Many of you know that I am a huge advocate for adoption of pets over buying from a breeder or pet store.  All six of my animals were either foundlings or adoptions.  One of the unfortunate side effects of the bad economy has been the number of pets who have been given up by their families.  Shelters all over the country are bursting at the seams with animals looking for their forever homes.

To promote adoptions, Pedigree Dog Food is doing an Adopt A Dog Adoption Drive.  They have set up a wonderful website with information on where to find adoption centers, what characteristics different breeds have, and how to introduce your new pet to your home.  They are also doing a “adopt and get free food for a month” program.

So, if you are looking for a new best friend and want it to be the Canine variety, please read the valuable information at Pedigree Adopt A Dog!

For those who are looking for something a little smaller, but just as fun, consider adopting a house rabbit!  Visit The House Rabbit Society for information on adding a cute bunny to your family!
