Every year the challenge is the same – countering media fatigue of an annual fundraiser. This problem was solved by telling new rescue stories from the 2019 List of Shame, which detailed the 15 worst animal abuse cases from the past 12 months. This, coupled with a comprehensive influencer strategy, was designed to achieve a wide reach and impact.
