Reporters Need to Speak with Animal Lovers

Hello everyone ~ I wanted to pass along some info to our animal loving community. HARO, stands for Help A Reporter Out, is an email sent out 3 times daily (it’s FREE to subscribe) where reporters ask for sources for stories they are working on. The most recent HARO had two queries that might fit some of our pet-friendly community members.

To respond, copy and paste the email address and put HARO Query in the subject line ~ Then explain what knowledge you have about the topicĀ  the reporter is asking about! It’s that easy (and FREE)!

(Tip: Remember reporters get lots of responses so keep your responses quick and concise!)

21) Summary: Why do people have more than one pet?

Name: suzanne Phillips (Book proposal on pets, people and relationships)Category: Lifestyle and Fitness


Media Outlet: Book proposal on pets, people and relationships

Deadline: 11:00 PM EST – 31 December

Query: Most pets are ” home to stay.” As a psychologist of many years
with an interest in pets and relationships I have rarely heard of
pets being replaced. Rather, once a person has a dog, cat or bird
they love they tend to get another….and another. Certainly in
most cases pets enjoy the company of other pets. The question,
however, is whether there is an emotional reason that an
individual or a couple starts with one and ends up with more? Do
both want it? Is it an Individual or couple dynamic?


17) Summary: Adopting a kitten from a shelter
Name: Dusty Rainbolt (Cat Fancy)

Category: General


Media Outlet: Cat Fancy

Deadline: 07:00 PM EST – 31 December

Query: I need to interview someone with a large and a small shelter or
rescue group about what to look for when adopting from a shelter.
