Blog the Change for Animals is Coming - Join Our Blog Hop! #BtC4A

Hello, and Happy Monday! I have some exciting news to share with you today.

Those of you who have been blogging for a while may be familiar with “Blog the Change for Animals”, a blogging campaign that takes place four times a year. You also may have noticed that at one time there were active Blog Hops for this day, but they seemed to have fizzled out. Well, guess what? Lexy and I are joining our friends Olive, Sophie, Dexter, Woodrow and Harley at Three Chatty Cats to co-host a Blog Hop for the next Blog the Change for Animals day! We’re so excited!


Okay, in case someone is wondering what Blog the Change for Animals is, let me tell you. Well, I’m going to tell you what it means to us, anyway. Four times a year bloggers write posts about things that make life better for animals. That’s pretty much it in a nutshell! The topic of your post doesn’t have to be about rescue, it can be about anything, for example: 

  • Is there an organization you admire that fights for animal rights? 
  • Or a person or cause that fights against puppy mills or declawing cats? 
  • Is there someone who you think is a hero for animals? 
  • What about stronger legislation against animal cruelty? 

Here are some ideas from Olive, Sophie, Dexter, Woodrow, and Harley: 

  • Do you volunteer at an animal shelter?
  • Have you adopted your best friend and you want to promote adoption to others?
  • Maybe you perform trap-neuter-return in your area.
  • Maybe you want to highlight a special sanctuary in your area.
  • Know an outstanding individual who helps animals?
  • Perhaps you want to do a round-up of helpful resources for animal advocacy.

Last time we wrote about animal testing, and how to know the products you buy are cruelty-free.  We’re also thinking of writing about Meatless Mondays (again, now that we have more readers) and how not eating meat one day a week makes a difference in farm animals lives. The possibilities are endless! You can read our previous posts here. Did you know we won a Certificate of Excellence from CWA for this post on Tabby’s Place?  Last year we wrote about one of our favorite shelters, Pet Animal Welfare Society for this special day.


Okay, so now I just know you have a great idea and you’re going to write a fab post about it. Then what do you do? Don’t worry, it’s easy-peasy to join! Trust me. If our mom can figure it out, anyone can! (But don’t tell her I said that. Thanks.) 

  1. Grab the badge below and insert it into your post.
  2. Publish your post on April 15th!
  3. Then visit either Three Chatty Cat’s blog or our blog and submit your post link to the blog hop list. (The entry link will open on April 15, 2018 at 12:01am ET.)
  4. Then start hopping and read the other posts in the hop and comment when you can. A kind word goes a long way and can mean a lot to someone who put a lot of effort into their post. and we can all be even more inspired to help animals!
  5. Share on social media! Share your post all over the place and encourage people to read all of the other great stories.
