PET PARDONS NOW SAVING LIVES IN CANADA
Members of Canada’s animal advocacy communities have a new tool at their disposal in the fight to end the euthanization of pets in shelters. Jeromie Williams, Director of Operations for Pet Pardons Canada has announced that the US based Pet Pardons Facebook application has expanded to allow its members from across both the United States and Canada to post profiles of animals in shelters, advocate on their behalf and facilitate in their safe adoption.
“The response to the Pet Pardons application has been so overwhelmingly successful and positive in the US that it just made sense to expand the scope into Canada,” Jeromie Williams said “especially at a time of great importance for the Quebec region battling puppy mills and animal rights reforms.”
Pet Pardons has been responsible for the successful adoption of over 6,000 pets since its launch in December of 2010 and has amassed over 260,000 followers on Facebook who are ready to help advocate for an animal in need at a moment’s notice.
Animals are entered into the Pet Pardons Facebook application by shelter volunteers, shelter owners, veterinarians and every day citizens and include dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and even chickens. Anyone can become an animal advocate with a few simple clicks of a mouse.
Pet Pardons allows its members to help pets by clicking the “Advocate” button on each pet’s profile, which places the pet’s bulletin on the user’s wall, allowing others to see the pet and advocate for it. As the number of shares increases, so do the chances of the pet being viewed by someone who can help or adopt.
“There is no doubt in my mind,” said Jeromie Williams “that Pet Pardons Canada will become a positive leading force in the fight to end euthanasia in shelters across the nation, and will become a household name synonymous with advocacy and education.”
