Maybe that post title didn't come out quite right. Let me explain. Two big items are hitting the blogosphere in the same weekend. It's Meow like a Pirate Day and you can help feed dogs waiting to be adopted by posting some information. I had to help right? I really miss my dog (not that I want another one!) and sometimes I even think I might allow Mom and Dad to get another dog. So, can I help pooches and meow like a pirate in one post? Let's see Mateys!
Aye, ye can help furry pooches with 20 pound bags of chow given to a shelter simply for writing ye ole blog post. That's right Mateys! The scalawags at Pedigree has upped the ante big time and are providing Pedigree booty to shelters. Spread the word ye wenches and blokes: Any of ye can help, not just the furry blogs. Let's spread the word mateys, and see how far it goes? Here is the full non-piratey scoop:
- 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.
