In January 2017, Amber saw an opportunity to bring together individuals from different political and ideological backgrounds to find common ground on a passion they all shared: helping animal rescue organizations. Using her pup's Instagram, she reached out to others in the area to see if anyone wanted to help plan an event to benefit rescue organizations, and her idea came into fruition with the Bipawtisan March. Following the insane success of the March, We the Dogs DC was founded to support local rescues and build connections amongst dog lover and advocates in the community. As a result of We the Dogs DC, Amber and Izzy (@izzy_the_chow) have made lasting relationships with their co-founders and have significantly contributed to local rescue organizations. In her free time, Amber loves travelling with Izzy as much as possible and experiments with painting. While she claims she’s not great at it, her painting at a recent wine & design We the Dogs DC event, looks just like Izzy.
Keep your eyes open for Amber and Izzy on the George Washington Memorial Parkway where they enjoy sunsets and follow them on Instagram.
