Maybe if a dog really spoke to me and was very local I might but most of the things that show up in my feed are from my Aussie friends so me cross posting isn't going to do much and to be honest I find it obnoxious more times than not.

I do if its a senior dog that speaks to me. I can't bare them in shelters.

Very very rarely. Maybe 1-2/year.

ETA: I do crosspost lost dogs if I'm pretty sure they are still missing and know someone in the area that, as far as I can tell, doesn't know about it.

I do if I think there's a chance that someone I'm friends with could do something or knows someone who could... so usually just local crossposts, occasionally.

On my 'dog/gaming' account, sometimes. I'm friends with many crossposters. Every once in a while if it's a dog I'm really fond of I'll share on my main account.

I don't often share specifically "Urgent Dogs 2" posts though. I'm on a couple of herding dog crosspost pages and will share them.

I don't. However I did just crosspost a missing dog of a friend's friend.

Personally, I very rarely share urgents. I only share them if they really speak to me or if someone I know has met and can vouch for the dog.

The vast majority are guilt trippy, vague and impossible causes with unknown histories from high intake shelters..somewhere. and of course it's all rushed and the dog needs to be out in like 24 minutes.

It's like the effect of putting a "go green! recycle" sticker on your car. Feels good, helping out, spreading awareness..but what are you doing really?

These dogs are crossposted 100 times by the same group of people, to each other, all over facebook.

Incredibly rarely I will crosspost a dog in rescue in a foster home with some decent pictures, a good character bio, known history/temperament who just needs some exposure and has TIME.

but the run of the mill "EMERGENCY NEEDS OUT NOW!" crossposts.. nope.

Disclaimer: I work for Trupanion and love it/our policy! But I do not speak for the company or as the company.

I do, and generally to Reddit. There are dog and city specific subsections with wide audiences.
