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.

If everyone posts now and again, and it helps just one kittie, that’s one less in shelter 🙂 Have a great Thursday xx00xx

Brian, you and so many others do such an amazing job finding homes for our friends… the world is a better place because of you….

There are so many kind animal lovers out there and the more we get the word out, the better the chances for our furry friends. Thanks once again Brian for all you do.

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.

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!

Wow, you read 400 posts a day? How do you do that? I’m lucky to read 20 and yours is always one of them. Social media is the best thing that ever happened to helping cats.

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

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!
