ASPCA Social Networks: Get Involved Now!
Want to be the first to find out about ASPCA arrests, raids and contests? There’s a whole galaxy of online options to help you stay connected up-to-the-minute with the ASPCA! Social networking sites are great for you and for uswe like them because you can give us instant feedback and we can respond back to you just as quickly. All of the following networking tools are free and help the ASPCA further our efforts to prevent cruelty to animals, so get involved now if you’re not already!
Twitter is hot right now! The ASPCA posts 8 to 10 instant animal welfare-related updates (or tweets) daily to our Twitter page, engaging our animal-loving subscribers (including rock legend Ozzy Osbourne) all day long. Check out our tweets on pet care tips and fighting animal cruelty, and post your own adoptable animals! You can also comment on News Alert using the Twitter hash tags below each article.
Facebook is home to our fan page and application that lets you virtually adopt our pets, and we’re giving away great prizes to Facebook app users each month!
MySpace lets you put an ASPCA donation widget right on your profile and download tons of other cool stuff, like banners, custom layouts and cute animal wallpaper for your computer.
Flickr is where we post tons of photos of our adoptable pets and of national and local New York City events, like our annual Go Orange for Animals Celebration and our Shelter Dog Talent Show! Comment on our photos and tell us what you’d like to see more of.
