With the holidays just around the corner, families are looking for new ways to pay it forward and help others in need. Iams Home 4 the Holidays kicks off its 14th annual campaign with new ways for families to get involved with just the click of a button! The program, which runs from October 1, 2012 through January 2, 2013, has helped place more than 7 million pets into loving homes and has donated an average of 200,000 tons of Iams dog and cat food to its partner shelters since 1999.
New to this year’s campaign is the Digital Dish Drive – a simple way to donate meals to pets in need right from your family’s home computer. It’s a perfect bonding experience and teachable moment to instruct kids to pay it forward! To participate, mom or dad can log on to Facebook.com/Iams to check out dogs and cats available for adoption and during scheduled “feeding” times each day, every “Like” or “Share” will result in a meal donation to a participating shelter.
This is a great way for families to get involved with pets in need and help children learn there are all sorts of ways to help in the world. I like being able to look at the pets online – I find it very hard to go into a pet shelter without coming out with a pet (or feeling very sad). And being able to feed them is fun!
If after interacting with the pets online you decide you want to adopt a pet, you can Find Adoptable Pets Near You – by visiting home4theholidays.org.
