I chat with Lorraine Houston from Speaking of Dogs about how social media has become such an important tool in mobilizing others when it comes to helping animals in need. The backlash against Seaworld and the dentist who illegally killed Cecil The Lion in Zimbabwe are two recent examples. Whether it’s an abandoned dog in Toronto or an endangered animal in Africa, normal people have a lot of power with likes, shares, petitions, crowdfunding, etc. Change.org is an amazing example of this.
