PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - DENVER -- On October 25, 2012, BlogPaws and World Vets, with the help of Dr. Jessica Vogelsang, have joined forces to create The Blogger Disaster Response Network to help animals in need during times of disaster.
Blogger Disaster Response Network
Bloggers and micro-bloggers are invited to join the network, which is designed to assist pets in need and make positive impact for animals everywhere when disaster strikes.
Anyone with an account on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, or any other social media channel, can participate to help animals. Bloggers are also invited to register and assist in spreading the word to their networks of followers and readers. Many times, World Vets sets up a "chip-in" and sharing the chip-in is a way to share the message and help the cause.
World Vets was formed in 2011 after the earthquake and tsunami hit the Japanese coastline and left thousands of animals homeless and in danger. In the days after that disaster, BlogPaws created the Paws for Japan Blog Hop, a campaign to help spread the word about disaster relief. It helped World Vets bring in a great deal of money on short notice. Based on that success, the Blogger Disaster Response Network was launched.
Signing up means that people will be sharing their basic information (name, email and blog are required) with BlogPaws and World Vets. This information will be safe in the network and BlogPaws will only contact people via broadcast email when a disaster happens and the word must get out immediately. Those who sign up can then choose whether they want to participate in spreading the word about any disaster event.
BlogPaws was one of the first companies to begin promoting pet health and welfare via social media, and the first to start a conference for pet bloggers. BlogPaws’ online community site attracts thousands of pet bloggers, pet enthusiasts, and pet people — on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Squidoo. BlogPaws has emerged as the go-to presence for reaching pet parents and is a trusted industry resource for pet people and brands to partner on projects and campaigns using social media tools.
