Each year, over eight million animals are found homeless. Half of those animals wind up being euthanized.

Some of you may remember the Home 4 The Holiday blog posts from last year. Well, IAMS is back helping pets to find new homes again this year. Their goal is to have 1.5 million animals be placed permanently and give out 5,000,000 bowls of food to shelters in need. Since October 1st, over 413,000 animals have been adopted, as you can see below.

They've been going strong in helping animals find forever homes and recently hit a new milestone. On Friday November 19, over 6,000,000 animals have found a new home!.

Help Animals This Holiday Season!

I'm very excited to announce that Too Kool Doggies is doing a special joint promotion with Home 4 the Holidays on Twitter. If you're on Twitter, you can feed hungry animals by just typing a few characters. Each tweet that includes @Iams and #TKD4Shelters in their tweet will give 10 meals to shelters. This will be happening from Tuesday, November 22nd to Tuesday, November 29.

If you're not on Twitter but still would like to help, you can also create a special holiday card through the Iams Facebook page. Each time a person likes the Facebook page, comments on a post or photo, Iams will donate a free bowl of food.
Have you recently adopted a pet? You can spread the news and help animals at the same time. Use the Iams Card Creator to create a special announcement and Iams will donate bowls of food for each card created.

Let's Discuss!

Are you bringing a pet home this holiday season? What do you love most about this program?
