Ryan Hemsworth put the cute puppy game on notice at SXSW this year by DJing for a packed house of shelter pups in recognition of Austin’s no-kill shelter law. Hemsworth, who just wrapped up his “Dogs Get in For Free” tour and is prepping to take his talents on a jaunt around Europe, got an email from Pets Alive! asking if he wanted to play a show for nothing but dogs to raise awareness about the shelter and immediately agreed. “South By South Woof” gives the animals at the shelter a chance to share the spotlight with stars like Hemsworth, who played “Probably the quietest set” of his life and admitted that he preferred playing for dogs over humans.
You can check out the video below – but if you’re a dog lover prepare yourself for a cuteness factor of 12. Also, check out Ryan Hemsworth’s “Cool DJ Mix” below and some European tour dates if you’re lucky enough to be living across the pond at the moment.
