Trupanion is Blogging for a Cause

Pedigree Adoption DriveDid you know that Pedigree is donating 20 pounds of food for every blog written about their #dogsrule campaign? Well, we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to help homeless pets in need!

Did you know that more than 4 million dogs wind up homeless each year? Most of us here at Trupanion are dog owners, and many of us rescued our dogs from shelters or rescue organizations. Myself, I rescued both of my pups – one from an independent rescue organization in Seattle, Wash., and one from a shelter in Portland, Ore. Shelter dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Some are purebreds. Some are lovable mutts. Some are small puppies. Some are full-sized grown-ups. And each one of them has his own individual personality and disposition.

And while shelter workers will offer plenty of advice and guidance on which dog is right for you, it’s a good idea to do your own research. Start by visiting our dog breed guide, which contains information on the background, personality, and health traits of different dog breeds. (If your dog is a mix, research each breed that is mixed in – it can still give you a good idea of what you will experience with your new pet.)

And remember to invest in pet insurance for your new pet so you are able to give him the quality care he so deserves, regardless of the cost.

The Pedigree Adoption Drive is also raising awareness about awesome homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to a shelter dog for every person who becomes a “Fan” or “Likes” the Pedigree Adoption Drive Facebook fan page. So make sure to check that out as well.

    Rescuing any pet from certain death is a very important cause. It is vital for those looking for a pet to consider a rescue, these pets are loving and desperate for a forever home. I commend Pedigree for taking up this cause.
