When looking for a new pet, people spend more time searching online than in shelters. The Austin Humane Society wanted a meaningful way to connect their dogs with potential owners over the web, so R/GA came up with a solution of using retargeting ads for good. The ads would follow people to show how loyal shelter dogs are.

The agency simply added a tracking pixel to their dogs’ profile pages and used the data for retargeting ads. So if people showed interest in them, they kept coming back to the people to prove their loyalty.
