Be The Change for Pets


Welcome to the BlogPaws focus on Be the Change for Pets

At our first BlogPaws Conference a challenge was issued: What could we, the online pet community, do to help pets in need? The BlogPaws community took up that challenge and became an advocate for pets in need, launching our Be the Change for Pets channel. Over the course of every year, we work with pet people, sponsors, and brands to raise funds for donations to animal rescues and shelters, the very organizations that need our attention and help, each and every day.

We work to feature adoptable pets, raise awareness of animal cruelty cases and recognize those pet lovers/enthusiasts who are out there diligently working to make a difference in the lives of animals everywhere, oftentimes at great expense to themselves, either in cash or time or both. At our conferences, we provide training for volunteers and shelter managers, on how to make their Be the Change for Pets work more successful.

At BlogPaws, we believe all animals can be pets, of a sort, and all animals deserve to be treated with love and respect.

Our mission for Be the Change for Pets remains:

  • Where will Be the Change for Pets lead us?
  • What can we accomplish together?
  • What can you do to help make a difference?
