Sign Up to 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. 

Every day, a new dog is selected to “hold the handle” and take control of the Instagram account so they can share photos and videos featuring their favorite 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.

We currently have a waitlist to hold the handle for our community Instagram accounts.

To sign up, please submit a request 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.  


Our goal is to launch We the Dogs teams in cities throughout the country. If you want to bring We the Dogs to your city, click here!

Shelter/Foster Dog Features

We reserve a day every month for takeovers featuring shelter and foster dogs available for adoption.  If you have a dog that you would like to be featured, please submit your information below.  Due to limited availability, we will not be able to feature every dog, but will do our best to feature as many as possible.
