The Importance of Sharing

Mama always taught you the importance of sharing, but chances are she didn't mean THIS kind of sharing! (Although we are positive that she would certainly approve). Chances are, you have Facebook, Twitter, and other forms of social media. 

Did you know that you can actually "share" pictures of homeless pets featured on shelters' and rescues' websites on your own page? If you did know that, AWESOME! Now, get to sharing! Tell them Project R.E.A.C.H. sent you! ;)

If you weren't aware, we want to give you a step by step guide to how you can share a post/ picture. Why is it important, you ask? Social media is an extremely valuable tool for networking on the behalf of animals in our communities, across our country, and around the world. The simple act of sharing a post can extend a post's reach by thousands of people, meaning that the pet, shelter, or rescue you are supporting can get new exposure that will help them find the furever homes they deserve and will help them to interact with other animal advocates who will be able to assist their cause! :) Pretty cool, right? 

All things considered, if you take a few minutes out of each day to share pictures of homeless pets, to share statuses of shelters and rescues in need of supplies, to share the picture of a lost or found pet, and to simply put social media to work for a good cause, awesome things can happen! Homeless pets can find new homes, shelters and rescues can get the support and supplies that they so desperately need, and lost or found pets can be reunited with their families. It doesn't get better than that.

Sharing is a simple way to give back and it DOESN'T COST A THING! :)


1. If you are on a computer or lap top or mobile device and see a status or picture you'd like to share, chances are there are three "buttons" beneath it: "Like," "Comment," and "Share."

2. Click the share button and it will generate a status for you. If you want to write something in addition to the post, feel free to write it in the status box.

3. Click post.

4. Repeat!! :)

Note: If the picture is seemingly missing a "Share" button beneath it, you can still share it by clicking on the picture and then clicking "Share" from your phone (if you have an Android.) 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!! :)

Happy Sharing!!
