Every Dog Deserves a Loving Home. One of the reasons for our connection with the Pedigree Foundation is that we both are involved in and care a lot about dog adoption. Our life with our adopted dog Cleo has been the best! She is our first adopted dog and has changed our lives permanently.
Last year we were involved in the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive and the “Write a Post, Help a Dog” program. Through the efforts of almost 500 blog posts, coverage by Mashable and Yahoo, and tweets from Alyssa Milano and Tori Spelling, more than 7,000 pounds of food was donated as part of the campaign. Here in San Francisco, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue was one of the shelters that received a donation thanks to your help.
Getting Involved during BlogPaws 2011
This year’s effort will help raise awareness of the Pedigree Foundation—a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization—committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescue groups and by encouraging dog adoption. You can donate online to the Pedigree Foundation or purchase Dogs Rule Gearwhere the proceeds go to the Foundation.

The Pedigree Foundation has 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.
Shelters can apply for grants from the Pedigree Foundation by completing a form athttp://pedigreefoundation.org/. The amount of food offered by the Pedigree Foundation was increased from last year to up to 10,000 pounds this year!
Until Midnight ET Saturday, September 3rd, for each post written for the “Write a Post, Help a Dog” campaign, the Foundation will donate 20 pounds of the new dry PEDIGREE® recipe food for dogs—their best recipe ever—to shelters.
