“In my view, a social media strategy is essential for any business, because you simply can’t reach your audience solely through the traditional media anymore” said EndGame PR President Steve Mullen. “I’m thrilled Sheltering Arms is entering the world of social media, and I’m thrilled to be working with them.”

Sheltering Arms has already launched a new YouTube channel, where videos from the organization can easily be found. Also in place is the new Sheltering Arms Facebook Fan Page, which can be found at. Next steps include creating a blog and a podcast. Future steps may include a Sheltering Arms presence on Twitter.

EndGame PR has partnered with Sheltering Arms on a variety of traditional public relations projects, beginning in the fall of 2007. Previous projects primarily involved strategic media relations.
