Today, I call upon your help! As many of you know, I am one of two Adoption Champions chosen by Blog Paws and Halo/Freekibble.com (the other of which is Christina Berry of The Lazy Pitbull.) You can read Blog Paw’s official announcement here to learn more details about the project.
The main idea is that I will be using my blogging skills to help promote adoption and adoptable pets. I am specifically working with Tree House Humane in Chicago, IL.
Today is an exciting day because, after a month of planning, we have our very first project date! Together with amazing photographer Victoria Sprung, we will be getting beautiful portraits of several of Tree House’s adoptable cats today. Our goal is to spread those portraits across the internet and track the results to see if quality photography really does increase a pet’s chance of finding a forever home.
This is where you come in! When the photos launch, I need your help to get them out there! Share them on Facebook, Twitter, email, Pintrest, anywhere you think people will see them and want to adopt the lovely little animals depicted therein. I want to start building that network now, so if you haven’t followed me on Twitter (@refrigeratorcat) or Facebook please do! And if you have friends that would be interested in this project, let them know!
I cannot do this without your help! So let’s prove that this project is a good one and that we, as bloggers, readers, writers, and animal lovers, can do our part to find homes for loving pets that need them.
Many thanks to Victoria Sprung. She is a wedding photographer based in Chicago, IL whose use of color is truly breathtaking. She did the FOD’s wedding portraits (as you can see here) and was a dream to work with. She is an animal lover herself and has a special affinity for black cats. Thank you, Victoria, for being our very first photographer in this project and for donating your time and skills to our cause. Your kindness is truly appreciated!
