These Adorable Dogs Are Stepping Out To Support Science

Climate change hurts canines too.

Thousands people around the world gathered on Earth Day to participate in March for Science rallies to show their support for science and fight the environmentally disastrous agenda of President Donald Trump.

But humans weren’t the only ones to show up Saturday.

Many demonstrators also brought their four-legged canine companions along for the march as well. And sure, while most of those dogs probably viewed the event as just a good opportunity for a walk and sniffing some new people, that doesn’t mean that animal participation isn’t important. After all, climate change is an enormous threat to hundreds of species around the globe ― despite Trump dismissing it as “bullshit” going on to roll back regulations on fossil fuels. And extreme weather events like droughts, floods and hurricanes affect animals, too — including our pets.

Here are some of the dogs who showed their solidarity on Saturday.
