UPDATE: AS OF SEPTEMBER 8th, 2012 – THIS DOG HAS BEEN ADOPTED!
Every quarter, bloggers unite to “Blog the Change for Animals,” by highlighting ways you can help animals without spending a dime. Blog the Change for Animals is asking all of us to help spread the word about Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue, a special online global event held on July 23, 2012 stressing the importance of dog adoption. From the BTC website, here is what you can do to help:
ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY:
- Blogging about a Dog Rescue related topic on July 23rd, 2012
- Adopting a companion: http://theshelterpetproject.org/
- Donating to a local dog rescue organization
- Fostering a dog
- Volunteering at a local shelter or rescue organization
- Sharing this post across all forms of social media and encourage others to participate!
And in line with that theme, today I am writing about just one animal in need of an adoptive home, and his name is Simon. If you are already following my blog, you know that I’ve been spreading the word about Simon, a sweet dog I tried to adopt, since sometime in May.
But what you may not know is that Simon has been in foster care since he was only four months old, when his foster mom pulled him and his litter mates from a shelter in Joplin, Missouri…
Simon is now 2 years and 3 months old. That’s twenty five months in foster. TWENTY FIVE MONTHS. IN FOSTER.
Please don’t let Simon spend his life in foster care. While he is well cared for, he is also housed in a kennel situation with other dogs at his foster home. He’s not living with a family, sharing their bedroom at night, going for walks on the beach, or using his very bright mind other than finding creative ways to flip over his food dish.
For blog the change, all I am asking is that everyone share Simon’s Story today – on Facebook, on your Blogs, on Twitter, and by E-mailing this post to your dog loving friends. You never know where his forever family might be hiding – so let’s use this great blogging community of ours to find them…and blog the change for just one dog today.
