WHAT PROBLEM IS HEARTS SPEAK SEEKING TO ADDRESS?
In the last decade, there has been a tremendous shift in animal welfare towards innovative lifesaving and bold programmatic changes to help more pets find or stay in their homes. While marketing has become a recognized + critical component to this movement, the concepts and skills are still out of reach for organizations struggling with resource deficits. HeARTs Speak was born in 2010 out of a desire to develop a partnership between these organizations and the creative services, training, and resources that would enable better outreach to communities of potential adopters. Eight years later, it’s clear that improved imagery and marketing are a vital part of creating and sustaining lifesaving efforts, unlocking connection and increasing adoptions in communities throughout the world.
