Tweet the Change & Rescue Pets #BTC4A

by Mary Haight on October 23, 2012

Tweet the change, rescue pets – be part of raising $5000 for doing what you probably do every day! 

I’ve been involved with shelter work with a no-kill for nearly 15 years, and I can tell you that extra money walking in the door is a gift that will bring much needed relief for the animals under their care. There are always surprise expenses when caring for animals – medical care is usually at the top of the expenditures list. If you will include a new tweet in your routine once or twice a day for the next few days, you can be some dog or cat’s hero. Here’s how:

Tweet for rescue petsFor every tweet and blog post featuring the #BTC4A hashtag (short for Be the Change for Animals) from October 22-27, Petco will donate $1 for rescue pets – up to $5,000 – at BarkWorld!

You Can Help!

Participating is super-easy! Here’s what you need to do:

  • Tweet this now through Saturday, October 27th at 11 AM (EST) :

Rescue pets receive $1 from @Petco at @BarkWorldExpo for each #BTC4A tweet from Oct 22-27! Learn more: http://ht.ly/eEls7

  • Blog about what rescue means to you, now through Saturday, October 27th at 11 AM (EST) and add #BTC4A to your post title. Include your post link (not just your domain) in the blog hop list below to be counted. Bonus: Each time your post is tweeted, you’ll earn another dollar for rescue pets!
  • BarkWorld attendees can nominate their favorite no-kill, 501(c)3 rescue or shelter at the Petco booth through Friday, October 26th!

The winning organizations will be announced this weekend during BarkWorld’s Petco session on Saturday!

Why It Matters

Animal organizations need funds for food, vaccinations, spays, neuters, treatment of injuries and illness – expenses that adoption fees don’t fully cover. General donations allow an organization to address their most pressing needs. Together, we can raise $5,000 to assist local, no-kill rescues and shelters!

The animal lovers at Be the Change for Animals, BarkWorld, Petco, and Two Little Cavaliers believe that helping rescue pets is important. We know you do too. Make the difference. Be, Blog and Tweet the Change for Animals!

You DO NOT need to attend BarkWorld to participate – simply tweet or post and help raise $5,000!
