Miss Peaches quickly settled into her happy new life – And quickly launched a growing influencer career. Portnoy and the pup immediately used their fame to start giving back to the shelter that saved her and other shelters across the country. This included a line of merchandise with all proceeds benefiting pups in need.

Fans of pizza and pups were quick to rally behind Miss Peaches, which saw sales and donations rolling in.

Most recently, Miss Peaches had her first meeting with the Easter Bunny. And after the photo op, the pup dropped a cool $10k in the bunny’s basket to give to a charity of her choice.

Then, in a recent interview, Portnoy shared his and Miss Peaches’ efforts have racked up an incredible half a million for animal shelters, including the LifeLine Animal Project, which rescued the pitty. Portnoy also claimed that the Miami mayor has plans name May 20th as “Miss Peaches Day” and present her with the “bone to the city of Miami.” While I’d bet on it just being some of his dead pan humor, I’m sure we’d all love to see more days dedicated to doggos that advocate for animal charities and rescues.
