|Animal Friend finds "friends" with MySpace. |
Florida Animal Friend joined the MySpace revolution and brought more attention to the importance of spraying and neutering dog and cats. They now have a casual social outlet to educate and encourage the purchase of the Florida Animal Friend license plate.
With the exposure of MySpace, the Animal Friend profile now has almost 3,000 views and new friend requests daily.
According to the recent New York Times article, From MySpace to YourSpace
, the estimated 110 million monthly active users makes the time invested in the free social networking site a great investment of resources.
"Rupert (Murdoch) made an important bet," said Eric E. Schmidt, the chief executive of Google, which signed a $900 million advertising deal with MySpace's parent, Fox Interactive Media, in August 2006. "He may find that this is the single best investment he has ever made."
|Florida Animal Friend wants to reduce pet overpopulation.|
Florida Animal Friend was founded to help stop pet population by raising funds for spray and neuter programs in Florida by the sale of the Florida Animal Friend license plate.
At present, approximately 800,000 dogs and cats are killed each year due to overpopulation. At birthday renewal time make a change to the Florida Animal Friend license plate.
Purchasing the Florida Animal Friend License Plate will help reduce the number of dogs and cats to be killed because they do not have a home. Check out www.floridaanimalfriend.org
for more information.
