Thank you so much for your support of this blog and our Facebook page. We now have over 2000 fans on Facebook! – a milestone we’re going to be celebrating in a special way, so stay tuned for that announcement. And we really appreciate all the “Shares” for our blog posts. This is how we get the word out about what we’re doing and why, and get forever homes for our deserving pups. It’s an example of social media at its finest. Without you, we’re like a tree falling in the woods with no one around. Or something like that.
Along this theme, we’re going to start a regular “Spotlight On” weekly post to highlight one of our available dogs. Please help these special pups find homes by sharing these posts, that will help us move dogs from foster homes and open up spots for more dogs!
Our other big news is that we have revamped our Web page! Please take a look. It’s still a bit “bare bones” at this point, but it’s easier to get through, has a clear "who's available" page and it makes it easy to get to our other platforms and, importantly, Petfinder.
A few other things:
We monitor our Facebook page regularly, but sometimes a comment may come in with a question that we accidentally miss. To reach us with a question, you can always use our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. And we don’t take a comment such as “we want that dog” as an application. You have to actually put in an app! You can find it here: http://sighthoundunderground.com/files/forms/Application.pdf. You'll be pleased to know our ap is now "online" so no printing out and faxing. Really, the handwritten aps were a bit hard to read!
And, if you’re following a dog at one of the shelters in Spain or the Middle East that you want to adopt, please drop us a line and we’ll work to bring that dog over.
By the way, we’ve got a special guest coming later this month. Fingers crossed. More on this later.
Lastly, if there’s a topic you’d like us to cover in our blog. Something you want explained or an adopted dog you want an update on, drop us a comment and we’ll see what we can do.
