the individual animal. This is an excellent idea and a great way to show people what their home would look like with a dog in it.

All of the six animals featured in cutouts at the store in Tempe have now been adopted from the Arizona Humane Society, and more cutouts will be exhibited in the store at the end of the month. At least eight pups have been adopted in Singapore so far, according to the Home for Hope website.

What a wonderful idea, I hope that all the IKEA stores around the world will jump on board and support such a worthwhile cause.
