Rally to teach responsible pet ownership to kids


PEP Rally Live is an interactive puppet show that captures the attention of audiences of all ages to cover the 5 simple steps to a happy and healthy pet. PEP Rallies are performed at schools or other large venues with young audiences of 100 plus. PEP Rally Live features a PEP Squad leader; and stars our very own PEPpets. PEP Rally Live incorporates comedy, music, special fx, and games to achieve a lighthearted atmosphere to subjects like pet care, spaying & neutering ,and much more.

Our purpose is to end euthanization of healthy and adoptable pets in the United States. Currently in Louisiana, 353 pets are put to sleep each day. The daily average for pets euthanized in our country is at a stark 11,000 per day. We are providing families and their children resources and education on key components to raising a happy and healthy pet. PEP! is aiming to reverse the number of intakes into our country's shelters and increase the number of adoptions.


PEP! is a long term project with visible impact 15 years into the future. We believe educating our youth to be accountable for the creatures that come into their lives is key. We are here to encourage kids to take action and commit to the pets that they currently own or will someday own in the future. Kids will then grow up knowing how to properly raise their pets, they will instinctively understand the importance of spaying & neutering, and ultimately understand the commitment that's required.

Long-Term Impact

The future for the welfare of animals is dependent on those who will stand up for them. We are speaking for the voiceless. We are projecting a visible change in 15- 20 years across the nation's shelters. PEP will seek national recognition in the faces of kids everywhere. We are making a visible and easy solution through creative and non-threatening means. And by this, we are tapping into the hearts of kids so they will grow up and make informed and ethical decisions regarding pet ownership.
