See Him Rollin’: Watch This Dog Drive A Car
Some animal rights organizations advertise using images of abused dogs or cats in an effort to guilt trip people into adopting a rescue animal. Other animal rights organizations advertise using images of happy dogs or cats in an effort to show people what they’re missing by not having a pet.

It’s rapidly approaching three hundred thousand views, and hopefully, it will lead more than a few people to reach out and bring home one of the many worthy animals currently waiting on a home.
