So, when the good folks at Pedigree asked that I partner with them in helping to spread the word about their awesome project to help feed shelter dogs (and cats) how could I say no, right?!?
First, let me tell you a little about our Doofus-Dawg.
We adopted Doofus-Dawg from a local shelter here in Jersey: he was found tied to a dumpster, suffering from malnutrition and some awful skin disease, at the time. The shelter folks guessed him to be no older than a year and, judging by his inability to walk on a leash, without jumping straight up into the air, probably tied up or kept in a cage the entire time.
Doofus-Dawg (a.k.a. Pinhead) came home on November 28, 2005, which we have since celebrated as his "new" birthday, and although he still can't walk a straight line to save his life, Doofus-Dawg has found a safe, warm and snuggle-worthy place right here with us...in his forever home.
Which is the very reason why I am EXTREMELY excited to announce my partnership with the good folks at Pedigree as a Feeding Project Ambassador and had the privilege of being invited to the Humane Association in Nashville, TN for the filming of Miranda Lambert's awesome PSA, launched today:
Today, I am very excited to tell you that our friends at Pedigree will be expanding the Feeding Project in 2013 and they need our help doing it: by nominating the community where you think the Pedigree Feeding Project can make the most difference in the lives of shelter dogs! Here's how:
- Visit Facebook.com/Pedigree and click on the “Choose the Next Community” tab.
- Nominate your community. Submit stories of special dogs in your life, share photos and videos; Pedigree wants to know what sets your community apart.
- Share Miranda’s video with your friends and encourage them to nominate their community, too.
In March, Miranda and Pedigree will announce the names of the five communities that have been selected as finalists in the search. America will then vote to determine the next communities to participate in the Pedigree Feeding Project. The winning communities will be announced mid-2013.
In the meantime, I will be sharing more information about my behind-the-scenes look at the PEDIGREE Feeding Project in the next couple of weeks and, hopefully, help give a little more insight into how you (yes YOU!) and I can help shelter dogs (and cats) find their new forever home!
