In an effort to help adoptable pets, Dallas rescue group Dallas Pets Alive! decided to take over Instagram by Photoshopping dogs needing homes into people’s already existing photos. They call this Muttbombing!

Created by Dieste, Inc, the #muttbombing initiative is part of a campaign that features real dogs available for adoption. Photos like the famous Ellen-and-stars Oscar selfie complete with rescue dog help many adoptable pets find homes.

“When it comes to finding homes for shelter pets, you have to really get creative,” says DPA Executive Director Leslie Sans. “We’re trying to show a different side of our pets through a fun and virtual interaction.”
