Road Dogs and Rescue (@roadogs)
Nikki Carvey, a journalist by training and bulldog lover, started Road Dogs & Rescue in 2011 to help dogs in LA. She estimates that she re-homed 70 dogs last year alone. Though Carvey works with all kinds of dogs, she specializes in bull dogs—a breed she fell in love with when she rescued her own bull dog Huxley—and her Instagram feed documents their journeys to their forever homes. "There is nothing like seeing an animal blossom under your care and to realize that they too are sentient beings and deserve to be treated with love and kindness," she writes.
