Working Together to Find the Solution

Every year in this country, more than 4 million dogs enter shelters.  Fewer than half of them will survive.  Millions more wander alone, abused, hurt, and hungry.  For too many of these wonderful animal companions, the end comes without ever knowing the love and dignity they deserve.

By working together, we can solve this problem. 

Adopt – Volunteer – Donate is our motto.  We encourage you to adopt your pets from local shelters and rescues.  Then, volunteer your time to help them.  Just a small commitment from you will make a big difference in the lives of dogs waiting for their forever homes.  Finally, donate.  No gift is too small to make a difference.

The PEDIGREE Foundation supports the people and organizations that work to ensure better outcomes for all dogs in need. 

Through our grant programs, we support organizations with big-impact ideas that might change the status quo.  They are part of the solution. We also support the important work of small shelters and rescues.  They are part of the solution, too.  For many of these shelters and rescues, feeding their animals and keeping them comfortable is a daily challenge.  But every day, they do whatever it takes to save one more dog.

It is our privilege to help them.  We invite you to join us.

Be the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are. Volunteer!

Many shelters and rescues couldn’t exist without volunteers. Contact shelters and rescues in your area and ask about their volunteer program. Here are two great organizations that can also help you find a match for your time and talents.
