Make a Difference in the Life of an Animal in Need

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

We are big animal lovers in our family, with Baby possibly being the biggest animal lover of all. Although we don’t have dogs, our cat Kaia (who I adopted from a shelter 11 years ago) is Baby’s very best friend, and in honor of their very special friendship and friendships with animals everywhere, I’m writing this post to help a dog and make a difference in another animal’s life. I was inspired to write this post by one of my favorite bloggers, Bibi at Daily Organized Chaos.

In honor of BlogPaws, the conference for Pet Bloggers, Pet Brands, and Pet Health Care Professionals, Pedigree has decided to launch Write a Post – Help a Dog campaign.

Last year in September 2010, 391 bloggers wrote about the program and with each post, Pedigree donated 20 pounds of its Healthy Longevity dog food to shelter animals.

7,820 pounds of dog food was donated to two shelters known across the country for their dedication to the care and re-homing of senior dogs: Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco and Castaway Critters in Harrisburg, Pa.

Please help spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blogger’s post. Here’s all you need to include in your post:

The Write a Post, Help a Dog program is aimed at raising awareness and food for the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year.

For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs — its best recipe ever — to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition.

The Pedigree Foundation — a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 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 Pedigree Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes. In addition to writing a blog post, here’s how you can help:

Donate online at http://pedigreefoundation.org/donate.aspx.

Apply for a shelter grant from the Pedigree Foundation by completing a form at www.pedigreefoundation.org.

Purchase Dogs Rule Gear at www.dogsrulegear.com where the proceeds go to the Pedigree Foundation to help loving dogs find a home. SPECIAL OFFER: Get 10 percent off Dogs Rule Gear by using the promo code BlogPaws10 from August 22 – September 30.

I love this idea. . . as my recent post indicates, we are animal lovers and we have recently rescued 3 cats and trapped/spayed and neutered 5 others in the neighborhood. Our 2 cats are rescues as is our dog….I will definitely be taking part!
Kudos.

I am helping a local horse rescue, Begin Again Farms, raise money since they are TERRIBLY underfunded! Would you help us out by passing the information along to your readers? They can visit http://fundraisersonline.net or http://beginagainfarms.shopshurepets.com to place an order for some great pet products (25% of sales via this site go directly to help this great cause!).
Thanks!
Melissa

Wow, Kaia is a very big cat! :D I believe in adopting animals in need. It not only makes a difference in their lives but in mine and also the society doesn’t need stray animals. These lovely animals deserve all the love in the world. :)
