I was reading Auntie Anny's post today (yes, I can read ... hehehe ...) and she was talking about this PEDIGREE Adoption Drive which is raising awareness for homeless dogs. For everyone who becomes a 'fan' or 'likes' the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook, a bowl of food will be donated to shelter dogs.
According to Auntie Anny, so far more than a million bowls have been donated, which is a lot mind you but Pedigree has a goal which is to be able to give a bowl of food to each and everyone of the 4 million dogs in shelters and rescues by the end of this year. Oh my, I didn't know there were that many dogs in shelter homes ...
Nigel at Life With Dogs wants to spread the word all over the blogsphere and he needs some help. I copied this from Auntie Anny's blog about what he had to say:
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.
* 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.
Since I'm a doggie, a cute one at that ... hehehe ... I thought I'd write a post and spread the word too so some poor doggie out there will benefit from this. I wonder if I could get that spaceman to donate a bowl of his food too.
So don't wait, do your part to help more doggies out there and quickly help spread the word or I'll come bite your behinds!
