Adopt the Internet Day

Petfinder Adopt-the-Internet Day

Thanks to The Cats of Wildcat Woods, we were reminded that today is Adopt the Internet Day!!! And how perfect - we'd planned to reactivate our Petfinder account to help Poco and Teddy (and tomorrow, a surprise new face... no, not Wally, someone else!) find homes, so we hustled our butt up and did it! Here are the details:

What It's All About In honor of Petfinder's 15th birthday, Petfinder is asking people everywhere to pledge to spread the word online about adoptable pets on March 15, 2011.

What You Can Do Now

  • Add a badge (like the neat one above) to your Web site to show your support.
  • Take the pledge that you will tell one person about pet adoption. By pledging, you'll enter for a chance to win one of 10 Pet Hair Eraser®Vacuums from BISSELL.
  • Donate your Facebook status and photo to an adoptable Petfinder pet. Simply replace your photo with one from the Adopt-the-Internet All-Stars gallery and post one of these messages:
    • More than 320,000 pets are waiting for homes on Help Petfinder Adopt the Internet today and find forever homes for as many as possible!
    • I adopted my pet from Petfinder and now I want to help get this pet adopted! If you want to help pets in need of forever homes, please repost this!
  • Share an adoptable Petfinder pet on Twitter with the hashtag #adopttheinternet.
  • Add a link to your blog, Facebook or Twitter post to Petfinder's Adopt the Internet page!

And who are we promoting? Well, of course, Poco and Teddy and the little lady who has been in our sidebar from TCOWW, pretty Avon. Click on any one for more details!!

Oh, and what about Wally?? We're still waiting! *sigh* Sophie is worried she will never have a boyfriend... but we're telling her patience is a virtue!!
