Cecil the Lion – How Social Media is giving a voice to the voiceless

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 12.41.33 PMCecil the Lion – How social media is giving a voice to the voiceless.

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. is an amazing example of this.

Dogstarz Comedy Fundraising Gala

‘Thank you Suzi Marks, Martha Chaves, Evan Carter, Sylvia, Smashing Pictures, Fox Theatre, all of our amazing Beaches sponsors and of course, YOU for attending our very first Dogstarz Fundraising Gala for THS.
Woof Woof’

Dogstarz says ‘thank you’ to all the Toronto animal rescue groups and organizations

‘GONE WORLD – 52% of global wildlife is gone in the past 40 years. #MarchAgainstExtinction’


‘Happy’ Dogs and Cats in Australia’


The DogStarz team is thrilled to share the first photo taken of Sailor Kitty in his new home! He instantly bonded with his new caregivers Karin & Adrian, who have affectionately named him Oskar. A fitting name, considering how much affection he ‘awards’ to all those that care for him. Special thanks to: the foster care given by Kirk and the St James Town Sailing Club; the Dogstarz volunteers who took care of his checkup, vaccinations, and transport; and to everyone that helped us to spread the word.

This success story is a great example of the power we have when we work together, to make a real difference.
