The “Share a Pic, Save a Pet” app is simple:
There are over 400 stat posts on DMR. Browse the full list here.
- You enter in your location and how far out you want the app to search for pets;
- Pick your species- dog or cat and then you can drill down on the species (color, breed, size, etc);
- The app then generates a listing of the shelter pets that fit your criteria in your area and you can select up to 10 pets to display on your profile;
- Once you have selected the pets that you want to promote on your profile, the app creates a shared image folder on your profile and posts the selected photos just like you would if you created a new image folder;
There are a few additional sharing/liking/donating options at the end of the process that you can opt to do to promote the cause.
Please take a moment and use this app. It is a simple gesture, but an important one.
Did you know that over 4 million pet dogs and cats are put to sleep each year due to overpopulation?
That is a shocking stat. Yes, we need to make sure people have their pets spayed and neutered to slow this number down, but hey, these pets are here now and full of life. Why should they suffer for our negligence?
Ok, I am getting down off my soapbox now. Let me know what you think!
