We all enjoy a good scare from imaginary threats on Halloween. But the fear that true dangers present are altogether frightening. This spooky season, make sure your pet parents know how to make the most haunted of holidays fun and safe for their furry companions.

A message from our friends at PEDIGREE®

If You Like Helping Dogs Find Homes, You’ll Love Our Loyalty Program

Nearly 3.1 million dogs end up in shelters every year. So we created the PEDIGREE® One True Loyalty Program. How it works is simple: if a customer spends $25 on Pedigree food or treats, we’ll pay for their dog’s adoption. They get a dog and all their loyalty, the dog gets a much needed home, and you’re able to place another dog in need. It’s another small step in Pedigree’s long standing effort to help end dog homelessness.

*Purchase $25+ of PEDIGREE® products, adoption fees up to $200, 50 U.S. and DC only, valid 5/1/22 to 12/31/22 for Dollar General customers or 7/1/22 to 10/31/22 for customers of other retailers.

Goodbye Sneezing, Hello Kitty Snuggles

Senior Dogs Require Special Care

As dogs transition into their golden years, their care needs will begin to change. They’ll likely start to experience common senior health issues like joint pain, slower metabolism, and changes in appetite. Whistle smart devices translate millions of data points about a dog’s daily behavior into in-depth health and activity insights. See how Cinnamon’s mom, Leona, started using Whistle to better understand how she’s doing—and how to help her stay as healthy and happy as possible.
