Homeless Dogs Takeover IKEA Showrooms

by Jim Chesters

A group in Singapore called Home for Hope came up with a clever way to find new adopters: put the homeless dogs in IKEA stores. Well, almost.

What Home for Hope did was print up life-sized cutouts of dogs that were available for adoption from the shelters they work with. Then in collaboration with IKEA, they placed the cutouts in IKEA store showrooms along with information and a QR code that could be scanned to tell more about the adoptable dog and how to adopt him or her.

After IKEA spearheaded the project, other local furniture stores hopped on board, and now Singapore’s homeless dogs have a new chance at getting themselves adopted along with a new couch to snooze on.
