Mirror Mates Your new best friend is closer than it appears.

To help the Miami-Dade Animal Shelter remind potential pet adopters of the joys of owning a dog, we created car mirror decals with the image of a real shelter dog happily sticking its head out the window, and applied them to car side mirrors in local parks.

When drivers returned to their cars and looked into their side mirrors, they saw the face of a very happy dog ready to go home with them. The decals directed people to the shelter’s website with the message: Your new best friend is closer than it appears.
