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!

I heard they had u guys working on some of the Rally signs.. that's GREAT !!!

Is there a fee to go to that training and facility?

Remember Shep?
We posted about him a little while ago, trying to find a loving home in which to spend the rest of his senior years. Today, we're happy to provide this heart-warming update. This special family came to us, specifically looking to adopt older dogs. Not only did they welcome Shep into their home, but they also adopted Dixie, another one of our sweet senior dogs. Both Shep and Dixie were transferred to VOCAL's care earlier this year from Marion County Animal Services, and we know they will be just as excited to see this update as we are to provide it! As you can see, Shep and Dixie are living the good life these days, with 5 acres to roam, and all the love they have always deserved. We couldn't imagine a happier ending. ❤️

What a great day! We had our first surgery day at our clinic today, and did 28 community cat surgeries with a staff of mostly volunteers, including 2 of our founders, Kate and Lauren.

We want to say a big thank you to the veterinarians, Dr. Love in surgery, Dr. Isaza in prep, and Dr. Fleck in anesthesia who helped our team accomplish this big goal. Thank you to Tracy, Molly, and Carla, for teching today. 28 cats are no longer contributing to the homeless pet problem, and, after a few days of recovery, will be returned to their colonies by our TNR team. 🐱🐱🐱❤️❤️❤️

If you are caring for community cats and need help with trapping and sterilization, please fill our the TNR assistance application on your website at: www.vocalforpets.org/paperwork

👀 When you realize fall has finally arrived outside!

We know there are a lot of events going on in the area today and tomorrow, and we'd love to see pictures in the comments below of everyone out and about enjoying this perfect fall weather with their pets! 🐾📸👇

That is a talented kitty!!!💕❤️

Not able to foster? Dog walking at the shelter not a good fit, either? There are lots of other ways to help out as a VOCAL volunteer. One of those ways is assisting with transporting animals. Yesterday, we needed help transferring several dogs to our shelter from our friends at Marion County Animal Services. (We try to mainly intake our dogs from MCAS in order to help them free up kennel space for community animals and strays.) We put out the call and our volunteers were able to pick up our new intakes and give them a ride to our location. Transport volunteers help bring our animals to our shelter, but they also bring our animals to and from adoption events, vet checks, and community outreach events. If being a transport volunteer sounds like a good fit for you, you can fill out the volunteer application at vocalforpets.org/paperwork/. This senior chocolate lab, along with the several very sweet younger dogs pictured here will be available for adoption through VOCAL soon once they are fully vetted. You can always see a list of our currently available adoptable animals by visiting our website at www.vocalforpets.org ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you for supporting MCAS! 🙂

Would love to do some volunteering with ya'll. Can't right now, tho, no transportation, no pets on lease. In future tho, I will apply, God Bless for caring for our innocent babies.

Yes! Transport is a very valuable commodity for rescues. So happy they could be transported and I agree with Lindsay Layendecker, thank you for supporting our county shelter. ♡

That’s right!!!💕❤️

I sent a message about wanting to volunteer but no one message me back. Would love to help love doggies....

Thank you to The Yard Stop for coming out today and getting our front patio ready for pavers! We appreciate you donating the labor for this project. We also are very grateful to our donor who gifted us the patio pavers. We are so excited to get rid of our sandy patio and have a nice new pavered area for our adoption meet and greets. The pavers will help us keep the front patio much more sanitary and will prevent spread of parasites.

Stay tuned for photos of the completed project!

I took him to lunch on Sunday. He's a perfect gentleman.

Boy what a Cutie-Pie!!!❤️

No free they use free dogs as bait dogs

For our foster families, the act of fostering is often a family affair. "Pumpkin" and "Spice" have already learned that the best spot in the house is under the baby's highchair. Their foster says, "I know that their harnesses are upside down, but my 11 year old is their mom and she is still learning." What a wonderful way to grow up, for everyone in this photo! ♥️
If you are interested in adopting, please note that these sweet puppies won't be ready for adoption until they grow a bit and have their spay/neuter surgery, but they will appear on our website once they are available. To see a database of our adoptable animals, or to get involved in fostering through VOCAL, please visit our website at : www.vocalforpets.org

The VOCAL Youth Council had a great morning, complete with some festive fall fun at Oak Run. Bri was there to strut her stuff while sniffing out a new home. Hopefully, her magic unicorn horn helped her cast a spell on her special someone. 🐾🦄 Thank you for including us in the event, Oak Run Canine Club! ... See MoreSee Less
