Become a Facebook Fan of Second Chance!

Tasha loves Facebook!

Second Chance Humane Society would like to help shelter pets like me get a Home for the Holidays.  We are hoping you can help us.  We are initiating a little experiment in internet social media that we hope will spread the word about all the adoptable and adorable pets waiting for their forever homes here at Second Chance.  It is a quick and easy as a way for you to make a difference this Holiday Season in saving the lives of pets in need.  The more pets we can work together to find new homes for results in additional pets that can then be rescued through the Second Chance Shelter. 

This social media experiment simply involves putting our Facebook page to its intended application of networking and expanding our community connections and outreach efforts.  As such, we are inviting all our Pet Column readers to become fans of Second Chance Humane Society! 

Through Facebook you can help us spread the word on adoptable pets seeking new families as well as other community services that Second Chance provides.  You can also help us to promote our Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance Program, recruit foster care givers, promote our events, etc.  You can also share in our success stories and give us feedback on how we are doing.  We place a great value on our community connections and hope that Facebook will be another avenue for us to interact with our animal loving communities

Additionally, our Facebook page has photo albums which give you easy access to the wonderful photos of our many adoptable pets (photos by Real Life Photographs) which you can share with others.  The photos are much larger than we can display on our website page and thus really help to promote the unique characteristics of all the various shelter pets.

Beyond helping our pets find Homes for the Holidays, becoming a Facebook fan of Second Chance also gives you access to updates on our events and news.  If you are a Facebook member simply do a Facebook search for Second Chance Humane Society, once you find our page click on the “become a fan” button.  Done.  If you are not a Facebook member – we have no intention of pushing Facebook on you – but consider our invitation if you ever do venture into the Facebook world…

As I write this Pet Column there are 73 wonderful Fans listed on our Facebook page.  I would like to see that number at least double after this Column is printed…it truly could be the way that I find my new family.  As a lovely, young, and exuberant Retriever/Lab mix I can’t think of anything better than being with my new family for the Holidays…

Call the Second Chance Helpline at 626-2273 to report a lost pet, learn about adopting a homeless pet, or about the SCHS Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance, Volunteer & Foster Care, or other Programs.  Visit our shelter pets online:  Direct Pet Column questions to:  kelly@secondchancehumanesociety.orgPhoto by Real Life Photographs.
