For a 5th year pet food maker Pedigree is putting some cash toward animal shelters like the Grande Prairie SPCA through it’s adoption drive.
A portion of sales of specially marked bags of dog food goes directly to shelters.
Christina Nelson is the volunteer coordinator at the Grande Prairie SPCA:
She says they work hard to make sure the dogs that come to the shelter aren’t just “warehoused” in a kennel.
“We have all of our volunteers coming in and dog walk. As well as our dog trainer on staff to get them out in the dog park for play groups. We give them a bed and food and water.”
Nelson adds programs like the Pedigree Adoption Drive help directly in alievating costs of things like food, and dog beds and toys.
The drive also helps shelters fight the misconception that there’s “something wrong” with dogs at the SPCA:
Nelson says they’re mostly strays, or dogs that owners can no longer keep.
