Pedigree Dog Paws Blog Hop
One of the biggest struggles any shelter or adoption group faces is feeding the dogs that they take in. There are other expenses that are incurred as well, and adoption fees in no way cover all the expenses that these groups put out to take care of the dogs in their program. So, today, we'd like you to take a minute to help with the Pedigree Adoption Drive.
•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.
If you'd like to join, copy the bullet points above and share them on your blog. It can be any blog, not just one related to dogs or pets. So, anybody who would like to join, please do. After you write your post, head over to Life With Dogs and leave a link to your post. Lots of hungry dogs waiting in shelters will thank you for it!
