 Jolly Pets has wrapped up its highly anticipated Jolly Madness campaign with resounding success! This year, instead of featuring conventional “toy ambassadors,” the company showcased the adorable faces of four adoptable dogs from two local shelters – Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL) and Humane Society of Summit County – aiming to raise awareness and facilitate their adoption. In addition to donating 100 toys each to both shelters, the brand also pledged to cover the adoption fees for the featured pups.

During the campaign, Jolly Pets engaged its audience through social media content, encouraging participation in the Jolly Madness toy bracket contest. Each bracket featured a popular toy from every one of the brand’s play categories: tug, chew and chase. Participants who filled out brackets predicting the winners of their favorite toys were entered for a chance to win a prize pack of Jolly Pets toys. The brand kept its followers updated on the progress of the toys and the adoption status of the featured dogs through regular social media updates.

“We’re beyond thrilled with the outcome of this year’s Jolly Madness campaign. We wanted to involve our audience in a fun and interactive way and the response was fantastic,” commented Carissa Kehr, content and partnership manager at Jolly Pets. “By featuring adoptable dogs as our “toy ambassadors”, we aimed not only to showcase their irresistible charm but also to advocate for their adoption. We’re excited to share that two of the featured dogs have already found their forever homes.”

As a result of the campaign’s success, Jolly Pets raised an additional 101 toys for the shelters. This brought the total to 301 toys donated to each shelter, respectively, including a few bonus toys from the Jolly Madness brackets.

“We were delighted to be a part of the Jolly Madness campaign with Jolly Pets. Jolly Pets has been a wonderful partner by not only donating toys but advocating for dogs in shelters who are waiting to find their new homes,” said Sharon Harvey, president and CEO of the Cleveland APL. “Shelters across the country are working hard to increase adoptions. Having the opportunity to highlight shelter animals in different ways is invaluable. We are grateful to Jolly Pets for supporting shelter dogs by raising awareness and donating toys, which happen to be very popular amongst our residents.”
