Another one of those social media days has come and gone, but this year my goal was to do something with meaning to celebrate one of them. What better day to celebrate than National Rescue Dog Day? and what better way to celebrate than with a bunch of adorable rescue dogs?? Answer: There is no better way. That’s why I chose Wags & Walks Dog Rescue to help out this year.
Wags & Walks is a community of dog lovers working to promote shelter dogs as the best dogs in the world through advocacy of our unique family-friendly foster and adoption programs. Since 2011, they have saved more than 4,500 dogs from high-kill shelters. They rely on the help of the community to continue making an impact in the lives of dogs in need in Los Angeles!
A few months ago, I started volunteering with Wags & Walks (who I used to foster with before we got Peanut) and I am now helping them with marketing. After visiting their center a few times, taking puppy yoga in their flex room and having meetings on their plush couches surrounded by bright white paneled walls and hanging wicker basket chairs, I knew others needed to see this place too. Typically when people think of a dog rescue, they think sterile, kennels, smelly and dirty. Wags & Walks dog rescue couldn’t be further from this. They have two attached buildings, one for the spacious, glass door kennels where the pups stay, and one for their offices, activity spaces, meet and greet rooms, and more. I figured, what better way to show off this magnificent space than to invite some dog-loving influencers and some of the supportive Wags & Walks partners.
Here are some of the amazing partners that came by to lend their support at this fantastic event:
