What We Do


The goal of We the Dogs is to find unique ways to raise donations for animal rescue organizations. Supporting animal rescue in our communities is something that we take very seriously, and our team is dedicated to finding creative ways to get people engaged in our efforts to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.



”If my dog's not invited, I'm not coming.” We believe it’s critical to build communities that support animal owners and advocates. That’s why we focus on promoting local dog-friendly businesses and activities through fun social events that connect our members and raise money for a good cause in the process.

Upcoming Events


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.
