If you’re looking for an easy way to get involved with helping shelter animals, Pet Pardons is a good way to start. The goal of this Facebook application is to save shelter animals that are on death row. The intention is to get as many people as possible advocating for the pets, and through publicity, hopefully save their life and find their forever home.
Here’s how it works: Pet Pardons posts pictures of animals that are well on their way to being euthanized. By clicking on the “Advocate” button, the pet’s picture shows up on your Facebook wall, where hopefully your family and friends will see it and share it on their walls. The hope is that the more publicity the pet gets, the better the chances are that someone interested in rescuing the animal will see them.
The application provides all the vital information about the animal such as name, age, gender and what shelter the animal is located at. There are also pictures and sometimes videos, as well as personality descriptions.
Whether you’re looking to adopt a pet or you just want to do your part to help, Pet Pardons is a good place to go to. If you know of a pet that’s about to be euthanized you can also post the information onto Pet Pardons’ wall.
