Where to Serve

From Home/Anywhere*


1. Pick an animal welfare topic that appeals to you. For example: Save a Life - Adopt Don't Shop Reduce # of unhoused Pets - Spay/neuter is Cuter Shelter (older and/or special needs) Dogs Make Great Pets Too Be an Animal Advocate - Volunteer, Foster, Rescue today! Proper Pet Care = Happy, Healthy Fido 2. Research your topic. Pick three main points to communicate in the video. 3. Storyboard your video. Layout facts to support your three main points. Total time for your video should be no more than 60 seconds. 4. Gather images. Take pictures (or find online) to illustrate/support your key facts. If you have a pet, include them.

Review and re-film, as necessary, until you are happy with your results. 7. This next step is very important and cannot be skipped. Email the video to Karma Rescue for approval.
