The brightest stars are those that shine for the benefit of others.
Riley is a little dog who shines extremely bright with big dreams and an even bigger heart. He teamed up with his human, Chaity to inspire others in the Instagram community to donate and raise awareness for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. The star theme came from the idea that Riley and his friends are shining a light on the reality of animal cruelty and how much other animals depend on us for help.
Despite everything else going on in their lives and demanding time and attention, an online community of strangers joined efforts not only to raise just under $2,000 for the organization World Animal Protection but also to raise much needed awareness for defenseless animals around the world who need our help.
Here are some of the wonderful photos put up to bark the work out about the cause:
And because this was, after all, meant to support ALL animals, here are some kitties:
As a grand prize for one of the participating pups, Chaity designed a custom animation based on their entry to thank them for their time, effort, and generosity.
