Petfinder Big Birthday Bash, July 15-17, 2011

Today is one of four annual Blog the Change Days, where pet bloggers promote their favorite people, organizations, and events that improve the lives of animals in communities all over. The girls of Champion of My Heart decided to promote Petfinder’s Big 15th Birthday Bash. The goal? To get 15,000 pets adopted this weekend. Whew!

If you know anyone … and I mean ANYONE … who *might* be in the market for a new furry friend, please, please send them this link to the Petfinder Big Birthday Bash page [link =], where they can:

  • Use the shelter-search tool to find local participating adoption groups
  • Browse some of the most-adoptable pets taking part in the celebration
  • Download customizable flyers to promote adoption events
  • Make a donation to the Foundation to help homeless pets
  • Sign Petfinder’s Birthday Card, including a photo of your pet

I checked out local happenings and found 17 shelters and rescue groups in Colorado taking part, including our favorite Humane Society of Boulder Valley (where we adopted Lilly, our canine heroine).

So … happy, happy birthday, Petfinder. I cannot imagine 21st-century pet adoptions without you!

And, fans and friends, thanks for learning more about Petfinder’s Big Birthday Bash Pet Adoption Extravaganza. I hope you’ll share the news on Facebook, Google+ and such. Have a great weekend.!

I’m so excited – my sister and her family adopted a sweet new puppy from their local shelter over the weekend! They went to the store for fish food and came home with a new family member. 🙂

    That is such great news, Amy. A friend came very close to adopting from a participating rescue over the weekend, but something fell through. So, her family is still looking.

Even people who aren’t ready to adopt end up doing more research after they see all the great pets at Petfinder. Of course, how hard is it to market furry love?

17 shelters in your area alone? That’s so awesome, Roxanne!! I can’t wait to see how many pets are adopted this weekend! Any number is a good number, but a big push like this always, always helps.

Thanks for Blogging the Change!

Thanks for participating in Blog the Change Day and for highlighting Petfinder’s Big Birthday Bash. Petfinder has made such a huge impact on adoption awareness by helping to facilitate 17 million adoptions in 15 years. I am constantly meeting people who say they found their pet through Petfinder. I hope they achieve their goal of 15,000 adoption this weekend. Thanks again!
