Celebrate Shelter Dogs and the Film Release of "Annie" with Sony, BarkBox and the ASPCA!

Who could forget the magical movie moment when Little Orphan Annie fell in love with street pooch, Sandy? Many of us fell in love with that scruffy dog, too!  We have some good news animal lovers and movie fans: On December 19, Sony's Columbia Pictures will release its contemporary remake of the classic movie-musical “Annie,” in which Sandy is portrayed by a shelter dog! The adorable tan-colored pooch named Marti was actually rescued by an animal welfare organization in Armonk, New York.

To show their continued support for shelter pets, Sony has teamed up with BarkBox, a lifestyle site for dog parents, and the ASPCA to help combat pet homelessness. For every picture posted to Instagram with the hashtag #ImARescueToo and the tag @AnnieMovie, BarkBox, in partnership with Sony, will donate $1 to the ASPCA. You can grab your phone, snap a photo of your favorite rescued pet, post it to Instagram and help raise critical funds for homeless pets! Thanks for supporting animals in need.
