Bloggers Unite July 23rd for Dog Rescue Success

On July 23, 2012 Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue will unite and join together using the power of our blogs across the world to help save the lives of dogs in need.

WHAT IS IT AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

On July 23, 2012 Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue will unite and join together using the power of our blogs across the world to help save the lives of dogs in need.

Blog Catalog has partnered with Dog Rescue Success in Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue, and would love it if you would join in and make a difference that results in a massive nation-wide global campaign to promote the life or death difference consumers can make through dog adoptions.

Millions of dogs are euthanized each year because not enough people are adopting dogs through local rescue groups and shelters. Instead, many people purchase from pet stores not knowing that most come from puppy mills. (read more @ www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cruelty/puppy-mills/puppy-scams-cons.aspx )

Local dog rescue organizations consist of volunteers who help by fostering dogs in their own homes while they search for permanent placement, taking dogs to adoption events, fundraising to cover medical and boarding costs to name a few. Most rescue groups do not have the luxury of employees or people dedicated to promoting their efforts on a large scale. This is where Bloggers can give these unsung heroes and homeless dogs a voice.

As their own resources permit, these groups work with local animal shelters in an effort to place adoptable dogs that are scheduled for euthanization. The sad fact is that many dogs die every day before they find a “forever home”. The commercials you see on television about neglect and abuse are very real. Consumers can literally save a dog’s life simply by choosing adoption over a pet store or breeder purchase.

Per the HSUS, hsus.typepad.com/wayne/2007/11/not-killing-pet.html , “Nationwide, only about 20 percent of dogs in homes come from shelters—the rest come from other sources. It would only take a relatively small increase in the adoption rate along with a modest reduction in the birth rate to go a long way toward solving the problem of euthanizing healthy and treatable dogs in many communities.” We all have the ability to make a difference in the world by taking action. Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue participants have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of dogs in need.

As part of Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue on July 23, 2012, we ask, if you choose to join in, that you write a blog post about Dog Rescue and any issues related to it whether personal stories or resources that you are interested in sharing information and raising awareness about.

What a great idea Tony!

For anyone that decides to join in this global campaign, it would be great if they would add their link here so that we can all view them and we can help give this campaign the attention it deserves by sharing all over the internet!

Yes. Count me in. It took a tsunami in Japan to raise worldwide awareness on this issue last time (a check in the mail seemed so silent).

Writers (yes, even scifi writers) never hope for this as a future dystopia. Let's do it!

I have created a board on Pinterest to add Dog Rescue Success stories as a place to add Dog Rescue Organizations and resources.

http://pinterest.com/bloggersunite/dog-rescue-success/

There is a Facebook page for the same purpose at

http://www.facebook.com/BloggersUnite.org

On July 23rd please list your posts on any and all of these including the BlogCatalog page at

http://www.blogcatalog.com/discuss/entry/bloggers-unite-for-dog-rescue-july-23-2012

The result will be that we raise awareness about the millions of dogs that are dying because of negligence and lack of knowledge each year as well as perhaps raise money for those organizations in need of funding. Most of the Dog Resuce operations are self funded.

If you would like to be added as a moderator of the Pinterest page so that you can add more of these organizations please let me know and I will add you to the page.

That's great Tony....I will pass on this info...I have a dear friend on Facebook who calls herself "Debbie the Dog Lady", I know she will get onboard and pass this on to her friends as well...This made me think of my Mother, long passed now... she was president of the SPCA....and so many pets she rescued ended up living with us...My Father built a kennel beside the house, which was kind of interesting as we lived in what they called "Country Club Estates"...lol It sort of annoyed our one neighbor I think...nice to see you posting Tony....
