Each year, many pets are either abandoned or lost and end up in homeless shelters. Iams Home 4 the Holidays is an annual campaign to find permanent homes for these homeless pets.
Iams is spearheading a campaign to provide 5 million bowls of food for these shelters and homes for 1.5 million pets in need by January 4, 2011.
The Fayette Front Page was recently invited by Iams to participate in the Iams Home 4 the Holidays campaign by joining in a blog hop about pet adoptions. It was easy to share stories about the adopted pets in our lives. With tissues in hand, our staff and readers shared moments of happiness and sadness that our furry companions have brought to our lives.
In appreciation of the growing momentum this project, Iams has released the following update numbers for this year's adoption campaign which runs through January 4, 2011.
Dogs adopted: 150, 037
Cats adopted: 131,956
Other adoptions: 6,191
Facebook Fans: 50, 551
Total Meals Donated: 439,746
A great big "thank you" is extended to all who participated in the Blog Hop which ran October 24-31.
