Use Yahoo to Save Shelter Dogs
Can Yahoo Groups Save Shelter Dogs? Expand Your Black Dog Rescue Network With a Click of A Mouse.
Most people are familiar with Yahoo as a search engine but are unaware of the free “Yahoo Groups” service. Joining Yahoo Groups can help you reach a nationwide network of rescue organizations - particulary useful if you are trying to locate a specific breed rescue to aid a dog in a local shelter. Connecting with rescue groups in other parts of the country allows you build life saving partnerships with other in your field.
To register for Yahoo Groups, follow these simple steps:
•Follow this link or paste it in your browser: http://groups.yahoo.com/
•Click on the “New to Groups - Sign up” link. You will be walked through a short registration form. Now you’re ready to register for dog rescue groups.
•In the box under “Find a Yahoo Group” enter the words “dog rescue” or search for a specific breed rescue.
•Related groups will be listed. Click on the group’s name to get details.
•Click on the “Join this Group” box in the upper right hand corner of the group description page.
•You’ll be prompted to send a request to join the group.
•Once your request has been accepted (generally with in 24-48 hours) you will have access to the group and be able to post messages with details regarding at risk dogs along with contact information and photos which will be shared with all group members.
Note: This is a great job for volunteers with even moderate computer skills who may not have time to help with adoption days or the ability to foster a dog.
