Iams: Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Drive

We've posted before about Iams. Our Boston Terrier, Izzie, has been in our family for the last four years. She is a member of this family and we look for products that will help keep her strong and healthy so that she's with us for years. One brand that we've used for a while now has been Iams.

One thing that I just learned about Iams is there Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Drive program. They are going into their 14th annual drive and I couldn't be more honored in being a loyal customer. I love seeing companies that we love take their brand and do something good with it.

The program has been running since the beginning of October and will end at the beginning of the new year, January 2, 2013. The Iams Home For The Holiday help raises awareness of pet adoption while also ensuring proper nutrition for more homeless pets.

Iams will again work with founding partner Helen Woodward Animal Center, the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies and more than 4,000 animal organizations worldwide to encourage pet adoption.

Canadians can participate by lending a hand by:

  • Donating through Bags 4 Bowls – For those who are already pet parents, Iams will donate one bowl of food to a participating Iams Home 4 the Holidays animal organization for every specially marked package of Iams pet food purchased during the campaign.
  • Adopting from a local shelter – Every day more and more animals end up in shelters or in rescue care, and more than 25 per cent are pure breeds*. This is important to keep in mind when deciding to bring a pet into your life, the animal you’re looking for is probably in your neighborhood shelter. To find a participating animal shelter or rescue organization near you, visit iams.ca or facebook.com/iams
  • Volunteering – Shelters need volunteers to do everything from feeding, caring for and keeping rescue animals company, to assisting at events and fundraisers. If you can’t adopt but would still love to help do so as a volunteer.
  • Visiting Facebook.com/iams – Visit the Iams Facebook page and click to “Like” the page or various messages, photos, videos, etc. For each “Like” comment Iams will donate meals to participating animal shelters.

For more information about the campaign or to find out how to get involved, become a fan of the Iams Facebook or visit www.iams.ca.
