October 10, 2019

Coldwell Banker Resort Realty-Lewes Office and Grass Roots Rescue Joined Forces for National “Homes for Dogs” Adoption Held on Saturday, September 28, 2019

On September 28th, 2019 Coldwell Banker Resort Realty and Grass Roots Rescue- Milton, DE, joined hundreds of Coldwell Banker offices and animal shelters around the country for the Coldwell Banker “Homes for Dogs” National Adoption Weekend.

The “Homes for Dogs” project was a great success thanks to the Grass Roots Rescue. Dogs were up for adoption right in front of the Lewes Office.  “Pet Smart” donated adoption packets, and giveaways along with “Tail Bangers” donating bags and dog treats!

We would like to thank the following sponsors who donated to the event: Groomingdale’s Pet Salon, The Pet Station Salon, Seaside Pet Salon, Concord Pet, Pups of Lewes, The Station on Kings, Pro-Spect Inspection Services, AmeriSpec Inspection Services, Reliable Inspection Services, Tunnell & Raysor and Oak Construction. 

“Coldwell Banker would like to thank the Lewes Community for participating in our “Homes for Dogs” project! We are lucky enough to help people in the Lewes community find new homes every day,” said Julie Gritton, Broker/Branch Manager.  “Now, we extended that service to pets in need. It’s a win-win!  Our 2nd year was bigger and a great success with all the local businesses supporting this great cause.”

The nationwide adoption weekend was part of the “Homes for Dogs Project,” a four-year campaign launched by Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC and Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website.

In just the first year alone, the organizations helped to facilitate more than 20,000 adoptions. Coldwell Banker® launched “Old Dog New Dog,” in May 2018, a national advertising campaign which told the stories of a family and an older homeless dog who find each other thanks to the Coldwell Banker agent who is volunteering at a pet adoption event. “Old Dog, New Dog” ranked as the highest rated real estate ad of 2018, according to Ace Metrix, the leader in measuring the impact of television and digital advertising. The ad earned top marks for likeability and is the second highest rated real estate ad ever, right behind last year’s, “Somebody to Love,” also from the Coldwell Banker brand.

“At Coldwell Banker Resort Realty, we strive to support the community and give back in any way possible. Being community minded is a core value at the organization level and among  the Realtors in all four branches. It was a pleasure to host this wonderful event” says Kathy Newcomb, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Consumer Engagement.
