Adopt-a-Pet.com launches TwitterACritter
If not, nevermind.
But if so, Adopt-a-Pet.com wants you to visit TwitterACritter.com for the simplest way yet to help homeless animals find homes.
One click on your favorite dog, cat or other pet - there are 130,000 to choose from - and you've instantly tweeted a link to that critter's adoption site.
"TwitterACritter is a fun, easy way for people to actively save the life of a shelter pet, even if they can't adopt one themselves or afford to donate," said Abbie Moore, executive director of Adopt-a-Pet.com.
It also begs the question: Do you have the sway of celebrities Kevin Nealon, Alyssa Milano, Denise Richards, David Cook and Jillian Reynolds, whose 'Critter tweets caused a domino effect for the cause? You never know which of your followers might be considering a new pet - but not necessarily thinking about rescuing one.
"The bottom line is that if enough people see a shelter pet, that pet gets adopted," Moore said. "It's no exaggeration to say that a single tweet can save a life. Imagine the impact it would have if everyone tweeted just one critter a day!"
