My apologies for not posting this sooner. If you’re considering adopting man’s best friend, keep in mind that Mars is offering rebates for adoption fees. It’s not perfectly plain and simple, but the bottom line is that if you buy $25 of qualified Pedigree dog food, and your adoptee comes from an approved (501C3) organization, Pedigree will rebate up to $200 in adoption fees.
Although there is limited funding, we qualified last year, even though our paperwork wasn’t approved until the end of November.
Although we don’t feed our dogs Pedigree, we purchased the required product and gave it to the local dog pound.
ETA: If you’re looking for a dog, please consider adopting one instead of buying one. Puppy mills, whether small or large, are a blight.
