Encouraging holiday animal adoption


The Pittsburgh Knights esports team has been living in Atlanta with other top-level global players for the past year. Hosted by Hi-Rez, the Alpharetta-based video gaming studio, the Knights have been competing in the SMITE Pro League game. To help with animal adoptions in their home away from home, the team recently visited a local rescue center to spread holiday cheer and shine a light on pet adoptions.

Their visit to Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, Georgia’s largest no-kill facility, resulted in the players falling in love with a pack of puppies and encouraging Atlantans to adopt and donate during the holiday season.

“Georgia is a great place to call home,” said Knights player Kennet “Adapting” Ros of Sweden, in a statement. “I hope these little pups can say the same thing this Christmas.”

Furkids’ mission is to rescue homeless animals and provide them with medical care and a nurturing environment while working to place them in forever homes. You could be a holiday hero by giving one of Furkids’ cats or dogs a home.
