Since the original story appeared in January, several cities remain as finalists in the 'Pedigree Pet Food Feeding Project.' they are Wausau WI, Erie PA, Detroit/Flint MI, Jackson MS and Jacksonville FL. The two winning communities are in the process of being determined and will be announced in the coming weeks. I'll keep you posted as to who the winners are.

Original Story: January 23rd, 2013

It's no secret that the 'Female Country Vocalist' of the year and Blake Shelton's better half Miss Miranda Lambert has six, count them, six dogs she's rescued from various animal shelters (not mentioning the cats she's rescued too). Now the country music hottie is putting all her support and resources behind an effort called the 'Pedigree Feeding Program.' It is as it sounds, only with a little twist. Miranda and Pedigree Pet Foods want you to go to their Facebook page and nominate your local community animal shelter that could win a years supply of pet food for your shelter, should your community win.

I want to nominate our very own 'Rescue the Animals and the 'Abilene Animal Shelter' because they set a new record high, of how many animals were saved. There are more adoptions going on now and more responsible pet ownership because of their extensive media campaign. I believe we now have the highest (per-capita) animal rescues in the State and maybe in the south (if not we're getting close).

If you would like to help all you have to do is go to the Pedigree Facebook page, like it., and register Abilene as the city that most needs the Pedigree help. Do it now and then tell ten friends to do the same. Please share this page on you Facebook page as well. I think that if we all work together we could win one of these for or local community shelters.

We're for dogs. And as the PEDIGREE® Feeding Project grows, we look forward to helping more dogs get the nutrition they need, and find the loving homes they deserve. Stay tuned for updates, as we'll be announcing the five final cities shortly. In the meantime, don't forget to share your nomination with friends to get them involved too!

Here a perfect way to help our community save money and get more attention on the homeless pet problems. Please go and nominate our shelters right now and share this blog with everyone you know. We only have a limited time, until the end of February to nominate our community, to get help for all the pets in West Texas.
