Bodega Cats and Flatbush Cats
We never anticipated the positive reaction and support that posting a few photos of our neighborhood cats would evolve eventually evolve into. We started with just a few photos of neighborhood cats that eventually accumulated to over 500,000 followers across Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Even though the accounts started as fun for our friends, we realized we could eventually use the influence towards positive causes in our community.
So far to date we've been able to utilize money from sales in our webstore towards helping the organization Flatbush Cats. We’ve also found other effective ways to help the community is to donate though social posting (Tweets, Stories, Posts, etc) which can help raise awareness for positive organizations.
Flatbush Cats is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on reducing the outdoor cat population in Brooklyn. They support the community with TNR (trap, neuter, return), rescue work, adoption, and free or low cost cat spay/neuter for low income residents. @flatbushcats helps give the cats a second chance to enjoy the life they deserve. You can follow their work to learn more about volunteering, fostering or adoption. 🐾
