Twitter Up for Dog Rescue
Join the Animal Rescue Tweet Blast on February 28
At nine-years-young, Cooger is ready for his forever home.

In the January issue of Bark, we wrote about how Dogs Trust in the United Kingdom found a home for a shelter dog using only a brief message on Twitter, the social networking service. It was a first for Dogs Trust, and maybe a first-ever. Well, good news travels fast, especially via the Internet, and the folks at Animal Rescue Online plan to turn up the volume on shelter adoptions with a Tweet Blast--a whole lotta Twitter messages (no more than 140 characters each)--on Saturday, February 28, 2009.

It's actually pretty simple to participate. Visit Petfinder to find a homeless pet you think deserves a good home. Copy and past the URL from his or per profile page into a Twitter message. (The TinyURL tool will help you condense long URLs to tweet-able size.) I'm thinking of sending a shout-out for Cooger, an irresistible Australian Cattle Dog looking to spend his gravy years with a loving family.
