March Madness for Shelter Dogs

Oh my goodness! This is the cutest way to help shelter dogs and have some fun. March Madness has gone to the dogs! 

If you love rescue dogs as much as we do, you'll understand why we do everything we can do to support finding shelter pets good furever homes.  Our FurKids, Wynter and Riley are both rescues and we love them so much.  Here at Dancing With Fireflies, we donate a portion of our earnings to support animal welfare causes, donate to shelters, and local pet food banks.

Our good friends over at Embark are working with shelters to find good homes for great dogs.  They have already matched perfect pairs and are hoping you'll help them and learn a little about canine genetics along the way! 

How it works

  • Vote for one dog per match-up in each of the 4 rounds.
  • Enter your email to submit your vote at the end (this helps us tally the votes).
  • You can only vote once in each round, so choose carefully.
  • Each new round begins the next Monday at 12pm EST.
  • Tell your friends to vote to help spread awareness for each dog.

Embark Founders, Adam and Ryan Boyko grew up with rescue dogs and have continued the tradition by adopting four more rescue dogs as adults. In founding the company, they believe that every dog has a home and Embark can help match the right dogs to the right families to make sure all pups find a happy forever home.

Unfortunately, right now, millions of dogs are in shelters and foster care still waiting to find a family.  Embark is dedicated to working with shelters to improve the lives of these dogs and get as many of them adopted as possible. They are partnering with shelters in Nepal and the USA providing funding and genetic tests to assist them in their vital work.

Embark works with shelters

Embark offers discounts to shelters and rescues as often as possible, in order to help these organizations place homeless animals. They are accepting donations to improve the lives of shelter animals through the Embark Veterinary Foundation. Please get in touch with them if you’re interested in making a donation.
