Beyond pool days and BBQ's this summer you can join forces with a few famous faces in support of dog in need. Snoop Dogg, Chelsea Handler and Eric Stonestreet are lending their star power to help dogs in shelters and rescues across the country.
DOGforDOG, the company’s who donates one bag of their all natural, made in the USA DOGSFOOD™ to a local shelter for every bag of DOGSFOOD™ you buy, launched their “Feed A Shelter” campaign June 1st. This grassroots initiative is an effort to provide one deserving shelter or rescue their delicious and nutrient rich DOGSFOOD™ for an entire year. The Company has asked the public to take to social media between now and June 20th to nominate their favorite shelter or rescue. Snoop Dogg tweeted his support for The Mutt Scouts while Chelsea Handler had her dog Chunk nominate Molly Mutt Meow. Both celebrities hoped their tweets would encourage others to get involved.
Celebrity power has helped the movement has exploded on the DOGforDOG Facebook page with hundreds of deserving nominations pouring in daily. DOGforDOG plans to narrow down the nominations to a select group of finalist for the public to vote on starting on June 23rd. While nominations may be pouring in DOGforDOG really needs you to get out and buy the food that is currently available in select retailers and online. The company needs to reach their goal of 100k lbs. sold before the end of July in order to ensure a year’s supply for a shelter. The expanding line can be found in local retailers and online.
The giveback philosophy behind the company is what drives the team at DOGforDOG each day. The “Feed A Shelter” campaign is just one thing they are doing in hopes of furthering their ultimate mission of feeding the thousands of dogs in need everyday!

Frontline, a popular flea and tick control by Merial, is also asking the public to get involved with a challenge to walk with their dogs in what they are calling “1 Million Steps for Happy Healthy Dogs”. Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet, a long time dog lover, will be in New York on June 6th to kick off the program that asks people to pledge to walk 20 minutes with their dog each day. The company hopes to raise awareness for both the importance of flea and tick control, especially in the summer months, as well as the benefits of exercise for both canines and humans.
The program runs through August 31st. If the target goal of one million steps is reached, Merial plans to donate up to a million dollars in product to shelters. To find out more you can visit www.1millionstepsfordogs.com.
