Never Underestimate the Power of Social Networking! Animal Saved by Facebook Posts!

Well, this story convinced me.  Never underestimate the power of social networking.  And, this should help promote some of the "good" things that can happen when social networking is used for the right reasons!  The story "Rescued from a Storm Drain. All because of Facebook" by Andrea, and posted on one of my favorite blogs, For the Love of the Dog, just made me think about all the bad press that some social networking sites receive.  It's not that often that you get to hear about the good stuff! 

It's always nice to know that "facebook" and other social links can offer some rewarding things too instead of always coming out on the receiving end of those that simply don't understand the power of the press!  What a great story!  With all the sad stuff reported constantly about animal abuse and overcrowded shelters, I felt this heartwarming story would offer a well-deserved "good feeling" break to everyone today!

It warms the heart to see how good folks will work together for a worthy cause, even if it is in the middle of the night!  To date, the rescued animal has still not been identified, and, since the animal ran away after being freed, we'll probably never know what it was.  But, we do know that because of the efforts of some good willed neighbors and the officials called to the scene, the story has a very happy ending!  Congrats to all who were involved in this great rescue.

I'm sure that this is not the only story of it's kind.  I'd love to hear about any other stories like this one where social media has played the part of the hero!  Send us a comment on any that you know of!  I'll bet there are plenty of stories out there that involve rescues, adoptions and lots of other interesting things that have taken place on these pages.  Share some with us!
I'll also be starting a new page for this blog very soon.  I'll be covering tips for pet care.  Drop me a line if you have any suggestions for stories and tips on caring for our animals friends.  Dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, fish....whatever!  The new page should be up within the next few days, so check back soon!

Maxwell and Dee!
