Raising Litter Mates



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..

Write a Post, Help a Homeless Dog.

* 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.

I read about this great idea through the "Life with Dogs" page on Facebook. What a great idea right?!

I am one of those people who wishes she could save them all. Probably explains the reason why we have five (5) cats and Jordan. Now unfortunately their blog pages are not ready to be published - I wish I could link you to it - but all the cats and our older dog Jordan were rescues.

Up until April I had worked at the same veterinary clinic for eight (8) years. Let me tell you the occupational hazard of that!

Jordan, our older dog, was going to be euthanized because her previous owners couldn't afford her knee surgery. Once I had heard she was only four (4) years old my heart melted. I met her, I loved her, and end of story. She had lived in a garage, food was left out for days, and she had some serious barking issues (she still does). I had the owners surrender her to me and we got the surgery done.

After her surgery, and six (6) weeks of rehabilitation, she is like new! I have had her for about seven (7) years now, and she is a spoiled little princess. She swims at Ruskin daily, she has her own futon and she loves telling the puppies where to go!

I'm not going to get into too much detail with the cats just yet. They have their own site with their own stories that will be published soon ( we will link it through this site). But believe me when I tell you that I was never really a cat person to begin with - this obviously changed.

Okay, so enough about all this, I just wanted to get the Pedigree Program out there for everyone to see. Thanks to all of you who will re-blog it!!
