Ahhh, this is the life!
I love this couch!
Mark Smiley, the company’s director of national brand communications, says that Best Friends was an easy choice to make when Thomasville was deciding on a charity to support for its first ever Facebook promotion, since the company counts many animal lovers among its staff.
"When we were brainstorming, we asked ourselves how we can take our love of pets and doing something good with it," he says.
A dog's life
Laura Black of Black House Creative, an advertising agency that handles Thomasville’s social media, says that in doing research on animal organizations she found a lot of similarities between Best Friends’ and Thomasville’s audiences. She also learned that the donation would be money well spent.
"Best Friends was the best fit for Thomasville," she says. "We knew that its money would be going to an organization that would do something good with it."
The response to the promotion has been outstanding since the promotion began running on April 16. So far, more than 260 photos have been posted, some of them hilarious for how utterly ensconced some of the pets appear.

The promotion ends on April 30.
