Raise $5000 for Rescue Pets This Week – Just Tweet and Post! #BTC4A


For every tweet and blog post featuring the #BTC4A hashtag (short for Be the Change for Animals) from October 22-27, Petco will donate $1 for rescue pets – up to $5000 – at BarkWorld!

Roxie – Available for adoption through Minnesota Sheltie Rescue

Now this is a fundraiser I can get behind!

Rescues don’t see donations of this size every day. Heck, they are lucky to even see it in a year!

Having worked with my rescue group, Minnesota Sheltie Rescue, for over a year now. I can vouch for the impact a donation like this would have on one rescue, much less three.

I know, first hand, how much my small, local rescue does in my community. So many small rescues are doing the same thing across these United States. They help so many animals in need and could help so many more if only they had the money to do so. I understand the impact generous donations have on the work they do.

The money you donate pays for spaying, neutering, vaccinations, dental care, heartworm testing, and treating injuries or illness. Why not make these goals as easily attainable as possible?

Roxie was saved just over a month ago and is now ready for her new home. Her story can be the story of many other rescued pets with your help. It’s so easy!

ACT NOW!

  • Tweet this now through Saturday, October 27th at 11 AM (EST) :

  • Blog about what rescue means to you, now through Saturday, October 27th at 11 AM (EST). Add #BTC4A to your post title. Add your post link (not just your domain) to the blog hop list below to be counted. Bonus: Each time your post is tweeted, you’ll earn more money for rescue pets!
  • Nominate your favorite no-kill 501(c)3 rescue or shelter at the Petco booth through Friday, October 26th! (BarkWorld Attendees only.)

Why It Matters

Animal organizations need funds for food, vaccinations, spays, neuters, treatment of injuries and illness – expenses that adoption fees don’t fully cover. General donations allow an organization to address their most pressing needs. Together, we can raise $5000 to assist local, no-kill rescues and shelters!

We animal lovers at Be the Change for Animals, BarkWorld, Petco, and Two Little Cavaliers believe that helping rescue pets is important. We know you do too. Make the difference. Be, Blog and Tweet the Change for Animals!

The BIG WINNERS will be announced this weekend during BarkWorld’s Petco session on Saturday!

You DO NOT need to attend BarkWorld to participate.
Simply tweet or post and help us raise $5,000!
We’ll let you know who wins, right here!!
