Did you know that October is Pet Adoption Month? Did you know that when you purchase Pedigree dog food at Sam’s Club during the month of October, the brand will donate one bowl of dog food to a shelter in need? Well now you do! 🙂 How cool is that? Now when I buy the Pedigree products that keep my furbabies happy and healthy, I also get the opportunity to share that love to help dogs in need. A complete win, win in my book. 🙂
While I didn’t officially adopt any of my dogs from an animal shelter, I totally adopted all of them from others. My Kayla came to me when my Mom’s newly gifted dog turned out to be pregnant. She was the runt of a litter of 5, and at almost 15 yrs old, she is the sole survivor. I love my baby girl to pieces.
About 5 yrs later came Kooter, who came to me by way of my next door neighbor. He had originally gotten him for his kids (both under 3 yrs old), however he soon realized that he had to give him away if Kooter was to survive. I had just moved in and was in full remodel mode when I got him, but I can’t see my life without him – whiny back talk and all.
The last one to join my brood was Hank. He came to me via my ex and has been a part of the family for about two years. But as soon I opened my home to him, there too went my heart. This quiet giant has filled my life and home in more ways that I can count. He definitely keeps me on my toes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
And that’s how we became the Sassy bunch.
My furbabies mean the world to me, which is why I feed them only the best. For breakfast they each get a serving of the Pedigree Adult Dry Food, while for dinner they get some of the same, topped with Pedigree Choice Cuts.
Spoiled? Maybe, but their unconditional love is worth that and so much more! 🙂
Love is what makes the world go round, so what a better way to keep that alive than by choosing to adopt a pet from a local shelter like the one we recently visited – San Antonio R.O.C.K.S. They’re an all volunteer run, 501(C)3 non-profit organization that was created to bring awareness and change to the plight of our city’s homeless pet population, and is dedicated to help make San Antonio become and stay a no-kill-city. On the day we visited, they were trying to match as many furbabies with their new forever home.
Yes, the responsibility of becoming a pet owner can seem huge because now you have someone else to care for (feed, shelter, take for regular check ups, etc.), but the return on investment is filled with several sloppy kisses and wags of the tail, simply for being you. Not bad in my book.
If you’d like to test yourself to see if you’re ready to adopt, check out this Are You Ready? site and check out Pedigree’s Facebook page, Twitter feed and YouTube channel for other great information to take with you on your next visit to Sam’s Club.
If owning a pet is just not your thing, then consider donating your time, money and/or resources to your local animal shelters, just like San Antonio R.O.C.K.S., to help dogs in need and/or cats in need. 😉
Happy adopting, donating, and being an all around positive influence on the world around us!
