I need suggestions for city, county and parish shelters to be able to accept donations online that do NOT require bank account information to be linked to the account.
Engagement is “Likes”, “Comments” and “Shares”. If your number of likes, comments and shares are consistently low, EdgeRank will determine that your fans are not interested in your page posts and your post will no longer appear on your fan’s Facebook wall. A person “Liking” your page is no guarantee that they will see all your posts. If a fan does not interact with your page (via likes, comments and shares) it will eventually disappear from their Facebook wall.
I’m writing this on my way back home from Denver, CO where I spent the weekend in the company of hundreds of other pet-related bloggers at a conference called Blogpaws. I’ve got a lot of new ideas. New things to write about, new ways to bring you more content that is valuable to our industry of animal shelter and rescue. New ways to promote this blog so that more of you will find it and share it with people you know in this industry. New ways to incorporate contests and giveaways to engage you.

So if you’re my friend, and you are there with me at that restaurant, and you decide that you’d rather not have all your Facebook friends know you were there, you don’t have to allow the checkin. It’s that simple.
No matter where you are, or how small your town is, volunteers are out there, and they do want to help your organization. The question is, are YOU ready to accept volunteers? Are you ready to get to know some new people and let them into your organization, to trust them with your animals and [...]
I wanted to give a big shout out and congratulations to my friends at CARA (Community Animal Rescue and Adoption) in Jackson, MS. This video posted on YouTube gives a great overview of their shelter and what they do, but also details how they’ve been able to build up their efforts through social media. CARA [...]
I am writing from Austin, Texas, at the Texas Unites for Animals conference. This is unlike any conference I have ever been to before, for a couple of reasons, and both of these reasons really impress me (excuse me while I take off my social media hat and put on my 100% animal welfare hat [...]
Since all of you animal welfare people have so much spare time (chuckle, chuckle, snort, snort), I wanted to recommend a book if you are interested in learning more about the psychology of influence. You might think this is all about sales, but we in the nonprofit world would do well to take a page [...]
I net so many great people in Pensacola, FL and Jackson, MS this weekend for the Petfinder.com Adoption Options workshops! People in the south truly are like nobody else in the USA.
