Pet Pardons

I want to encourage everyone to join the new facebook application, Pet Pardons. Pet Pardons is an amazing app focused on saving the lives of shelter pets… and it is making a HUGE DIFFERENCE for these animals.

Pet Pardons Co-founders, Chris Hoar and myself, launched the app in December 2010. I am also the Marketing & Communications Director for the site.

About Pet Pardons

Pet Pardons is a facebook application that allows users to get involved in trying to save shelter dogs & cats on death row, in addition to promoting pets in no-kill shelters. The goal of Pet Pardons is to find homes for shelter pets who are scheduled for euthanasia (as well as those in no-kill shelters), by getting their faces & stories out to the public. The hope is that someone will be able to help each pet by fostering, transporting, donating, and/or adopting.

In order to help a Pet Pardons dog or cat, the user can click the “Advocate” button on each pet’s profile. The “Advocate” button will instantly share the pet on the user’s facebook wall, allowing the user’s friends to see & share the pet as well. The more users who advocate for each dog & cat, the better the chances of the pet being seen by someone who can rescue or adopt—thus granting the pet a “pardon!”

To install the Pet Pardons app, follow the link & click Install Pet Pardons:

Then go into each pet's profile & click the green ADVOCATE button with the pink heart!
Pet Pardons is privately-funded & run by Chris Hoar & myself. Please join Pet Pardons today to help save the lives of these deserving shelter pets!!!


  1. Pet Pardons works brilliantly. It's a totally voluntary way to check up on some sweet endangered souls around the country. I love petfinders but Pet Pardons is quick and efficient, linked right there on facebook. (Plus the administrators are really nice people.)

  2. I got my awesome Lucky puppy because of pet pardons and the awesome people that run it. Lucky is great and loves to cuddle. Im pretty sure i didnt save lucky he saved me. He took a place in my heart that needed some healing and filled it with slobbery kisses and tons of hugs.. Thanks pet pardons and all of you with huge hearts helping to save these angels..

  3. Georgette, THANK YOU!!! (and thank you for your sweet comments about the administrators--hehe)
    Amanda, Lucky is lucky to have you, and you him :) You know I love that boy & I'm SO thankful that Pet Pardons allowed you to find him!!!

  4. I really want to help, but I get freaked out when a new app says that I'm giving up "Includes name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, list of friends, and any other information I've shared with everyone.." Can you explain how that works? I don't want to give up all of my personal information to the entire world. Thanks for the clarification. I really do want to help. I'm a rescue transporter, taking animals from our shelter to rescue organizations in the state so they'll be saved. Jan Przybylski

  5. I agree, the app asks you to give up way too much information. Put the app on a personal information diet and I'll install it.

  7. I have my facebook on private. I need to keep it that way, but since I do, I can't advocate anyone. I really want to!! Any way that I can without changing security?? :(

  8. I am trying to keep a dog alive-supposed to be put down tomorrow and I can't get any help from the pound. I need to find a boarding place in Irving Texas who will take her until I can get her.

  10. A tip for Anonymous and Janice:

    My FB profile is set to private, but you can share the link to the advocated pet as a status update. When you do that, you can choose to make just that particular post public, using the pull-down menu with the privacy settings.
