For every tweet and blog post featuring the #BTC4A hashtag (short for Be the Change for Animals) from October 22-27, Petco will donate $1 for rescue pets – up to $5000 – at BarkWorld!
This is one of those topics that gets me right here. Pictured above is Trex. He’s one of our adoptable dogs at Dog House Adoptions, one of roughly 30 who we’ve offered shelter from the streets in Rensselaer County, NY since our founding 6 months ago.
I know, first hand, how much small, local rescue does on-the-ground in communities like yours and mine. I also understand that general donations are the most helpful means of spaying, neutering, giving vaccinations, heartworm testing, and treating injuries or illness. Yes, I had a hand in creating this fundraiser based on this very knowledge. Why not make these goals as easily attainable as possible?
Trex was neutered last month, and he’s ready for his new home. His story can be the story of many other rescued pets with your help. It’s so easy!

Why It Matters
Animal organizations need funds for food, vaccinations, spays, neuters, treatment of injuries and illness – expenses that adoption fees don’t fully cover. General donations allow an organization to address their most pressing needs. Together, we can raise $5000 to assist local, no-kill rescues and shelters!
We animal lovers at Be the Change for Animals, BarkWorld, Petco, and Two Little Cavaliers believe that helping rescue pets is important. We know you do too. Make the difference. Be, Blog and Tweet the Change for Animals!
The BIG WINNERS will be announced this weekend during BarkWorld’s Petco session on Saturday!
You DO NOT need to attend BarkWorld to participate.
Simply tweet or post and help us raise $5,000!
We’ll let you know who wins, right here!!
