We'd like to take a few minutes today to say how thankful we are for animal welfare shelters and rescue organizations. Without rescue groups, none of the Greyhounds who have blessed our lives would have been with us. When we went to the annual QCGA reunion on Saturday, every Greyhound there owed a debt to the group for taking them in and caring for them until they could be adopted. It was really heartwarming to see so many happy dogs and humans there all together celebrating what had brought them together.
•Each year, more than 4 million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations. Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs.
•This year the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive is raising awareness for homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to shelter dogs for everyone who becomes a “Fan” or “Likes” The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook. So far more than 1 million bowls have been donated.
•Special for BlogPaws West: For each blog that posts about the PEDIGREE® Adoption Drive through September 19th, PEDIGREE® will donate a bag of their new Healthy Longevity Food for Dogs to shelters nationwide. It’s simple: Write a post, help a dog.
•Thursday, September 16 through Sunday, September 19, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers will host a Blog Hop, to help raise awareness for the “Write a post, help a dog” effort.
