We the Dogs DC was formed by seven women from the DC area who connected on Instagram through accounts set up to feature our dogs. We decided to use our social connections and work together to give back to the DC animal community.
In June 2017, our group planned and hosted the Bipawtisan March to benefit the Humane Rescue Alliance and Rural Dog Rescue. Due to the success of the event and positive community response, we decided to form a nonprofit to host regular fundraisers to support local animal rescue organizations.
We the Dogs DC was officially launched in August 2017. Our group works solely on a volunteer basis, and each of us has a full-time job that is not connected to the organization. We do this solely because we all genuinely care about rescue animal organizations, and we have a talent for thinking of unique ways to bring the community together to benefit the local organizations that need it most.
