As a former shelter dog prepares to assume the role of “first dog” and enter the White House, the #1-rated pet telemedicine app in the U.S., Airvet, is pledging to match donations leading up to the official “Indoguration” event, which is slated to take place virtually on Sunday. 

The Indoguration of “first dog-elect” Major, a 3-year-old German Shepherd who was adopted from the Delaware Humane Association, is a virtual event being thrown to bring awareness to shelter pets across the nation. Major will become the first-ever shelter dog to live in the White House. 

The virtual Indoguration is scheduled to take place via Zoom on Sunday, January 17 at 3 p.m. EST. Those interested in attending and claiming a spot, will need to donate $10 or more to the Delaware Humane Association.

Donations made by pet parents or veterinarians who use Airvet will receive a 100 percent match up to a total collective amount of $5,000, which will be donated to the Delaware Humane Association. 

“Airvet is the perfect solution for anyone in need of a veterinarian, especially if you’re traveling on Air Force One and the nearest vet is 35,000 feet below,” said Brandon Werber, CEO of Airvet. “The only thing we love as much as helping pets, is giving back to our partners who do so much for animals in need, which is why we’re supporting this great cause.” 

In order to have a donation to the Delaware Humane Association matched, attendees or donors will need to share their receipt on social media and tag @Airvet and @firstfamilydogs, along with the hashtag #airvetdonates. 

Founded in 2018, Airvet is the #1-rated pet telehealth app by pet parents in the Apple App Store nationwide.
