On Friday, November 3rd (just 11 days ago) I helped set up a Facebook page for the Animal Control of Wakulla County. The goal was to help get their wonderful animals the exposure that they so desperately needed to stay alive. While the officers of the shelter are truly amazing human beings, alone they just weren’t able to get the exposure necessary to save every life that ended up in their shelter, and that is why we decided to try and help.
Since the inception Facebook page, and my slightly pushy post about sharing, we have already saved a huge number of lives! Now, I am the very first to admit, the Facebook page certainly does not get all of the credit for this. I cannot say for certain how many of the lives were saved due to Facebook and how many through the networking of the officers and other volunteers, but without a doubt, I know that we have helped. So, to all of my followers, the other volunteers (who dedicate so much more of their own time than I do) and most of all, our Facebook followers, on the behalf of Friends of Wakulla County Animal Control: THANK YOU! A million times over, thank you!
Now, want to see some of the animals that have been rescued?
In addition to those listed above, we have also found foster homes for some of our dogs and kittens too! This is a huge deal because all of the animals that are now in foster care are: out of danger, being socialized and loved, and have created a space in the shelter for the dogs that are still there. Check them out:
The ones in foster care are still awaiting their permanent homes! Remember, if they are adopted then their foster parent can take in another one, open another space in the shelter, and save another life. It’s that simple.
So, once again, thank you a million times to everyone that has liked our page, shared our pictures, and especially the foster parents for opening your homes. You all are directly responsible for helping save these precious lives!
