Let's fill some hungry tummies and show our l♥ve - Pedigree adoption and food drive

Mimi's note: The faces you see above are my shelter babies. Each of them was homeless before I adopted them and provided a FURever home. There are millions and millions of gorgeous companion animals housed in your local shelter  just waiting for a chance to give you their love. Let's do what we can to keep them fed until they leave the shelter in the loving arms of their new momma or dadda.

Our shelters' finances are severely strained in our miserable economy. What you do today just might save a life - I know it will provide a full tummy.

How often have you had a chance to have a 20 pound bag of dog food donated to a shelter simply for writing a blog post? It’s really that easy. Pedigree has upped the ante big time. And please spread this message: The food drive is not limited to pet blogs. Imagine if we could spread this message beyond our circles and see how far it goes? The numbers could be substantial. Here is the full scoop:
  • 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.
  • 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.
It is so easy to make a big difference. Please set aside a few moments to write a post. Include the bullet points above.  Copy the pics if you’d like. Add whatever you’d like in addition to help get the message out. Because this is not limited to pet bloggers, there is tremendous potential. Know bloggers in other categories that might be interested? Please share this post with them, write one of your own, and be here Thursday to leave a link to your post. Let’s make this huge. It would just feel great.

Oh and my mom person saw a sign that made us think of you today. On a sign outside of a Catholic church it said, "Lock up your beagles, the Lions are playing Vick & the Eagles."

Stupid monster-man.

Another great post!!

I have to say that I don't like Pedigree food and would never feed it to my dogs, but do have to say that I really admire Pedigree for stepping up to the plate and making a big difference for the homeless animals--Any pup that is hungry should have a meal, and I'm glad that Pedigree is providing that for them!

Hi Scout and Freyja
I love looking at your faces and those of your kittys in your home.
I am so happy for you and for many of us that we have homes.
