Drew Barrymore and Ring Launch 'Ring Pet Portraits' Campaign to Support Animal Shelters

Actress Drew Barrymore has joined forces with Ring, the home security and smart home company, to launch the "Ring Pet Portraits" campaign. The initiative aims to raise funds for animal shelters in need by inviting pet owners to share their favorite pet videos and pictures on social media.

From now until June 14, 2024, Ring will donate $10 (up to $100,000) to the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) for every pet video or picture posted on Instagram or TikTok with the hashtag #RingPets. Additionally, Ring will contribute up to $400,000 to local animal shelters across the United States.

Barrymore, a passionate animal advocate, stars in a heartwarming and amusing short film to announce the campaign. The video features her rescue dog Douglas and bearded dragon Jeremy. "It was absolutely love at first sight for all seven of my pets that fill my home with so much joy and a little dose of chaos from time to time," Barrymore said. Barrymore said. "I'm honored to join Ring on this important mission, celebrate the special bonds and pride pet parents have for their animals, and help generate donations to the ASPCA and local animal shelters."

As part of the campaign, pet parents can submit their pet videos or pictures with the hashtags #RingPets and #contest on social media to enter a contest. One lucky pet will be chosen to appear in an upcoming Ring commercial, with Barrymore and the ASPCA helping to select the winner.

The "Ring Pet Portraits" campaign not only celebrates the special bonds between pets and their owners but also raises awareness for the millions of animals in shelters across the country. Matt Bershadker, President and CEO of the ASPCA, emphasized the importance of supporting local shelters, stating, "Every year, approximately 6.3 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide, and now more than ever, it's a great time to support your local shelter by opening your heart and home to an animal in need."

The campaign, which runs from May 13 to June 14, 2024, encourages pet owners to share their cherished pet moments on Instagram and TikTok using the hashtag #RingPets. By doing so, they not only have the chance to see their pet featured in a Ring commercial but also contribute to the vital cause of supporting animal shelters and the ASPCA's mission to protect and care for animals in need.
