Free Social Media Help for Shelters and Rescues

Romeo the cat, whose mom is behind this great project!

When it comes to helping animals, the Internet can be a very powerful place. Just one quick glance at my Facebook stream every day, and I see cat after cat and dog after dog that are looking for forever homes, hoping to be saved from death row in kill shelters or begging for donations for vet care.

When it comes to shelters and rescues, the key is making the most of social media and your web presence to maximize the effect it can help on your mission to help animals. But where do you start? And what to do? And how?

That's what I'm so excited to share in my post today!

An amazing group of my friends and fellow bloggers and animal advocates have decided to come together to answer any and all questions shelters and rescues might have about making the most of social media!

These four fabulous people know all about social media, blogging, Web sites and, most importantly, are passionate about animal welfare. And they've decided to get together to generously offer their expertise to help rescues and shelters -- for free!

Here's the crew:

Caroline of Romeo the Cat
Dr. V of Pawcurious
Jaime of Thoughts Fur Paws
Paris and John of Cattipper

These generous bloggers are inviting rescues and shelters to submit their questions about social media, web sites and online marketing to my staff: caroline (at) romeothecat (dot) com and they'll choose one question every week and answer it on Monday.

We know animal rescue is hard work, and much of your time is taken up simply helping the animals. Let them help you help the animals even more.

And if you know of a rescue or shelter that could use a cleaner, better, more useful Web site, you may want to check out MyShelterSite.com (free Web sites for rescues and shelters, sponsored by Rachel Ray's Nutrish!). It's what inspired this group, just knowing that anything that can make rescue work a little easier can make a big difference!
