SA politicians' photos replaced with cats, dogs

2014-04-29 14:14
Cape Town - What happens when you get a few tech savvy people tired of seeing politicians on every news site they visit? They do something fun and turn it into a good cause.

A bunch of creative folk have released an internet browser extension that replaces online photos of South African politicians with dogs and cats looking for a home.

The extension – Vote for Pets – delivers on its promises.  

"It won’t, for example, spend your hard earned cash on a chicken run," a statement reads.

Vote for Pets was launched by Velvet Digital, Weekday Heroes and I Heart PR who were "all tired of seeing politicians every time we used the internet and visited a news site."

So, they turned their frustration into a great cause.

Say goodbye to pictures of politicians that "taint your web pages" and hello to the adorable rescue animals of Barking Mad.
