It comes as no surprise that dogs, cats, and other animals dominate the social media world. Animal rescues know so many people love hearing about the furry friends in their care.
So many rescue successes can be found on Instagram and Facebook, but what’s caught our attention are the rescues who are now ruling the TikTok realm!
Storytelling is a huge part of rescue so using TikTok to not only share fun facts, but provide a sneak peek into an animal’s journey with a trendy song is a winning combination.
We love how rescues are spreading awareness by sharing short TikToks.
