ASPCA and Local Shelters to Receive Up to a Half Million Dollars in Donations Thanks to Ring and Drew Barrymore

May 13, 2024


Today, Ring announced its first-of-its-kind campaign called “Ring Pet Portraits,” that invites pet parents to join Ring in raising funds for animal shelters in need, by submitting their favorite pet photos and videos from their Ring cameras. Beginning now through June 14, for every pet video or picture submitted with hashtag #RingPets on Instagram or TikTok, in stories or posts, Ring will pledge a $10 donation, up to $100,000, to support the ASPCA and up to an additional $400,000 to local animal shelters across the U.S. in an ongoing effort to find animals loving homes.

“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,” said Matt Bershadker, President and CEO, ASPCA. “We are thankful to Ring and Drew Barrymore for shining a light on adoptable pets and the joy pets bring to a home.”

To raise awareness for pets in shelters, pet mom of seven, actress and talk show host Drew Barrymore is helping to spread the word.

“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,” said Drew Barrymore. “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.”

For pet parents who believe their pet is destined for fame, every eligible submission will be automatically entered in a contest for one pet to star in an upcoming Ring commercial – and we’re teaming up with Drew Barrymore to choose one lucky winner.
