Pin It

Facebook users: we’ve learned about a brand new application that can help save pets! The non-profit PetSmart Charities has just launched Share a Pic, Save a Pet which allows you to help save the lives of the nearly 8 million homeless pets in the U.S., transforming your own individual profile to alert your friends, family and followers about adoptable pets in your own community.

How to Use Share a Pic, Save a Pet

  • Go to http://apps.facebook.com/shareapic-saveapet/
  • Input your ZIP code.
  • Select up to 10 adoptable dogs or cats to showcase on your profile by breed, color, size and gender.
  • Adopt-a-Pet.com’s nationwide shelter database enables the application to populate your Facebook profile with photos of local pets available for adoption and links to local animal-welfare organizations where the pets available for adoption. These pictures are shared directly to your Friends’ news feeds and on your Facebook timeline.

We gave the app a try on our own pages; it was super easy to use. There’s a quick link so after you read about a particular pet, you can click a link to share on your wall:

It’s an easy, fun, and FREE way to help homeless pets in your area!
