Home 4 the Holidays Pet Gift Basket with Iams

Wednesday, January 02, 2013 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

Iams is giving my readers the chance to win a Pet Gift Basket worth approximately $300. Many people give animals as gifts during the holiday season. Did you know that 1.2 million pets were adopted during the Iams Home 4 the Holidays campaign last year and an estimated 5 million meals were donated to pets in need. In Canada alone, over 75,000 animals found forever homes during the campaign.

Here is a reminder how you can get involved with this program this year all year round. Canadians can participate in the program in more ways than one, including:

  • Donating through Bags 4 Bowls – For those who are already pet parents, Iams will donate one bowl of food to a participating Iams Home 4 the Holidays animal organization for every specially marked package of Iams pet food purchased during the campaign.
  • Adopting from a local shelter – Every day more and more animals end up in shelters or in rescue care, and more than 25 per cent are pure breeds*. This is important to keep in mind when deciding to bring a pet into your life, the animal you’re looking for is probably in your neighbourhood shelter. To find a participating animal shelter or rescue organization near you, visit iams.ca or facebook.com/iams.
  • Volunteering – Shelters need volunteers to do everything from feeding, caring for and keeping rescue animals company, to assisting at events and fundraisers. If you can’t adopt but would still love to help do so as a volunteer.
  • Visiting the Iams Facebook page – Visit the Iams Facebook page and click to “Like” the page or various messages, photos, videos, etc. For each “Like” comment Iams will donate meals to participating animal shelters.
