Take Five Friday: Diamonds, Darts and Dry-Erase Boards
Where can you get engaged, throw some darts and know with 100% certainty when to walk the dog? At your friendly neighborhood shelter, of course…
- Lovin’ how Central Oklahoma Humane Society shows off their animals for adoption AND offers an alternative way for folks to help. “Come visit Damien when we open at 11 AM!,” they recently posted on Facebook along with the following photo. “Even if you are not looking to adopt today we would love to have you visit us. And if anyone is feeling generous, we are in need of air freshener and Windex.”
- Imagine how surprised Animal Rescue League of Boston volunteer Hanna was to see the brand-new litter of kittens she and her beau Raj were asked to foster…
Yes, that IS an engagement ring! For the complete story, see ARL Boston’s Shelter Proposal Facebook photo album. Congratulations, Hanna and Raj, and way to go, Animal Rescue League of Boston, for the great social media storytelling and showing what happy places shelters can be!
- ShamWOW! Check out the St. Patrick’s Day-themed adoption promotion that Sacramento County Animal Care held over the recent holiday weekend.
“What a great day it’s been,” the agency reported. “We are exceeding our own expectations! Staff, volunteers and customers are bonding over the dart board promotion. Strangers cheering for adopters, staff and volunteers engaging with potential adopters… Saving lives and improving staff/volunteer morale? Who knew!”

- Dry-erase board heaven, as envisioned by Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society:
Says SFAS’ Kelly Tribelhorn, “The great thing about our dog walking board is that it’s more accessible than a computer for seeing who lives where, how many times they’ve gotten out for the day and who’s been adopted. A great overall view of the adoption kennels for all to use!” For more deets on what makes this board so special, please check the comment box of the Wordless Wednesday column we recently featured it in.
What would your dream dry-erase board look like?!
