Just this week I got a request for advertising on my blog. The email already smelled fishy to me, as it was sent from gmail address with no indication who it was really from. When I requested more details it turned out that they wanted me to advertise Ebay Classifieds puppies section!
So I was going to write this post about puppy mills.
Then I came across a post my friend Dr. Huston wrote. She blogged about helping PetFinder win the Webby Awards.
I think that's a brilliant idea!
Winning this award would provide more exposure to PetFinder and in turn promote dog adoptions.
More people might adopt. And people who adopt don't buy puppy mill dogs.
More adoptees, less puppy mills.
So I am joining Dr. Huston's cause in asking you to help PetFinder Win the Webby Awards.
What Are the Webby Awards?
According to the Webby Awards About page, “The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, the Webbys are presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, honoring excellence in over 100+ Website, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video, and Mobile & App categories.”
Vote in the Webby Awards Today
The Petfinder.com iPhone App has been nominated for the Webby Awards. It’s the only pet-related app in the category, so it would be a big win for adoptable pets if the Petfinder app won.
