Recently I've become involved with an organization called The Homeless Pet Foundation that works to find homes for homeless animals through the establishment of Homeless Pet Clubs. I have been asked to start a club here at (Name Removed). Homeless Pet Business Clubs give organizations the ability to leverage their social networking abilities to find adoptableanimals loving homes.  It costs nothing but your time yet the results are priceless!

It's easy. First the club first sponsors either a dog or a cat in the Homeless Pets Foundation or their partner shelters. Appropriately, we have sponsored a dog named Stryker. See the attached flyer. Stryker is at the Cherokee County Animal Shelter in Canton. Then club members spread information about the sponsored animal in their local community using personal relationships, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc., and hopefully adopt out the animal to a loving home. The Homeless Pets Foundation firmly believes that every animal in its program has a home in the community, but a lack of communication often means willing adoptees never meet the animal. The Homeless Pets Foundation clubs hope to change this.

The Homeless Pets Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1998 by Dr. Michael Good, an Atlanta veterinarian who saw a need to create an organization that could assist animal shelters and pet owners in need. Many of you have heard Dr. Good on the radio Friday mornings. In the Atlanta area alone, there are more than 100,000 animals destroyed each year for lack of a home.The Foundation provides critical medical care, food, foster care and comfort to these homeless animals. Since late in 2002 the Homeless Pets Foundation has placed nearly 10,000 animals in loving homes. For more information visit http://www.homelesspetclubs.org For those of you with kids please talk to your schools about starting a Homeless Pet Club in your kids' classrooms. The benefits are wonderful and the results are magic.

So, let's use the flyer, start spreading the news, and find Stryker a home.

Thanks,
