I am excited to announce the launch of a new website today, Be The Change for Animals (BtC4animals.com). Inspired by BlogPaws and sponsored by This One Wild Life (@ThisOneWildLife) and GoPetFriendly (@GoPetFriendly), BtC4Animals will provide their readers with an opportunity to make the world a better place for animals. How cool is that?!

Be the Change for Animals

Why This Website?

With so many worthwhile animal causes to support, it s easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless. By banding together like-minded folks with a strong, collective voice, the goal of BtC4Animals is to ignite and accelerate the change we can make as individuals.

BtC4Animals will highlight one cause per week and provide information on how readers can help. Calls to action won’t require more than 15 minutes to complete and will typically involve actions like signing a petition or participating in a letter-writing campaign. Monetary contributions will not be solicited.

If You Have a Cause

Do you have a mission in mind? A course of action you want to champion? Submit it here! If selected, BtC4Animals will be your sounding board, your greatest cheerleader, and they will report your successes back to the community during your campaign.

If You Want to Support a Cause

Your role is simple and easy: Embrace the weekly call to action. Tweet about it, post it to Facebook, or write a blog post. Each act, each action, each person spreads the word and creates the tidal wave of public opinion needed to make a change. By following these simple steps, you can be the change that lifts our champions toward their goal!

On a Personal Note

BtC4animalsAfter meeting and spending time with Amy and Rod Burkert of GoPetFriendly.com, I shared some of the thoughts you see outlined above. The feedback was more than positive. It became collaborative. In subsequent conversations, there was an unmistakeable energy, a creative spark and the determination to bring our ideas to fruition. I focused on quarterly blog days and built the website, Amy brought weekly causes to the table and reached out to our first champion, and each of us contributed fully toward the other’s finished product. Rod’s insightful feedback completed the power of three. The result is BtC4Animals.com.

Welcome to our vision, our contribution to Be the Change, a movement with no leaders and no limits and all the possibility in the world. We hope you find it useful.
