This month we start something that is very dear to my heart–and the hearts of nearly everybody I work with: Iams Home 4 the Holidays!
- It’s one of the world’s largest pet adoption programs.
- Our goal is 1.5 million orphaned pets adopted over the next 3 months.
- Our partner is Mike Arms, founder of the adoption drive and president of Helen Woodward Animal Center
- There are 3,500 animal organizations worldwide participating!
As Mike Arms says,
“Pet homelessness is an epidemic in our country and many animal organizations look to programs like Iams Home 4 the Holidays to help drive families to our centers to see these amazing animals. We’ve been a part of the adoption drive for 12 years now and have really seen the benefit of what this program can do for animals, our employees and the families who adopt.”
If you’re not in a position to adopt a new furry family member, consider making regular visits to our Facebook page. Our official “Adoption Angels”–Jack in New York and Meaghan in Saskatoon–are two new pet parents who will be posting about their personal journeys of adoption as they integrate their new four-legged family member into the home.
Also, when you visit the Facebook page and “Like” the page itself, or the various messages, photos, videos, etc. posted by the Adoption Angels, we (Iams) will donate up to 100 meals per “Like” or comment to feed orphaned animals. Our goal is 5 millions bowls of food!
Iams Home 4 the Holidays strives to educate about the importance of adoption so that every pet adopted goes to a permanent, loving home. Families who adopt through the program will receive an Iams adoption kit loaded with important information about nutrition, training and proper care to ensure that the relationship with the new animal starts off on the right paw.
Do you work with a shelter or rescue group? It’s not too late to join our adoption drive!
