Become a fan of Pedigree’s Adoption Drive

Pedigree brand dog food is promoting its Pedigree Adoption Drive, an event that encourages people to adopt dogs from shelters or to support shelters through donations or volunteering. And this year, simply becoming a Facebook fan of the drive will help shelters, too.

Go to www.facebook.com/Pedigree. When you become a fan of the page, Pedigree will donate a bowl of dog food (8 ounces of dry food) to animal shelters selected by the Pedigree Adoption Drive. The food donation began Jan. 1, and continues through Dec. 31, 2010.

If you’re not on Facebook, go to www.pedigree.com and click the menu item on the lower part of the page, “Help Dogs.” This will take you to the Adoption Drive page where you can learn more about the drive, more about shelter adoption and find out about ways to donate money or volunteer your time at local shelters.
