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!

VOCAL is following the AVMA's guidance and as a result, we have paused our spay/neuter TNR program during this pandemic. Unfortunately, spay/neuter surgery presents a challenge with regard to maintaining social distancing guidelines, and it also requires use of many of the same resources which are so desperately needed in the human medical field at this time. This decision was not made lightly, but we feel that humans will be able to best help community cats if we do everything in our power to assist in the fight for human life at this time.
So with kitten season right around the corner, how can we all still help? The poster below shares some meaningful ways that everyone can contribute to improving the future for cats in Marion County.
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

First thank you for all you do to help all the furbabies in our community. Also thank you for helping me trap and spay/neuter some of our feral cats. Thank you Tracy! I am curious though how TLC/Petsnip is staying open and doing surgeries.

Tonight we bring you our last group of 3 dogs that are looking for foster care! Over the last two weeks in response to COVID-19 we have worked to move our dogs from our kennels into foster care. We had amazing response and were able to move 25 dogs. At the end of last week, we still had 9 dogs looking for foster care. So we decided to turn to our community to find them each a foster.

Introducing: Jayce, Peanut & Jazmine.

Now is a great time to foster. We provide all the food, pet supplies and medical care. All you need to do is provide and safe and loving home. Please join our team as a foster by submitting an application here: www.vocalforpets.org/paperwork

Much thanks to you all for everything you do ...

VOCAL is amazing!

Thankyou!

Now I just need a car

We're back with our second group of dogs looking for foster care during COVID-19!! If you missed it, yesterday we shared our goal of getting our remaining 9 kennel dogs into foster care. We have already moved 25 but don't want to give up on our last 9.

Introducing: Mikey, Baloo and Keylo! Now is a great time to bring a pet into our home. They provide distraction, companionship and comfort during a difficult time in our country. If you aren't able to foster, please at least help us by sharing this post.

Shared on my neighborhood page! Wish we could help but we already have our hands full!

Can’t take a male.

The time has come to wean the Shades of Green Litter from their momma and give her some well-deserved space. Our staff thought it would help them settle down for the night to hear a bedtime story, so Ms. Tracy read aloud to them. What book did they request, you ask? Clifford, of course!
What is the family bedtime story of choice in your household?
Comment below, we'd love to hear!

Over the last 2 weeks our volunteer and foster group has really stepped forward to move as many of our kennel dogs into foster care. We have moved a total of 25 dogs out of their kennels and into foster care. This is a HUGE accomplishment and we are so proud of our team! With saying that, we still have 9 dogs we are looking to place in foster care. We will be sharing them over the next few days in groups of 3 to help advocate for them. Below, you will see our first three: Roscoe, Gil Blythe and Brahmin.

We are now turning to our community and asking YOU to step forward and help foster. Now is a great time to bring a pet into our home. They provide distraction, companionship and comfort during a difficult time in our country. If you aren't able to foster, please at least help us by sharing this post.

Pebbles wants someone to adopt her and take her to Peachwave again!

Tiki gets only carrots and blueberries as treats. No "people" food. I want to keep this little Coton slim, happy and around a long time.🥰

Olaf is craving “ Whatever is in the kitchen”

Izzy is almost small enough to be a donut herself! 😍

Big Lee's burnt ends and the Kathy !!!

Well. . . now I'm craving DD too!!
