Michael Phelps might have won four gold medals in Rio, but these puppies just win, period. They teamed up with a few of your favorite Olympic athletes for a photo shoot to promote NBCUniversal's second annual Clear the Shelters campaign, a nationwide pet adoption drive that took place on July 23rd. The event paired 40 local NBC and Telemundo television stations with about 700 animal shelters for the day-long event. Last year about 20,000 pets were adopted!
Take a look below at some of our favorite photos! All of the dogs pictured came from Southern California shelters, and they were all adopted following the shoot. Aly Raisman deserves an extra gold medal of her own.....she adopted the dog she was matched with for the photoshoot!
