PET LOVERS PETITION FACEBOOK TO ALLOW FOR PET PROFILES
These women, who I stumbled across in Chelsea while working on another story for 1010 WINS, say they are upset with Facebook for taking down profiles of pets. While they acknowledge that they are aware of the social media giant's human-only policy, they say many of the pets are highlighted because they are rescue dogs. Or therapy dogs. Or because they are trying to raise money for humanitarian causes. In some cases, they say, there are battered women behind the dog profiles. Using their "dogs" to communicate on Facebook because it's unsafe for them to reveal themselves to their abusers.
You can read more on the story at 1010 WINS.
As to why they are in pajamas? Well that's another story altogether!
