Global Strays is a 501(c)3 charity founded by young New Yorkers Elizabeth Shafiroff and Lindsey Spielfogel. Dedicated to improving the lives of dogs and cats in developing nations, Shafiroff and Spielfogel have made several trips to Nicaragua – the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere after Haiti. They strongly believe in the importance of visiting animal welfare organizations to see the work they do first-hand.
Alex’s dog has been taking over social media in Hollywood. Curious about this celebrity-duo, Animal Wellness Magazine just had to find out more…Animal Wellness: Hi, Alex. Thanks very much for meeting with us today! Let’s start with an easy question. Why do you love animals? Alex Rose Wiesel: I’ve always loved animals! When I was a child I wanted to be a veterinarian. We always had pets around the house like cats, dogs, birds, rats, fish and even a horse (named Dandy, who I loved).
If you’re like most cat owners, your kitty has a sizable collection of toys that you’ve bought or made for her over the years. You’ve probably also noticed that she doesn’t play with most of them. This is because toys on their own are not enough — cats need interactive play that includes your participation.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
