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!

Clinic News! Dentals anyone?

A few weeks ago we had our new dental machine delivered to our clinic. We are so excited to add this to our list of services for our rescue partners. Right now, our clinic services our TNR program and area 501c3 rescue groups. Being in animal welfare, we see how important it is for dogs (especially small ones) to have clean, healthy teeth. Having our own dental equipment now allows us to help other rescues as well as our own rescue animals.

Take a peak at the dental before and after for our little Biscuit who is available for adoption. Now, her teeth will be cleaned and her future adopters will not have to worry about taking on the expense of a dental with their veterinarian. Plus, more importantly, Biscuit has a clean mouth and is free of any pain from teeth that needed to be removed (she had 8 extractions!).

Are you a 501c3 rescue close by? Are you interested in dental services for animals currently in your adoption program? Send an email to clinic@vocalforpets.org to learn more about our pricing and services we offer to our rescue partners.

If you have extended hours on dental. I can volunteer for free after work. I been a dental hygienist for 27 years and I can bring instruments to clean under gums also.

The general public also would benefit from cost effective dental care for our animals!

Awesome y'all!

Warning! Cute kittens ahead.

Our clinic TNR program is in full swing this summer. Occasionally, we have friendly kittens come in through our program. When we have a foster available and space within the adoption program, we are able to intake the kittens.

That’s how these little nuggets snuck their way into VOCAL. Meet the “Sleeping Beauty” kittens.

Would you like to adopt a kitten? These girls are 4 weeks old but can receive applications now and will be ready to go to their new homes in about 4 weeks.

Salsa update! 🐱💃🏻❤️

Salsa has continued to improve with his foster (who just happens to be the vet who saved his life, Dr. Isaza.) He uses the litter box, purrs, and has a wonderful appetite.

Due to the severity of his infection, we were concerned he may have trouble using his litter box and his remaining back leg, but he has proven that nothing will get him down.

Salsa will lose his right ear, which lost blood flow when he became septic prior to his surgery, and still has some strength to regain. But, we are confident he will live a full and happy life.

He had the best surgical team. And a lot of people working hard on sending positive vibes and prayers.

Oh my goodness. What a poor little kitten! So lucky to be found and cared for.

Oh my gosh! My dad is looking for a kitten that possibly was caught in his engine. Is this what happened to this baby? I will send him this picture. He has been looking and agonizing for a week, and so has the feral mom he takes care of.

Poor lil punkin! Thank you to all for saving him!

Prayers Salsa Thumper - you were blessed so you could be a blessing 💙🐾

Prayers for a speedy complete recovery. Thanks for all you do.

Prayers...his tail is bigger than he is !

Good Morning sweet boy!

Love the folded ear, so cute

Praise Be...♥️🐾🐾

So thankful!!

Thankyou all !

What a day at our clinic! One of our volunteers found a kitten with an injured leg on the side of the road. We quickly realized that the kitten had a bad injury to his rear leg and groin, and had necrotic tissue and infection that was making him septic. Our staff came to the conclusion that "Salsa" needed his leg removed as soon as possible to help rid his body of infection.

With a temperature of only 92 (normal temperature is around 101), our team had to stabilize Salsa first, before we could perform his surgery. After warming him up,
Dr. Isaza and Karen got to work and kept him warm and stable through the removal of his left rear leg, as well as debridement of the necrotic tissue in his groin area.

With his emergency surgery complete, Salsa woke up hungry and ready to eat, (which is what you see in this video.) While he is not totally out of the woods, we are hoping that Salsa will continue to improve with good food, fluids, and IV antibiotics.

Our clinic is not an emergency clinic, but we were fortunate to be able to call on one of our fabulous veterinarians and clinic staff to help this sweet boy and hopefully save his life. We could not do this without the support of our community. If you would like to donate to our mission and continue to support cats like Salsa, please visit vocalforpets.org/to-our-goals-and-their-future/ and make a general donation. ❤
