At The Dodo, we're building a digital brand for everyone who loves animals and cares about their wellbeing. Our goal is to serve up emotionally and visually compelling, highly sharable animal-related stories and videos to as many people as possible to help make caring about animals a viral cause. We want our readers to fall in love with animals, have fun and be entertained while they're doing it, and feel empowered to help animals in need. The Dodo is for everyone who loves animals and wants to spread that love and make the world a better place for them.
