Pet Social Media

People posting pictures of their pets on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat has caused increased attention in pet social media. Because of this, the team at VOCAL has established its presence on Facebook.

We think social media is a great tool for VOCAL. We use it to post photos of our animals that are in need of adoption. This helps to give these animals greater exposure and increases their chances of being adopted.

Once we post a photo and offer information about the pet, those who follow us on Facebook begin liking the photo and commenting. Some even share the photo post, giving us even greater exposure. We always appreciate those who comment about and share our photos.

In addition to photos of our available pets, we also post stories and links to articles that pertain to what we do here at VOCAL. We like to help inform our followers on issues that are close to us and our cause.

We also post photos and information about upcoming pet adoption events that we are participating in. We hope you will help us get the word out about these events.

When we get photos of our pets at their new homes, we especially love to share those. As much as we love our animals, we love it when we can post a photo of a family adopting a new dog or a family enjoying time with a foster pet.

If you are following the pet social media trend, follow us on social media and join the conversation. We look forward to connecting with you!

Brrr!
It's chilly out there today, But Charlie would love to be curled up with you, all toasty warm under some blankets. As you can see, he knows how to make himself right at home with a good pillow. These photos were taken during some recent outings with his shelter buddy, who reports that one of his favorite thing to do on her day trips with him is to visit the local horse show scene at HITS.
His shelter buddy wants you to know that...
"Charlie is a Great dog, he rides great in the car! I took him home to meet my cats and he didn't mind, he just wanted to lay on the couch. I've taken him to Santos trail and he was non-reactive to bikes. He loves my 10 yr old daughter. He's great on a leash. I've taken him twice to horse park, he does not mind the horses, no barking and he just wants to greet everyone that comes near!! He is super friendly and would make a great family dog."
If you can envision Charlie in your life, please head over to www.vocalforpets.org and fill out the application. He's a recent graduate of MADTA's obedience classes, and still a young guy (around 2) with his best years ahead of him, let's make them great!

Angel is out soaking up the sunshine in the play yard with one of her favorite volunteers this afternoon. She is truly one of the sweetest dogs at our facility, and we can't wait for the day when she can sunbath in her very own yard. How could anyone resist her smile? ... See MoreSee Less

She is also obedience trained and if you know how to give the commands properly, she will respond beautifully.

Wow, she surely is an Angel‼️☺️🧡

I LOVE HER SM SHE IS SOOOOO AMAZING 💙💙💙

She loves to chase tennis balls as well. When she is finally getting worn our she loves to give you hugs..Nothing like being hugged by a 50 plus lb Staffie..LOL

Shes adorable

You guys should do a video like this about Gidget and Mary Wray. Yes, I'm a little biased (I'm Mary's son), but I also work in marketing and know the power of a viral video when it comes to getting more supporters. 😉 www.facebook.com/thedodosite/videos/468966347125197/UzpfSTY1NTExMTMyNjoxMDE1NzYzMDg3NTU3NjMyNw/

A recent visit for our Doggie Diplomats Bailey and Bo at The Bridge at Ocala... This pair has been visiting residents there for over 2 years now, and we never get tired of seeing the photos of their visits! Bo (the black and white dog), is actually a VOCAL alumni. He had a pretty rough start in life, so seeing him come full circle with his adoptive mom in this role is exceptionally special. ❤️ Bailey enjoys the affection from the residents, but doesn't normally lay down like she did on this day. Clearly, something amazing happens during these moments. ... See MoreSee Less

Nacho was out on the town with his shelter buddy, stepping into the New Year with a renewed hope for finding his forever home. He was busy making friends, and enjoying a tall "pup-achino" at Starbucks this weekend. He said to please tell everyone that he is a good boy, and he has a ☕️"latte" ❤️ love to give!
