Adopt the Internet Day: Adoptable pets take over the Internet!
On March 15, adoptable pets are taking over the Web — and I hope you’ll help. In honor of our 15th birthday, we’re asking everyone to Help Petfinder Adopt the Internet by getting online and spreading the word about pet adoption.
We’ve gotten many friends on board: ICanHasCheezBurger.com has adoptable-pet photos you can caption today, and on March 15 PeoplePets.com feature a Petfinder gallery of adoptable pets, Dogster and Catster are doing homepage takeovers, FIDOFriendly magazine is doing a 12-hour blogathon, and AOL’s Paw Nation, the Humane Society of the United States, PetSugar, PetSide and many others have committed to blogging about pet adoption. (Check out our Adopt the Internet Day homepage for a list of our partners.)
But we need your help too. Here are some easy ways you can help spread the word about adoptable pets on March 15.
