Koko is up for adoption at Turtle Gardens.

Between January and June this year 240 dogs were brought into Turtle Garden Spay Neuter Society – that’s almost two every day. Without this shelter, who knows where these dogs would have ended up. The makers of Pedigree recognize the importance of animal adoption and community animal shelters, which is why they created the Pedigree Adoption Drive campaign.

By the end of 2012 the campaign, which aims to show that shelter dogs are good dogs, the makers of Pedigree will have donated more than $1 million, to animal shelters across the country.  The shelters can use the donation for anything they require, including food, medical and operating expenses.

As you can tell by the amount of dogs that come into the Turtle Garden Spay Neuter Society, there is an on-going need for supplies, including food, blankets, cleaning supplies, toys and treats to name a few. The shelter will use their donation from the makers of Pedigree to keep these everyday essentials well-stocked, and assist them with any other needs that might come up.

While the makers of Pedigree® support the partner shelters year-round, the 2012 Pedigree Adoption Drive® campaign was launched Sept. 19 and runs until Dec. 31, 2012.

For more information on how Turtle Gardens will benefit from being a part of the program, including the receipt of a donation of up to $5,000 from Pedigree to help them with their adoption-related activities, the Pedigree Adoption Drive® campaign and adopting a dog, visit www.mypedigree.ca/adoption
