The holiday season is a time to spend at home with your family. The Iams Home 4 for the Holidays program is hoping more than 350,000 families welcome furry friends in the Clearwater area and around the globe during this year's annual adoption drive.
Entering its eighth season, the Iams Home 4 the Holidays international pet adoption drive has placed more than one million lucky animals with loving families. This past December, the one millionth pet was adopted - a cat in Milton, Fla. Helen Woodward Animal Center started the Home 4 the Holidays adoption drive back in 1999 with 14 animal shelters in San Diego County. Since that time, it has grown to include shelters and rescue groups from around the globe with 1,941 shelters participating last year.
This year, Clearwater area shelters and Helen Woodward Animal Center will team with more than 2,000 animal shelters; Academy Award-winner Diane Keaton; Kristen Bell, star of the hit TV show "Veronica Mars"; and Iams to encourage prospective pet parents to take a shelter pet home for the holidays. This year's adoption drive takes place from Nov. 6, 2006, through Jan. 2, 2007, at Clearwater area shelters.
Prospective pet parents can learn more about the Iams Home 4 for Holidays adoption drive by contacting Clearwater area shelters or by calling (800) 421-6456 or visiting www.home4theholdays.com or www.iamsfriendsforlife.com.
