This was kind of alarming so I asked him to elaborate. He pointed out we may have a competition to see who can show the saddest picture of the neediest pet in order to get Chances funded.
Well, darn it - that was not the point of creating Pet Chance. It should be among the happiest places on the Internet because we're saving pets here! So it got me to thinking...
What do we need to do at Pet Chance to make people smile?
Here's what I came up with so far:
- Before & After pictures - so we can celebrate the healing of a pet
- Conversations - so owners can report progress on their pets' treatment
- Encouragement - some way for everyone to send kind words to the pet (and the owner)
But there must be other things we can do... got any bright ideas? If so, please post them in the comments for this post. If we use your ideas, we'll let you know!
