Wouldn't it be a great holiday gift that keeps on giving if as many as possible of these lovely beings got forever homes? Yeah, I think so too.
But I was still surprised when the Museum was asked to help spread the word for Iams Home for the Holidays 2008. Here, I'll let the official fact sheet take over for a bit:
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Iams Home 4 The Holidays – among the world’s most successful pet adoption programs – includes nearly 3,000 worldwide partner animal organizations that are dedicated to helping place orphaned dogs and cats into happy, loving homes.
Iams Home 4 The Holidays has set a goal to place 1 million orphaned animals into happy and loving homes this holiday season from October 1, 2008 to January 5, 2009.
Award-winning actress and pet parent Felicity Huffman has teamed up with Iams Home 4 The Holidays to help raise awareness for the millions of homeless dogs and cats in North America.
Last year half a million pets were placed. Half a mill! This year over 3000 shelters are participating, and you can find one near you on this page of shelters by state and country.
