Blog Hop Special Edition: Pedigree’s Write a Post, Help a Dog

If you are here, thank you. It’s apparent that you have an interest in animal welfare, or that you have come to leave a link to help spread the word about a really great, easy way to make a difference. Forgive the repetition, but if any new bloggers arrive over the weekend I want them to know how to participate, so instructions are repeated below. I would also like those of you with substantial Twitter follower numbers to consider tweeting about the idea. I will be at a company function all weekend and will have little time to mention this after Friday.

Here is the breakdown:

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.

That’s it. No fine print. Unprepared? Go back to your blog and invest five minutes in adding yourself to the list. You’ll feed dogs in need and feel great about doing it.

Please post and retweet and share. We have days to add to the numbers!

    Our jewel was one of nine puppies found in a dumpster in georgia!!! they were brought up by a rescue organization my Dog Sitter Kelly Rausch Hannah whom helped find home for all we already had 4 Beagles and didnt really want another dog !lol (before i came into Steve s life he was living a dog free life!) Cody the “monster” food raider ( could reach 6 1/2 feet in his hayday!0 converted Steve . When i first saw Jewel she looked Beaglish and she just jumped and cried to reach me over the other s LOL my 49 th birthday coming up and Cody wasnt doing so well (he had had surgery) and developed arthritis. After alot back and forth we brought Jewel home and something magical happened ! jessie the small Beagle took jewel under her wing all the other dogs respect and almost feared Cody not Jewel she jollied him along til he accepted her C.J. put her inher place Annie was the only one ( the “baby” ) of our pack)that had issue Nowa year 1/2 later they are a definite pack ( so far one woodchuck, one feral cat and 3 birds ( jewely sntches them out the air and one mouse)we ve tried to dissuade Jewel from the birds werent even aware that cat existed ! Jewel isa love puppy loves us and all the dogs !! life had definitely been better ! Jewel came witha discount spy cert and Pedigree puppy food!!!Tahnks Pedigree Sharon McDonald

  18. Thank you for the information about Pedigree’s Adoption Drive. We have discussed in our blog today. How I wish we could add a few more doggies to our home~

    My Abby was on her way to a shelter when I got her. She was one of the lucky ones.. I pray everyday there a many, many more lucky ones ! Thank you Pedigree adoption Drive..

  37. My old girl was rescued by us from a shelter 15 years ago. She was already a young adult dog (she is ooooold!) and was facing certain death. I’m sure most of the other dogs she was housed amongst met a fate worse than hers turned out to be.

    Don’t know where I’d be without her.

    Only hoping this small (post) effort helps go a long way to raising more awareness. Shelter dogs are the BEST!

  38. This Pedigree Adoption Drive is amazing. I just blogged about it! Glad to help shelter dogs find their forever homes!

  39. What a great cause! Happy to share the information. (Got it out a little late, thanks to a crashed computer.)

  40. We just added a section to our post today so we could help, and we added our blog link to the list (we are number 319).


  41. The cats let me blog about it, you can read my post here


  42. I believe that humans are becoming kinder to all animals but we still have a long way to go. Pedigree’s drive will help a lot.

  43. Here is our link to the post .. i hope we made it on time..

  44. This is our first time doing a blog hop so hopefully we did it correctly and it gets counted.

  45. Sharon says on  09/19/2010 at 10:44 pm

    Can’t imagine a world without dogs … these wonderful, loving, sweet creatures that bless our lives with companionship and devotion. Thanks to Pedigree for their efforts in feeding those unfortunate souls who are in pounds waiting for their new forever homes!!!! =)

  46. Steve, Missy & Justin says on  09/19/2010 at 10:58 pm

    We want to help the dogs, but we don’t blog yet. We found out about this through a good friend who does have a nice blog. We hope this helps. We love all dogs, and try to help anytime we can.
