Policy Library

Sharing Resources. Maximizing Impact. Helping Animals.

Are you ready to hire a social media manager, but don’t know what the actual job description looks like? Or perhaps you’ve been tasked with writing the social media policy for employees at your facility, but don’t know where to start. Or maybe, you just need an example for a commenting policy to add to your Facebook page. This policy library is here to help get you started!

Please keep in mind that every shelter or rescue group (and every state) has different requirements for what a policy or job description looks like. Social Media for Animals and the originating organizations are simply providing these as examples, and do not guarantee that they would be applicable to your facility, or meet the requirements of your human resources department or the local (and federal) laws.
