- 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 PEDIGREAdoption 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.
The only food drive that Talley is interested in, is the "drive" to get hers delivered, and in a hurry. That little English labbie is a true food snarfer, which is why she is fed from a treat toy, usually a tug-a-jug. Inhaling food is not good for digestion! Talley certainly does not suffer from a shortage of food either; recently she has been on a diet to combat middle age spread. Yup, she has snuck 10 pounds on over the last year. Nope, not thyroid involved, we had that tested. You can bet the kibbles have been cut back and swimming activities have been increased. Certain breeds are more prone to weight gain and Talley is approaching middle age and lower activity levels. That said, as are many Americans overweight, so are their pets. So, do keep an eye on your dogs, keep up those activity levels, and watch for creeping weight gain. Feed healthy low fat treats sparingly. In the meatime, with all this talk of dog food, read on for a unique shelter food drive, organized by Pedigree. Write a blog yourself? Join in the fun.
