GreaterGood.org Partners with Z Living's Finding Fido
|Dear Shelter or Rescue Partner:
We’re excited to announce that GreaterGood.org is teaming up with Seth Casteel (from Underwater Dogs and One Picture Saves a Life), host of Z Living’s newest original series Finding Fido, to help people and pooches live happier, healthier lives this holiday season… and beyond. We are working to promote dog adoption and to help you receive some much needed grant assistance in the process!
We want YOU to get involved!
Through the #FindingFido grant program we’ll be giving away a series of $500 cash grants to shelters and pet adoption organizations in need across the U.S. every week leading up to the premiere of Z Living’s Finding Fido on January 17.
Want to get involved? It’s easy! Simply ask your supporters to hop on Facebook or Twitter and share a photo of their pooch, tag your shelter and be sure to include the hashtag #FindingFido. Here’s an example:
Make sure your sharing preferences are set to public so that we can see your hashtags. You and your supporters can share photos beginning today*. Winners will be announced each week online and also receive an on-air mention the night of the Finding Fido premiere!
*deadline to enter is January 31, 2017
It’s a great (not to mention fun, free, and easy) way to promote your shelter and adoption, and have a chance to win a grant for your shelter!
