Social Media for Rescues: May 2021
I'm excited about May's opportunities to engage with the community. There's a lot of good reasons to celebrate and to be much more "pawsitive" in our overall communication. Social media doesn't have to be a huge burden, and if we engage our supporters more frequently with things that are going on, we aren't always pinging them exclusively when we "need" something.
I put together this list of upcoming global hashtags and trends that I hope will inspire some of our rescue partners in their content creation this month. If you see a day and a global hashtag that you want to use, go ahead! Use your own photos and then tag #dogsbondgame so we can like and boost your post!
CALL TO ACTION
Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are still listing us as robots when we like/follow as many of the rescues as we do - so please like/follow us using your social media first so we can hit that "Follow Back" button.
