HOLD THE HANDLE

In addition to our fundraising efforts, one of the unique things about our organization is that we created community Instagram accounts to build and strengthen a network of local pet owners and to highlight dog-friendly locations and activities in our community.  Currently, we have accounts in three areas: Washington DCNew York City and New England.

 

Every day, a new person and their dog are assigned to “hold the handle” and take control of the Instagram account so they can share photos/videos featuring their pup's favorites places and activities.  This information is a great resource for Two Paws Up, which is a searchable map that we built  to highlight dog-friendly locations.  More importantly, the connections we build with the community allow us to have a far greater impact when working to benefit animal rescue organizations.

Not sure what to post? Don't worry: we've put together a Takeover Creative Brief to share tips and guidelines to make posting easy for anyone!  For more information, please email us or visit our handle instructions page.
