Be the Change for Pets Challenge!


Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week Challenge Sept. 19-25 UPDATE: As noted on our BlogPaws Be the Change for Pets page, this campaign is official! Do I hear big cheers on twitter? W00t!

Best of all… we now have sponsors stepping up to help our less adoptable pets.

  • Hartz will donate $5 per post, up to $2500
  • PetSmart will donate $5 per post up to $2000
  • And more to come…

You can be one – just contact the BlogPaws Team. And, don't forget to write that blog post and share it here. [linky tool below… 27 132 163 190 201 230 and counting! Let's keep it going! W00t!]

The Goal: Help homeless pets who often get overlooked!

Check out these stats from a survey conducted by PetFinder -there are a few common categories each of these pets fall into. The most important thing is that each one of them is in need of a loving, forever home!

How You Can Help:

Go to the Be the Change for Pets Facebook page for all of the official guidelines, but the challenge is basically to promote a "less-adoptable" pet available for adoption. Use all of your influence and tweet, blog, and get this deserving pet into the limelight! It gets even better because on the Be the Change for Pets Facebook page they have many resources and tools available to you, such as a blog post template. You don't even have to be a blogger to join in with the effort! There is even a template press release to send to your local paper, or you can donate to your shelter and tell them about it on the Facebook page!

Don't forget to let everyone know about your effort!Add your blog post, Facebook post, Tweet (#BetheChange), newspaper article or other link to our Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week Challenge post so we can see our collective effort.

There is also this list of wonderful people and bloggers! (NOTE: Linky List is Now Open!)

  • Sparkle

    I am actually featuring a different special needs or less-adoptable cat every day on my blog between September 19-25! And I have already asked my readers to promote each one! I don’t know if they will ALL find homes in that time, but I hope at least a couple of them do!

  • Dorian @ Your Daily Cute

    Yay, Sparkle! That is AWESOME! I’m thinking of featuring a few, too…

  • PetsMN

    PetMN is also taking part, here’s our first post:
    We’ll be featuring a new pet each day!

  • Jillian Koeneman

    I featured Sir Dexter from the Elkhart Humane Society on my Facebook page for Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week.
    Not sure how to link to my Facebook status, but here it is in txt format.
    Jillian Koeneman: In honor of Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week, I’d like to share with you my friend Sir Dexter. He is such a sweetheart and deserves a great home. #BetheChange #ALAPW

  • Laura Goldman

    i Love Dogs is taking part! Here’s our first post:
    We’ll be featuring stories we’ve previously posted about special-needs dogs, posting new stories about some of Petfinder’s less-adoptable dogs and, on our Facebook page (, featuring pets we’d personally love to see adopted.

  • Helen Woodward Animal Center

    #95, woot! Keep up the good work everyone!

  • Annette Frey

    Biscuits by Lambchop is in, of course! Lambchop is a good ambassador for rescuing a special or challenged dog.

  • Animal Rescues Of Michigan

    I’m sorry, it’s really not that we’re brain dead, but we’re confused. We’ve been tweeting about less adoptable pets all week (actually we generally do at least one every day, and have been doing so for a while now) but we can’t figure out how to add our tweets to the list…

  • Yvonne DiVita

    @AnimalRescuesofMichigan – we so appreciate having you share in this fantastic campaign. Now that we’re closed, you can still share and help by visiting our Facebook page and posting your story there. We read all of them and our friends love reading them, too.!/bethechangeforpets?ref=ts
    Thank you, thank you, thank you, to ALL the great bloggers and pet people who took this campaign to heart. There is no reason not to CONTINUE supporting this cause. The less adoptable pets continue to need us.
    Hugs and love to all of you!
