This One is For The Dogs

As I head to Washington, DC today to visit family and celebrate at a friend’s wedding, Babka will be hanging out comfortably in her own plush bed, while having a three night play date with her friend Maggie. But she was not always on this path. Last August Babka was dumped off at Miami Dade Animal Service and was on death row.

You may have heard this one before: She was saved by the wonderful people at Paws 2 Care Coalition and shortly thereafter adopted us. She now gets more treats than she knows what to do with, she enjoys many, many walks every day, and she is fed nutritious food on a regular basis. Babka gets to get pampered at The Groomer (though she hates it), she goes out to restaurants and has people that love her.

Babka is one of the lucky ones. One animal is killed every eight seconds in this country simply because of overpopulation. The shelters cannot keep them all, people buy puppies often with no understanding of where they come from and the current crisis shelters are facing.  Pedigree, however, has decided to help the shelters by donating one bag of food to a shelter for each blog post written, and last year was able to donate nearly 3,000 pounds of food to a shelter affected by a hurricane.  Bravo, Pedigree.

Do you have a pet adoption story you would like to share? I’d love to hear it!
