Through no fault of their own, more than four million dogs enter shelters and rescue organizations every year. That’s four million hungry mouths to feed, four million dogs that require medical attention, shelter and love – and the fact that half of those amazing kids never find a place to call home is just heartbreaking. The PEDIGREE Foundation mission is to help those dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescue groups and by encouraging dog adoption. They have already raised more than $376,570 so far this year against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations. The Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes.
Here’s how you can help add more kibbles to the bowl: for the second year, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers are hosting a blog hop to help raise awareness to the plight of shelter dogs and to promote adoption. With the “Write a post, help a dog” effort, each post mentioning the PEDIGREE Foundation until today at midnight ET will result in the donation of a 20 pound bag of their new recipe for dogs in shelters nationwide. Just make sure to add your posting to the blog hop.
It is that easy: write a post, help a dog.
