MuttBombing: Pups Photobombing Pics For a Good Cause

A dog rescue organization is taking over Instagram

Millions of dogs enter shelters every year, so rescue organizations have to get a little creative when it comes to helping the plethora of pups find new homes. That’s where Muttbombing comes in.

Dallas Pets Alive! , a no-kill shelter and rescue organization in Dallas, is determined to find homes for rescue dogs and they are willing to invade Instagram to do it. The group has started Muttbombing, a new photobombing craze, where they search Instagram for selfies and insert adorable, adoptable dogs into photos in the hopes of finding them forever homes. Each Muttbomb provides information about how to help the shelter animal, while sending a valuable message in an incredibly cute way.

While Ryan Gosling isn’t up for adoption, Max is:
