Social Media Policies

Alley Cat Allies is proud to foster active communities on our social networks. By participating in these communities you are agreeing to our social media policies below.

Retweeting and Sharing

Alley Cat Allies may share stories, information, tweets, and more on our social networking sites. This does not mean we agree with all posts and positions from the originator of the shared content. It does not imply any further support or affiliation to the originator of the shared content. You may ask Alley Cat Allies to share or retweet content, but doing so is up to our discretion. We are committed to staying on message to our vision and mission and our social media content, including shares and retweets, reflect that.

Commenting

We reserve the right to delete posts on our social media sites that include any of the following:

  • Profanity
  • Spam, including solicitation or repeat posts
  • Off-topic or irrelevant posts
  • Personal attacks, threats, or defamatory statements
  • Offensive terms targeting individuals or groups
  • Promoting violence against humans or animals
  • Promoting illegal or questionable activities

Repeat offenses may result in you being blocked from our social media accounts.

We encourage open discussion, including disagreement, but we ask that you keep your comments civil. Misinformation may be responded to with a correction, and then removed. Our social networks are maintained for the benefit of our supporters: Post made to argue, harass, or repeatedly assert opposing viewpoints may be removed.

Alley Cat Allies reserves the right, but is not obligated, to remove any comment.

To protect your privacy we encourage visitors to NOT publicly share personally identifying information (ex, email address, phone number, postal mail address).

We LOVE hearing your stories about the cats you care for. We may want to share the pictures and stories you tell with other supporters. We'll always try to contact you directly if we want to share your story with a wider audience (like in our emails, or newsletters), but by posting on our social networks you're acknowledging that you're okay with the info being seen by the public at large.

If you have a question regarding our social media presence or policy, please email us at socialmedia@alleycat.org.
