Guide to using the advocacy toolkit
1. Start with your local domestic violence shelter.
Find your local domestic violence shelter at DomesticShelters.org and determine if they are pet friendly. If they are pet friendly, thank them and encourage them to reach out to receive a pet-friendly badge.
If they are not pet friendly, share details on the campaign, why it is important, and what resources exist to help their transition, and ask them to take the pledge.
2. Reach out to community leaders
Find local government officials at My Reps (datamade.us) or emergency services leaders on your municipality’s website
Contact your local humane society, animal rescues and shelters, veterinarians, and anyone who identifies as an animal welfare advocate.
3. Spread the movement!
Post on social media, tell your friends and family about the 25 by 2025 campaign, why it is important to you and why they should support it!
