Get Caught Up In Rescue Madness This March As DoggyBnB Takes Over Inst
Instagram is going to the dogs, literally, as the “Rescue Madness” charity event kicks off on March 23 to bring awareness to animal rescues. DoggyBnB, a social network dedicated to Fidos, Fifis and fur-balls of every breed, is leading the pack through an Instagram contest featuring adorable, adoptable pups from 16 participating rescues from LA to Boston and all point in between. For 15 days, puppy-philes are encouraged to follow@doggybnb and @petflow_official, and “like” pictures of their preferred pets to advance them to the next round, until one K9 comes out king. You can also vote and track the pups’ progress at DoggyBnB’s website.

Beyond just bragging rights in the dog house, each “like” will also give voters a raffle entry for the chance to win up to $1,500 in fab pet prizes, courtesy of DoggyBnB and PetFlow.com. So, it’s a win-win. Want to improve your odds? Money talks. Each $1 donated to Rescue Madness translates to five raffle entries, and all proceeds will go to the participating rescues. The top tail-wagger and associated rescue will bank 20 per cent of the pot and up to $500 in matching donations from Healthy Paws Pet Insurance; 15 percent will go to the second-place winner; 10 per cent to third; and the remaining pot will be divided equally among the remaining rescues. Every dollar helps.
