A few days ago, I posted this photo on our Facebook page:
duffel bag) were ready to go and we were still short about 20 cages (ah!).
The next day I got an email from a reporter at the Toronto Star! He had seen the photo and wanted to do a short piece on our hamster explosion.
The result was in Saturday's paper:
The print version included the article with a short interview with me, and my photo taking up half the page. Pretty exciting! As of last count, 135 people had shared it on their Facebook pages. Even better, I've had tons of emails offering cages, and the shelter has received a fair few calls for donations and adoptions.
Our upcoming adoption event even got a mention!
Later that day, the shelter got a call from someone in California. They had somehow seen the article and was so impressed, they were sending a donation.
Then, that evening, someone posted on the Facebook page to tell us that we were on Cute Overload:
The photo is of Millie's babies (they've grown a bit since I last posted them). I sure hope we get a lot of adoptions from all this excitement, because right now we've still got a whoppin' 30 hamsters waiting!
Also: I am working on an info post, but I got sidetracked by all this. Soon though!
