I don't. I might post a friend's foster or something like that somewhere. But that's far from an 'urgent' dog. And we definitely cross post local lost dogs around here. We had one a couple weeks ago and the cross posting on facebook ended up helping to find the dog.

No, I do not. I do if a dog speaks to me, but if they are getting pts the next day, I can't bare to see that. Usually when I share them they are rescued soon but this one pit bull I shared she didn't make it out. And people need to realize you cannot save them all. It does suck but that's the harsh reality of it.

Yes. I have seen many, many lives saved due to crossposting, mostly from rescues taking in the dog, and they always have happy endings.

Why would you not? I care much more about helping to get a dog out a shelter than I do about being "obnoxious".

Because you can't save them all and sometimes "a home, any home" is a worse fate than being PTS.

By that logic no dog that goes into a shelter should leave it alive. you will never be able to save them all and there are always going to be rotten homes out there....

Doesn't mean I can't try to save as many as I can. I am a long time regular volunteer at the shelter I crosspost for, and I get to see updates on many of the dogs we've saved. Most of them are in very good, happy homes.

Not to mention most of the dogs in my shelter are puppies who would be killed because many people don't know that you can find puppies in shelters regularly, at least where I live.

Occasionally. Quite rarely though. 9/10 it's an English Shepherd or ES-y looking, as I have quite a few ES people on my Facebook.

Eta; the above isn't referring to specifically "urgent" dogs but dogs seeking homes in general. I think I've only ever posted a couple of urgent cases.

Know your audience.

I block people or defriend them if they cross post things like that on a regular basis. I'm not in a position to adopt, most people I know are the in Oz or local and not dog people. If I see a dog perfect for someone I would send it to them directly.

I find it annoying and know it's not going to do anything other than get me blocked. Also means the day I cross post something it will be meaningful. Just like when Sass and Sara cross posted the missing dog, I notice because they don't flood fb with cross posts. Or when Adrianne posted the senior the other day, I knew that dog /type is special to her and she doesn't do it often. I pay attention to those.

Nope, not usually. Mainly because most of the people on my facebook, I don't want to have a dog, because I know they can't handle the responsibility. I also fear that some of them would grab the dog and surprise me with it, I wouldn't be shocked. So really, me cross posting it would do nothing.

I will cross post lost dogs, though

Maybe because I have many local rescue friends? I don't do it constantly; I mostly just share whenever my shelter's "pets at risk" page is updated, and I do share pictures my shelter posts of dogs and cats, even though they're not urgent most of the dog. I don't *think* I do it enough to be annoying. I just really bond with and love all the animals at my shelter, and I try to do everything I can to get them into good homes.
