PEDIGREE ADOPTION DRIVE ..... 17th - 21st October 2011

Last year over 120,000 dogs were abandoned in the  UK . And 7,571 of those dogs had to be put down .

The  Pedigree  Adoption  Drive was launched in 2008 . Since its launch over £1million has been raised for rescue centres up and down the country . These centres work tirelessly to find new and loving homes for abandoned dogs . Last year alone , grants of almost a quarter of a million pounds were distributed to 34 rescue homes and went towards funding the vital refurbishment of dilapidated kennel blocks , desperately needed veterinary facilities and the supply of essential surgical equipment.

I will be posting special blogs and information during the week beginning 17th October and explaining how you can get involved .

All too often these abandoned dogs have one  " Last Walk " , The walk to the vets room and the inevitable fatal injection .

Pedigree are working to ensure that more dogs can be spared this sad  "Last Walk " . This is a project very close to my heart and I hope you will all visit this site regularly for more information on how you can help  Pedigree achieve their goal.

A virtual kennel will be set up on this site and Pedigree will donate £1 everytime Ripley, the campaign dog , is taken for a   'virtual' walk . I hope you will all join in with this exciting campaign .

Thank you for sparing the time to read this post  .

  1. Terribly sad stats – and that "Last Walk" – there, Rosie, but this is wonderful work that the Pedigree Adoption Drive does. I'll definitely be taking Ripley for a 'virtual' walk (or e-walk, if you like!).
