Iams promotion placed over 1 million pets

For the past ten years, the Iams Home 4 The Holidays campaign has run an annual promotion to place adoptable pets with new families. We recevied word today that they have surpassed the one million adoption mark for this season! The graphic below illustrates an updated count of adoptions via IH4TH.  Their goal is to place 1.5 million pets in homes this season so they still need help.  If you cannot adopt, you can support through volunteering or donating – info found at the Iams Home 4 The Holidays website.
