Take Five Friday: When Twins Adopt, Facebook Photo Albums and Big Dudes Who Love Little Dogs
- Last week I shared the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region‘s strategy for promoting available cats who aren’t on their adoption floor, and this week I wanted to pass on another cool tool for doing this, courtesy of Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center—a kick-butt Facebook photo album that features pix and descrips of available foster animals like Princess.
Three things that make this ASPCA Partnership agency’s album so effective: 1.) Adopters get to see animals in a home setting. 2.) Captions include background and description, contact info, ID # and a link to the adoption application. 3.) Because it’s on Facebook, this album was made for sharing. Click!

- 175 animals in Lowcountry NC woke up in new homes last Sunday, thanks to great matches made by Doc Williams SPCA, Frances R. Willis SPCA and our ASPCA Partnership agencies Pet Helpers and The Charleston Animal Society during last weekend’s Tri-County “Home for the Holidays” event.
And what’ll make you really verklempt: adoption fees for all adult cats and dogs were underwritten by a local doctor!
Have you partnered with other agencies on a mega-adoptions event?
