Pet Celebrities Lend Their Paws to Animals in Need for National Pet Month

New York, NY - (NewMediaWire) - May 10, 2018 -  Petzbe, an online social media community designed exclusively for pets, today announced that it has partnered with a number of famous pet celebrities to promote its monthly Lend a Paw campaign to raise money for Humane Society International in honor of National Pet Month.

On May 20, Petzbe will hold its monthly Lend a Paw campaign, where pets across the world share photos of their paws in the app and in exchange, the Petzbe team donates money to Humane Society International. Pet influencers including Manny the Frenchie, Tibby the Corgi, Lil Bub, NalaCat, White Coffee Cat, Luna Rose, Spencer, Izzy and the Fluff, and Cats of Instagram are showing their support from afar and promoting the Lend a Paw campaign to their millions of followers for National Pet Month.

For dogs in the Tri-State area that are interested in helping out their fellow pet-friends in need, Petzbe will be hosting a live Lend a Paw event at d.b.a. in New York City. Pets can drop by the bar with their humans, share a photo of their paws in the app, and while humans will be treated to beer, wine and snacks, pets will get their own special Malbark or Zinfantail and treats to enjoy while they join the celebration. Each photo shared during the event will generate a contribution and be reflected in the donation total. The first 50 pets to attend the event will also receive a VIP (Very Important Pet) gift bag.

“We are super happy to see the great interest that our Lend a Paw campaigns have generated in the Petzbe app! More importantly, we’re thrilled to see the difference that this like-minded community of pet lovers is making for less fortunate animals,” barked Angus Tegner, CEO of Petzbe. “It’s an easy way to support our pet-friends who are not as lucky as many of us and can help them find the love and care that they need, something we strongly believe every pet should experience. By sharing a photo of your cute fluffy paw, Petzbe pets will help support animals worldwide.”

Since the launch of Petzbe in mid-March, the community has accumulated over 7,000 iOS users and seen a tremendous growth in posts as well as Lend a Paw participation and fundraising.
