Dogecoin (DOGE) can now be used to help rescue real dogs, as animal rescue organizations have begun to accept donations in cryptocurrencies. Specifically, these are the cryptocurrencies BTC, ETH, Dogecoin and others. Specifically, Dogecoin was chosen for its meme nature.
According to the announcement, PAWS Chicago will now begin accepting donations to BTC, ETH, DOGE and other cryptocurrencies in an effort to support its operations before launching a new hospital to help homeless dogs and cats.
The organization reportedly focuses on a “technically capable demographic group of potential donors” and at the same time promotes cryptocurrency donation through billboards that use the popular laser eyes meme in the crypto community.

Castration against spending
The organization has reportedly provided more than 300,000 animal castration operations in Chicago in an effort to reduce the number of animals killed in shelters in the United States.
She claims that her operations have already reduced the number of homeless animals killed in the Chicago area by 91%. Susanna Homan, PAWS Chicago CEO, said:
“We are eager to connect with a growing crypto community that can help sustain the future of animal protection in Chicago and save their lives.”
An explosion of popularity
Meme-inspired cryptocurrency searches exploded during its massive 10,000% price increase, from an average of 135,000 monthly searches in April 2020 to 16.5 million in April 2021.
The increase appears to have been related to the WallStreetBets subredit and its fight against hedge funds for GameStop’s share price. It started after a parody Twitter account running under the name WSB Chairman asked if DOGE had ever traded for $ 1, other users pounced on it.
Dogecoin was created in 2013 as a joke. The community of this cryptocurrency is known for undertaking philanthropic projects, including assistance to charities. In 2014, it made headlines after selecting DOGE worth more than $ 25,000 to allow the Jamaican bobsleigh team to participate in the Sochi Winter Olympics.
This is not the first time that cryptocurrencies can help good things, many people simply throw away animals when they are unwanted, and shelters at the seams burst due to the loosening of the lockdown. Would you support the shelter with cryptocurrencies?
