Iams pet food just announced their “Home 4 the Holidays” pet adoption campaign. Now through January 3, 2012, Iams plans to help place 1.5 million shelter pets into loving homes. There are as many as 8 million pet in shelters in the US and millions more around the globe.
Home 4 the Holidays is a partnership with the Helen Woodward Animal Center and is in its 13th year. The adoption drive has helped 5.8 million animals around the world. This year 24 countries are participating.
“Each year, as many as 4 million orphaned dogs and cat are euthanized due to shelter overcrowding – that is approximately one pet every eight second,” said Mike Arms, founder of the adoption drive and President of Helen Woodward Animal Center. “Since partnering with Iams on the adoption drive 13 years ago, we have really seen the benefit of what this program can do for orphaned animals, and the families who adopt.”
