Models and puppies—do we really need to say more?

Models and puppies. And puppies and models. Seriously, what more can you ask for?

When we teamed up with Paws 4 You to bring together two of our favorite things—SI Swimsuit models and unbelievably adorable puppies—we knew we were in for a treat. Think of the Instagram opportunities! But what's more is we found ourselves lucky enough to introduce the people of South Beach to the incredible efforts of one of Miami's premiere non-profit, volunteer, donor-subsidized animal rescue organizations. 

"Once Paws 4 You Rescue commits to helping an animal, we seek the best quality treatment available—taking no shortcuts," the organization's website says. "In order to increase our animals' visibility, we spend time taking our new friends to different events across South Florida in search of forever homes.

"Our team is compassionate and passionate in reaching these goals," the website continues. "We are a group of professional people with various backgrounds, who together commit to saving as many animals as possible."

So when you're able to surface from the cuteness overload in the video above, we encourage you to visit the Paws 4 You website to find out how you can get involved in the noble cause of finding new homes for some of our new furry friends! 

A big thanks goes out to Paws 4 You for bringing an extra level of adorable to SI Swimsuit's second-annual fan festival event in Miami.
