Pedigree To Donate 27,000 Lbs. Of Dog Food To Hurricane Irene-Damaged Shelters

Yes, you read that astronomical number correctly: Mars Pedigree and the Pedigree Foundation have decided to donate a (really) whopping 27,000 pounds of dog food to RescueBank, a national pet food distribution organization working to get dog food to the neediest facilities in the Albany, New York area. So despite Irene's destruction, this is truly a win-win situation-more dog food to the shelters and displaced pets who need it the most!

As we mentioned in our previous posts, Parental Unit was honored to be one of Pedigree's sponsored bloggers that attended BlogPaws 2011 the weekend that Irene hit the east coast. While the conference wasn't much disrupted, it soon became apparent that Irene's damage would wreak destruction  for both humans and their animal companions. Numerous east coast shelters and their pet food supplies were damaged or destroyed: that's when Pedigree stepped up to the plate and decided to donate much needed food to one of the areas most reputable pet food distribution organizations-did we mention that number? 27,000 pounds of Pedigree dog food!

Many of you kindly took time from your Labor Day festivities and/or your hurricane clean-up activities to write a post about this food donation campaign; in fact, your blog posts raised a total of 2, 980 pounds of Pedigree's newest dry recipe dog food for donation...plus for you mathematicians out there, add to that amount whatever number of pounds adds up to that 27,000 total!

So what this means is that it's not too late for you to blog about this "Write A Post, Help A Dog" campaign and tell your readers and friends about this huge donation of dog food Pedigree will be making to RescueBank to reach as many dogs in local shelters as possible. Just to repeat a bit of information from our previous post, this "Write A Post, Help A Dog" campaign is aimed at raising awareness of both the four million dogs who end up in shelters and breed rescues each year, and the Pedigree Foundation, a 501(C)(3)that provides grants to shelters and rescues and encourages dog adoption.

And as a thank-you from Pedigree for partnering with them on their "Write A Post, Help A Dog" campaign, they're offering 10% off of all Dogs Rule Gear, if you enter this promo code: BlogPaws 10
anytime before September 30th-so stock up now! All proceeds go right back to the Pedigree Foundation to help shelter dogs find loving homes!

So we'll look forward to seeing those posts anytime between now and September 30th! As always, thanks so much for your support.
