PEDIGREE Encourages Adoption by Reimbursing Dog Adoption Fees on Nov. 26

On Sunday, Nov. 26, the PEDIGREE brand is reimbursing dog adoption fees nationwide for the day.*

In honor of PEDIGREE Foundation and its 15th birthday of giving grants to help dogs find loving homes, when you adopt a dog from a local shelter or rescue organization on ‘PEDIGREE Shelter Sunday’ the PEDIGREE brand will reimburse you for your adoption fee.* When most of America starts shopping for loved ones, the PEDIGREE brand wants people to consider adopting a loved one too.

Despite a growing awareness of the many benefits pets bring, from companionship to increased well-being, more than 6 million pets enter US shelters each year. Even as interest in pet adoption has risen, the number of stray pets arriving at shelters has increased 26 percent since 2021. Because of this, shelters across America are facing overcrowding and capacity challenges.

“The PEDIGREE brand remains committed to supporting the animal welfare community to further our ambition to end pet homelessness,” said Jean-Paul Jansen, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Mars Petcare North America. “The Shelter Sunday effort comes at a critical time for shelters across the country and we’re proud to support them as they tirelessly care for dogs in need in search of their forever homes.”

Pet parents who adopt a dog on Sunday, Nov. 26, 2023 can submit their adoption receipt from Nov. 28 to Dec. 22, 2023 and the PEDIGREE brand will reimburse your adoption fee.* For official rules visit PEDIGREE.
