Simpatico: Write A Post, Help A Dog!!


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Write A Post, Help A Dog!!

Hey, did you know that in the past two years, through the "Write a Post, Help a Dog" Initiative" at BlogPaws, Pedigree and bloggers across the country (including yours truly) have united to generate nearly 650 blog posts to raise awareness of the importance of adoption and the need to feed shelter dogs? And those blog posts don't just sit there looking pretty-last year alone, they collectively triggered Pedigree's donation of 2,980 pounds of their new dry dog food to shelters affected by Hurricane Irene!

The good news is that the team of bloggers generously sponsored by Pedigree, is at it again this year at the BlogPaws Pet Blogging Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. From now until midnight on June 30, for every blog post written that mentions the "Write a Post, Help a Dog" campaign and Pedigree's commitment to adoption and finding shelter dogs loving homes, Pedigree will donate one 17 pound bag of their dry dog food to shelters in need, up to a grand total of 450 bags! So that's our goal this year, folks: we're asking your help get 450 blog posts up there so Pedigree can donate a whopping...7,650 pounds of food to shelter dogs! That's a lot of hungry tummies (with wagging tails) that will be full thanks to you and Pedigree!

If you're wondering about what to say in the post, check out the flip side of Pedigree's postcard for this campaign below, or feel free to copy and paste this post!  Or you can get some inspiration from the Pedigree Adoption website. It’s up to you! Just write a post and a shelter dog wins. Food will be donated to RescueBank, an organization that helps provide food for qualifying shelters and rescue groups.

And don't forget to spread the word about this great campaign to your friends and family. Here is a super cool badge to add to your blog which will help promote this worthy campaign.

That's a great cause! Oh yeah.. Newby mate, fill your boots son! Pudds and I are just good friends. My heart belongs to Beryl! (Though I do think Pudds could get done for cradle snatching...)Deccy x
