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 .
