Hi Folks, Before Getting into Inspiration This Tyme, I wish you all out there reading this article a fantastic, fabulous day. This time, We feature the huge establishment and growth of “Patrick’s law movement” within a short span of time,say just 3 months.The Dog depicted to the right is Patrick.
His owner starved him to near death, put him in a plastic garbage bag, and threw him down the garbage chute in a Newark (NJ) apartment building.
On March 16, 2011, against all odds, a maintenance man saw the bag moving and discovered the dog was still alive… Barely.
If the Dog hadn’t moved, even a little, he would have ended up in a pile of garbage. No one would ever have known that he lived or died. And his abuser would never have been caught. The dog now called Patrick couldn’t bark, cry or whimper, but he MOVED!
The maintainence man brought him to Associated Humane Societies (AHS) in Newark.The Vets rushed him 40 miles South to the Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls, NJ. They immediately began vital measures to save this extraordinary dog’s life. Morning came, and Patrick had made it through the night.
The next day was St. Patrick’s Day, and so they named him PATRICK.
But more than survival, Patrick became something much more important.
He became the face of animal abuse to animals lovers all across the country.
People came in mass numbers to show support for this sad skinny little dog and to become a voice for the voiceless in every state. His story was published in vital social media websites and newspapers.Donations started pouring in and his medical care was funded by the huge crowd of animal lovers in and around USA. The Caretakers used this opportunity to lend out support to all other Dogs like patrick who were subject to animal abuse. They established a Movement in the name of patrick in almost every state in United States of America.
Facebook became a vital social networking tool for spreading awareness and gathering support. Initially, the support came in the form of million likes to the patrick miracle page.
The overwhelming support that came in as a result of social media marketing through facebook led to the grand success of the Patrick’ks Law Movement around most of the states in USA.
The Patrick movement was formed.Today the patrick movement is a umbrella group comprised of 50 states in America and many other vital parts of the world like britain, France, Singapore etc. The Mission of this group is to reform animal cruelty laws at municipal and state levels and urge the recognition and rights of pet and stray animals.
The video below depicts the growth of the patricks law movement with the help of social media marketing. Patrick’s story inspires us to
create and make valuable causes like the patrick’s law movement a grand success with the help of limited resources and a short span of time.
Success need not come in the form of education or business. Patrick’s Law movement is a success in itself in the form of service to the society
and has opened many doors for animals suffering from abuse and brutality. Its necessary, that the diligent efforts of thousands
of volunteers of an emerging movement be lauded and appreciated.And thats what we are doing at this month’s ‘Inspiration this tyme’.
Help our voices be heard. Spread the word….Thank you all who are reading and sharing this article.
