Thankful Thursday: Thankful for Rescue Posts

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Do you see what I see?  Believe it or not, we read close to 400 new blog posts each day and I am seeing more and more posts about critters in shelters that are waiting for their forever homes.  I am so very thankful for those posts.  Over the years I’ve learned that you never know who is reading.  Seriously, I do believe that most of us don’t realize how many actually read our blogs.   Sure, they may not comment often, or at all, but the readers are out there.  I have experienced that first paw quite often and most recently I have had some comments and some emails from some who don’t have a blog, but they read ours on a regular basis.  Combine that with the power of Twitter and Facebook and the possibilities are there!

We experienced that most recently when we were trying to find dear sweet Otis a new home.  The one who rescued Otis saw the post via a friends Facebook page.  Not only did Otis get a wonderful forever home just miles away from us, there were four other families lined up to take that sweet boy.  So thank you to all of you who post occasionally about those needing homes.  While it doesn’t always work every time, it only has to work one time for the one you save.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    I know what you mean, Brian! I helped a kitty get rescued a few months ago by spreading the word – and it turned out a rescue I knew and a fan of mine were in the same town – in another country! And they were able to work together to get the kitty out of the kill shelter! So you never know what is going to happen when you send out the word on somekitty who needs help.

    Brian, you do such a great job getting the word out about the cats. It is so important to get the word out about all the kitties in the shelters. I think the best thing is when everyone shares the posts on Facebook and Twitter.
    We will try to do more posts ourselves.
    Sending lots of purrs and prayers to your Grandma
    Take care and have a great day.

    In the few years we’ve been around the CB we’ve seen an upswing in these posts too, which is wonderful. You’ve been a major player in this regard, and it’s fantastic.

    Momma read somewhere that social networking and blogging has created for the Rescue Community an “underground railroad” the like and effectiveness not seen since the Civil War. We believe that the more hands and paws joined in a common mission of rescuing, transporting and finding homes the more lives saved. Four of the six of the WDA came to us as a result of FB contacts and from all corners of the country. It works!

    I know that readers who don’t blog are reading, and now some have actually commented. Brian, give Dad Terry a hug from Mom Linda, we just learned of Grandma’s passing…so very very sorry, paw hug and people hugs, Savannah and Mom Linda

    I often feel that the only ones that read my blog are the ones who comment. All in all, I only get about 50-60 visits to each blog so I’m not sure I can make a difference. Comforting purrz and {{{hugs}}} on the loss of your Grandma. I know she was a wonderful women to raise someone and instill some compassion.

  12. Angel MoMo

    Thank you for all the good work that you have been doing so tirelessly. Yes, we are thank you for the social media for what it can do in spreading the needs of animals.

    So sorry to hear about your gran. We are sending kind thoughts and soft purrs.

  13. Katie Isabella

    I am so so sorry about your Grandma Brian, and I send love and comfort to your mom and dad and all of you furbabies. She had to have been a wonderful lady to have reared such a compassionate family.

    I just saw that your Grandmother passed away. I am so sorry for your loss my friends. Big hugs to you and your family and gentle purrs to help ease your sadness.

  18. Remy

    Yes, I am thankful for these posts too, Brian! Mom and I always share them on our Facebook and Twitter because you’re right — you never know where a pet in need is going to find their family!

  19. caren gittleman

    yes, we couldn’t agree more. And thanks to those who SHARE the posts….because when you share to your own followers they might not be following someone else and you never know who will see it!
    We’re with you on reading close to 400 posts…..it’s crazy!

  20. Misses Peach

    Dearest Brian….we are so sad to hear the news that your granny has gone over the rainbow bridge…a granny in our family who was 102 will be there to meet yours…she left us on New Years day. We believe!!!!
    Love Miss Peach

  21. Nancy Black

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you on the passing of your Grandma, hugs and purrs for you. I’m so sorry…

    I’m so thrilled Otis found his forever home. All cats deserve a forever loving home filled with love and Joy.

  22. Harry Spotter

    Just heard about your grandmother, we are so very sorry. Sending your family lots of hugs, purrs, and prayers.

    400 posts a day? I’m lucky if I read that in one year. But that’s because we work in rescue and that comes first. We could not find homes for these innocent, voiceless, defenseless creatures without the help of animal lovers and bloggers like you. The good news is that Figaro and Luciano were adopted Christmas week! That was the best gift I could receive. Sophie, our 3-legged kitten has potential prospect. Here’s to social media and bloggers and genuine animal lovers like you! Christine

  24. Clooney

    Yay, that is just fantastic! Happy New Year kitties, may 2013 bring you and your family much joy, love, peace, health and prosperity!

  25. Selina

    Well OBVIOUSLY MomKatt & I are thankful for these posts – look where it got ME! XOXO Now I’M trying to help a kitty at the country club where I was – see my post for today 1/11/13 for details. And I linked to you in it, as well.

    We love you! And we’ve never ceased to be grateful ’cause you brought MomKatt & me together!

    PURRS!

    It’s very very good to hear these stories! We’re thinking of branching out to other shelters in our area – it’s a nice problem to have, but it seems every time we blog about one of the kitties at Wayside – he or she gets adopted before the post goes live!

    Besides, being at Wayside as a no-kill, they’re already safe, whereas other kill shelters in our area might benefit more from it. That’s one of our 2013 goals!
