RSPCA Uses Popularity Of Game Of Thrones To Help Rescue Dogs
The RSCPA recently did a campaign where they compared rescue animals in need of homes with Game Of Thrones Characters. It was a very clever way of creating awareness of animal rescue and encouraging people to consider it as an option. The RSPCA said ‘Like the diverse cast of Game Of Thrones, the RSPCA wants to showcase its wide variety of animals up for rehoming - from to pigs and horses.’
Game Of Thrones is an extremely popular TV show at the moment. It follows an ongoing battle for the throne in a fictional world. The characters are all very memorable and that’s why it was such a great idea to pair them with animal lookalikes. It’s excellent timing too, because the released this story just before the fourth series was about to start.
An RSPCA spokesman said 'Whether you are from House Stark, Lannister or a wanna-be 'Mother of Dragons' all these Game of Thrones animals are looking for homes and loving owners to take them in.' If you watch the show then you might be interested to which animals were paired with the most famous characters from the show.
