Elmo Helps Rescue Puppy Find A Forever Home


This summer, Sesame Street viewers were thrilled to see that Elmo rescued a puppy named Tango.

It seems that his love for rescuing dogs didn’t stop there, and he’s now partnering with The Dodo to help more dogs find their loving forever homes!

Elmo is helping real-life dogs find real forever homes in a new spin-off series between Sesame Street and Dodo Kids called Families For Furry Friends.

He helps explain each dog’s traits, including things like chewing shoes and having “the wiggles.”

It’s awesome to see Elmo making such a difference for rescue pets in need. Not only will dogs find their perfect forever homes thanks to him, but kids and families will find their new best friends.
