Reddit Community Rallies To Rescue Condemned Shelter Animals

A cool act of kindness happened yesterday on Reddit.com — the social networking site where you “vote” stories up or down to have them hit the main page. (If you’ve used Digg.com it’s similar, but Reddit’s community IMHO is much better.)

Anyways, someone noticed that a dog named “Rambo” was less than 24 hours away from being euthanized at a pet shelter and posted the headline “I’m just a Pup but my time’s almost up… and I’m asking Reddit for help.

The story took off, hit the front page, and a huge discussion on saving shelter animals from an untimely end resulted not just in Rambo being adopted — but several other condemned animals as well. Said one commenter, “It’s times like these that restore my faith in humanity a little.”

Also cool — some members have created a subgroup on the site specifically dedicated to helping rescue both cats and dogs.

Sure, this but a small save in a sea of lives lost daily to overwhelmed pet shelters — but to a dog like Rambo, a little social networking made all the difference.
