Great news for pets! We’re teaming up with PEDIGREE Foundation, the PEDIGREE® brand and two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch to raise awareness about pet adoption.
At this Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race in Nashville, Busch’s No. 18 Toyota Camry will feature adoptable dogs. Plus, keep an eye on his pit box, where life-size cutouts of adoptable dogs from local shelters will act as his honorary pit crew during the race. Get the schedule and how to watch here.
Just as exciting, we’re helping pets find homes. Friday through Sunday, June 18 to 20, our BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program and PEDIGREE Foundation will host adoption events in Nashville and Charlotte, covering all adoption fees at participating shelters.
Adopters will receive a starter kit for their new furry family member that includes food from the PEDIGREE®, CESAR® and IAMS™ brands, treats from the DENTASTIX™ and TEMPTATIONS™ brands, as well as coupons and swag from BANFIELD™ Pet Hospital, VCA Animal Hospitals, WISDOM PANEL™ test kits, PEDIGREE Foundation and the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS program.

Ending Pet Homelessness
Millions of pets end up homeless every year through no fault of their own. For example, their owner might have financial or health issues or the pet might get lost and not find their way home.
At Mars Petcare and PEDIGREE Foundation, we’re working to end pet homelessness and help keep people and pets together. Learn about the issue and how you can help here.
Plus, please consider supporting PEDIGREE Foundation with a donation. The Foundation gave over $1 million in grants in 2020 to help shelters and rescues working to help pets get adopted. With your help, they can do even more in 2021.
