Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011!

Happy Tongues

Two of the joys of my life are these puggies, Wilson and Colin. They were both rescues through a local group in Houston. By adopting them, I vowed to do my best to improve the quality of their puggin lives. I write this for their friends in shelters. :)

This year, I'm participating in this year's Pedigree's Write a Post, Help a Dog program. In 2010, 391 bloggers wrote about the program and Pedigree donated 20 pounds of its Healthy Longevity dog food to shelter animals for each post.  This summer, severe heat and the cost of cooling shelters has made things especially rough. Anything - even a bag of food - can go a long way to making the puppies stay a little easier as they look forward to their  forever homes.

How you can help in 2011
Simply 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.
Then, link up to our Blog Hop below, hosted by the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers to help spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog.
