Pet Charity ‘All Dogs Matter’ Taps #DogsatPollingStations Trend to Encourage Adoption

While many Brits are fed up with the prospect of heading to the polls yet again, there’s one sweet treat in store – the return of #DogsatPollingStations.

Now a staple part of any UK election or vote, grabbing a snap of cute dogs met outside a polling station, and sharing the images on social media, has become a perk of casting a ballot. But for this week’s election, there’s a new twist thanks to dog rescue and rehoming charity, All Dogs Matter.

Two creatives at London ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky came up with an idea to place cut outs of dogs the charity has available for adoption outside 14 high-traffic polling stations in London* this Thursday.  Each board carries a few details about the dog in question, and how to get in touch.

The campaign features the likes of Tilda, a Labrador puppy, Rupert, the cheeky Staffie and Ned, a German Shepherd cross.

Ira Moss, CEO, All Dogs Matter, commented:

People love posting pictures of adorable #DogsatPollingStations but of course they’re usually someone elses’ dog. This election day, you can now find your own canine pal by popping along to your local voting station.
