I don't usually publish non-book related posts at this blog, but as a Veterinarian and a dog's lover, I think this is important and worth to know!
In honor of the BlogPaws the Conference for Pet Bloggers, Pet Brands, and Pet Health Care Professionals, Pedigree has decided to launch a Write a Post, Help a Dog Campaign. For those of you who missed the event last year in September 391 bloggers wrote about the program and with each post, Pedigree donated 20 pounds of its Healthy Longevity dog food to shelter animals. In all, 7,820 pounds of food was donated to two shelters known across the country for their dedication to the care and re-homing of senior dogs: Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco and Castaway Critters in Harrisburg, Pa.
How you can help in 2011
Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blog post. If you don’t have a blog feel free to tweet about the campaign or share on Facebook so your friends who do blog can participate. All bloggers are welcome even if you do not generally talk about pets on your blog. Its all about using Social Media for Social Good.

I think this is an amazing way to help as a blogger. Just writing a post and letting other people know how they can help. I love dogs (and cats too, by the way) and I think it's amazing that the Pedigree helps shelter animals this way.
By the way, if you are a book lover (I assume you are, since you're reading this blog!), Literary Escapism is having a swag giveaway for everyone who participates in this campaign ;)
