Invisible Dogs Promote Adoption
Meetups across the nation bring attention to rescue

Two years ago, I wrote about Improv Everywhere's stunt that sent thousands of '70s-style invisible dog leashes to the streets of New York. Now these wire leashes are being used to bring attention to the many “unseen” dogs sitting in animal shelters around the country.

The movement is being spearheaded by Best Friends Animal Society and is calling for people to organize local Invisible Dog Meetups. The campaign will culminate in a National Animal Shelter Check In Day in November.

The Invisible Dog Meetups are a great way to spark conversations about rescue dogs while bringing together like minded people. Plus the invisible dogs are just plain fun!

Visit the Invisible Dog website for more information on organizing a Meetup in your area.
