I often write about having a REAL special place in my heart for animal shelters and rescues, like our Doofus-Dawg, so I was invited out to Nashville, TN (along with 5 other animal-loving bloggers, last December) for a very special project with my new friends over at Pedigree to help feed shelter dogs while they wait for their forever homes and, well, how could I say no, right?!?
The psa was being filmed at the Humane Association in Nashville by country music star Miranda Lambert, explaining her involvement with the Pedigree Feeding Project: a new initiative to feed more shelter dogs while they wait adoption.
Miranda Lambert adopted all 6 of her fur babies, jokingly admitting that her husband (country music star Blake Shelton) is half-expecting her to come home with yet another stray. Blake is behind her efforts 100%, as Miranda is also very passionate about helping shelter dogs increase their chances of finding their forever families.
I am very excited to tell you that our new friends at Pedigree are 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!
- 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.
There is still time! Miranda and Pedigree will announce the names of the five communities that have been selected as finalists in the search in March. America will then vote to determine the next communities to participate in the Pedigree Feeding Project. The winning communities will be announced mid-2013.
So, be sure to stay tuned, I hope to bring you more great news on how we can help shelter dogs (and cats) find their new forever home(s)!
Oh, and Doofus says "WOOF!" and a quick shout-out to our Delinquent Cat (also a stray, he tolerates us) YO!!!

Disclosure: I am very honored to partner with Pedigree in support of their efforts in helping to feed shelter dogs (like mine!) The expenses for my trip to Nashville were covered and I am being compensated for my services for the length of the program. As always, all opinions are my own.
