Pedigree - A Vote for Good

Pedigree - "A Vote for Good" Social Experiment

As the 2016 Presidential election neared, our polarized political climate brought out the worst in many Americans. Determined to remind people that we have more in common than not, we conducted a social experiment called “A Vote for Good.” We sent a woman wearing a Hillary shirt to a Trump rally with a “lost” dog. Then, sent her to a Hillary rally with a Trump shirt. The result was heartwarmingly positive – people on both sides found common ground through a mutual concern for dogs to help one another.
