It goes without saying that Facebook and Twitter are handy for keeping in touch with friends and relatives around the world, but it looks like the social networking sites are doing a great thing for animal rescue
According to AnimalFriends.org.uk
, Dogs Trust, the largest dog welfare charity in the United Kingdom, has seen more than 25 pooches find homes after being advertised on one of their websites.
"It made sense to promote our rehoming appeals on our social networking sites as well as through traditional media," digital marketing manager Jacqui O'Beirne told the news outlet.
The organization currently has 15,000 Twitter followers and more than 100,000 Facebook fans. It's there that users can look at photos and videos of rescue animals and get a sense of who they are.
According to its website
, Dogs Trust reports that every year the organization takes in 16,000 dogs within their 17 rehoming centers around the United Kingdom. They are also happy to report that no healthy pooch is ever put down.
