Social Petworking Month: What Is It and How You Can Help

Social networking makes it easy for people to stay in touch with loved ones or follow celebrities, but it has other uses as well. In fact, these networking sites can be put to good use during June for Social Petworking Month.

Social Petworking Month is a whole month dedicated to using social networking sites to help homeless pets find good homes. Posting images and information on these pets helps spread the word among your network that these animals are looking for a loving home.

During June, simply visit national pet adoption websites or the websites of local shelters, humane societies and rescue groups to search for pets that are up for adoption. All you have to do is click on specific pets and share their information on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.. Anyone who is part of your network will see these posts. If they “like” or share these posts, more and more people will then see them and learn about pets who need homes.

You can also advocate in other ways on social networks. Adding comments or posting about the benefits of adopting a pet instead of going to a breeder provides other people with information they might not have known before. You can also clear up misconceptions about adopting pets from shelters or rescue groups, such as the belief that these animals were given away due to behavioral problems. If your post is shared by people in your network and goes viral, it could be seen by hundreds or thousands of people.

Use your social networking accounts to support a good cause this June. Keep in mind that you can always post about adoptable pets anytime.
