Today is "Change a Pet's Life Day" !!
"January 24th is Change a Pet’s Life Day, sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition. This one day adopt-a-thon event hopes to unite 3,000 animals with their forever families.
Janet Donlin of Hill’s tells us that “eight million pets a year enter shelters.” And with the economy circling the drain, intake numbers are on the rise while adoption numbers are declining.
To do their part, Hill’s Pet Nutrition is paying the adoption fees for the first 10 dogs adopted at each of the 300 participating shelters. In addition, they are giving away Science Diet pet food and an informational DVD to all families who adopt animals from the participating shelters. Finally, they are providing a toll-free number to answer questions from new pet guardians."
Today is the day...change the life of a shelter pet.
