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 two areas: Washington DC and New York City.


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.

For more information, please email us or visit our handle instructions page.


We currently have a waitlist to hold the handle for our community Instagram accounts.  To sign up, please submit a request below to be added to the waitlist.  We will email you once a date is available, and to provide further details and instructions for holding the handle.  Please note that the current waitlist time is approximately 2-3 months for NYC and 5-6 months for DC.
