Gotta Adopt 'Em All

Creative Concept (does not include graphic design) 2017 CFHS Animal Welfare Leadership and Innovation Awards: Innovation in Public Engagement After the release of the popular Pokémon Go app in summer 2016, the Edmonton Humane Society quickly developed a strategic communications and marketing plan to both increase adoption and fundraise by tagging their location as a PokéStop and Pokémon Gym within the game. The Edmonton Humane Society turned Pokémon Go into an innovative public campaign, calling it “Gotta Adopt ‘Em All” - a play on the Pokémon catch phrase “Gotta Catch ‘Em All”. EHS utilized traditional and non-traditional media to increase awareness of the campaign and launch an adoption event where users who travelled to EHS’ PokéStop and Pokémon Gym were also given the chance to adopt a rabbit or an adult cat for a reduced rate of $10.
