Posted November 16, 2018 06:11:51The lowes commercial promoting its dog adoption service has received a boost from a recent high school graduation.
The spot features a school graduation ceremony where students are presented with a photo of their new dog and the slogan “Dog lovers, meet your new best friend.”
The company posted the ad on Facebook and Twitter.
It has since been shared more than 1.5 million times.
In an interview with ABC News, Jeff Daugherty, vice president of communications for Lowes, said that when he first saw the ad, he had no idea it was going to be a hit.
“It’s a really interesting ad and it’s been really popular on Facebook.
It’s a pretty well-known message for a company,” Daugittiesaid.
He said he hopes the ad will bring in new dog owners.
“We are trying to educate our customers that if you are dog-friendly, we’re here to help you, whether you’re looking for a family dog or a companion dog,” he said.
Daugherty said that the ad is part of a broader program of promotions aimed at helping dogs.
“Our dog-centric program is a really big deal.
It is a way for us to continue to reach our customers,” he added.
Lowes launched its Dog and Cat Adoption Program in March, targeting dogs with special needs and those with other health problems.
Lowers dog and cat adoption program, including training and medical evaluations, is part with its Dog Care Initiative, a partnership with the Humane Society of the United States, which is helping raise funds for dog care at schools.
The Humane Society is a non-profit organization that advocates for humane treatment of all dogs and cats.
