Be The Change for Pets


Welcome to the BlogPaws focus on Be the Change for Pets

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?

BlogPaws Co Founders Be the Change for PetsWhen BlogPaws was born, in those fall days of 2009, Tom Collins, Yvonne DiVita and Caroline Golon knew they wanted to make a difference to pets everywhere. The goal wasn’t merely to bring pet bloggers and brands together, although that was a big part of it all.

The ultimate goal was to make a difference in the world of pets, everywhere.

Be the Change for Pets was born out of a desire to show the world the value of the human-animal bond. To that end, over the years, BlogPaws has contributed money, goods, and services to more than a dozen different shelters/rescues. The idea isn’t to talk about us and what we’ve done, but to support our community and share what they’ve done. That includes supporting and sharing when a pet brand steps up.

You’ll see more of that in the coming months – sharing some of the events and stories we’re told. We curate from the community and we work with the caring people of many different brands, all to make sure our Be the Change for Pets efforts are recognized and shared, everywhere they can be!
