Most dog adopters have tons of photos of their rescue dogs. Friends and family members may politely smile at the photos while others may hide your Facebook posts. Here’s a chance to share favorite dog pictures with people who REALLY want to see them and perhaps inspire some else to adopt a dog.
Not too long ago I received an email which invited me to spread the word about Long Live Pets, a short film project. Best Friends and its official pet food partner Nature’s Valley Instinct are on a mission to inspire action and support the No Kill Movement.
They are creating a short film and are looking for your help! Simply submit your photos of your rescued dog via Instagram, Facebook or a direct upload by March 31. There are several specific scenes they are looking for: car ride, treat, tug-of-war, fetch, jumping, running, belly rub, close up, lick and sleepy.
Here is the short version of the trailer.
The longer version of this trailer gets me emotional and I hope it will affect you the same way. You can see it here.
The sad fact is that in the US roughly 9,000 dogs are put down every day. The majority of these aren’t sick or vicious dogs, they are just dogs like Theo who for whatever reason no longer have a home. Purebreds, mutts, small dogs, large dogs, puppies and senior dogs are in shelters across America. It is wonderful to think that something as easy and fun as sharing your dog’s photos could help save millions of dogs.
I can never put into words how wonderful Theo is. He’s filled our hearts with love and added fun to our lives in a way that only he could. If you have a rescue dog, I hope you’ll upload a photo to this project!Disclosure: We received some Nature’s Variety Instinct samples. If my dogs had thumbs, they would give them a thumbs up rating. Daily Dog Tag only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers and only share products that we would use for our dogs.
