Delaware Shelter To Hold Virtual 'Indoguration' In Honor Of Major Biden

For the last four years, the lack of a dog in the White House has made the animal-loving citizenry more than a little sad.

So when Joe Biden became President-elect, there was extra excitement in knowing that not one, but two very good dogs would be moving in with him.

In particular, people were happy that one of those doggos, Major, would be the first shelter dog to live in the White House.

While his older dog brother Champ had previously lived in the Vice President's residence for eight years, this is Major's first time in the spotlight.

The Biden family adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018.

This is a huge moment for rescue dogs, because having a loving, adorable example living in the White House can make a big difference for potential pet owners who worry about the temperament of a shelter dog.

To celebrate the event, Major's former shelter, the DHA is holding a virtual 'Indoguration" party on January 17, 2021.

The whole thing will be hosted by the Today Show's Jill Martin and feature special guest Sir Darius Brown, a 14-year-old animal activist known for the bowties he makes for shelter pups.

All donations will go towards the DHA and their many shelter dogs still looking for furrever homes.

If you want to take part with your pup and donate to the cause, you can do so here. Only a $10 donation is required to participate.
