There are millions of animals in need of homes, which is why Swiffer® and Bark have teamed up to help make the barriers to adoption – like the clean-up – less of a challenge. Together, we are providing 10,000 Welcome Home Kits to participating shelters across the country to show how easy it is to get a thorough clean in minutes so more families can experience the love of a first pet.

Dogs are some of the cutest, but also some of the messiest little creatures I know. Add two stinky feet to the mix and you’ve got a perfect (but adorable) recipe for disaster. I know this better than anyone for all the crazy things I did when I was younger.

I would do just about anything to get a pup to follow me around. I’d crawl on the floor, feed them treats, or any food I had on hand. It never ended well to say the least. At my best friend Erica’s birthday party in third grade I kept feeding her adorable white puppy pizza until he finally came back and puked on my lap… Leaving her mom with a pizza-stained pup and throw-up-covered little girl.

Luckily for these BarkPost readers who sent in adorable photos of their tiny humans with pups, it seems like these folks mostly get stuck with the cute kind of trouble. 😉
