Pedigree Adoption Drive





We're for dogs. Some people are for the whales. Some are for the trees. We're for dogs. The big ones and the little ones. The guardians and the comedians. The pure breeds and the mutts. We're for walks, runs, and romps. Digging, scratching, sniffing, and fetching. We're for dog parks, dog doors, and dog days. And if there were an international holiday for dogs, on which all dogs were universally recognized for their contribution to the quality of life on earth, we'd be for that too. Because we're for dogs/ And we've spent over sixty years working to make them as happy as they've made us.

The above quote came directly from the case of Pedigree dog food. It pretty sums up how I feel about dogs. My boys are as much a part of my family as any human member is, and they bring me a lot more happiness than most of the humans.

I posted the above in December of 2009. My feelings haven't changed. The only difference is that now I have one male and one female dog. My sweet Dalmatian went to the bridge earlier this year.

And now Pedigree is doing even more by helping shelter dogs. Please do your part. It doesn't cost anything except a few minutes of your time.

Pedigree is devoted to helping shelter dogs find their furever homes. If you haven't already, you should visit Pedigree Adopt A Dog. If you're in need of a new best friend you'll find helpful tools, such as Shelter Searches and Adoptions Guides that will help you find a furry, 4-legged friend. Also, don't forget to become a fan of Pedigree on Facebook. For every fan, Pedigree will donate a bowl of food to shelter dogs. Please tell your friends!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post about this event! With the help of everyone we were able to raise about 8,000lbs of food!
