Shelter Appreciation Week

National Shelter Appreciation Week is November 4-10. Help spread the word by supporting your local shelter with a “Shelter Drive-by”!

What is a Shelter Drive-by? Simple!

  • Take a few minutes before your next grocery store trip and look online at the wish list of one of your local shelters. Double check that the shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
  • While you are at the store, purchase one or two items from the wish list, and grab what you can from home as well! Things like paper towels, cleaning supplies and garbage bags are often on shelter wish lists.
  • After your shopping trip, simply drop them off at the shelter on your way home. Snap a photo of your drive by!

Doing a drive by could help your shelter win a donation of up to $1,000!

To be in the running, simply post about your donation and mention the Iams Home 4 the Holidays program on your blog. Then share your post on the Iams Home 4 the Holidays Shelter Drive-by blog hop on November 11-17. Let’s help get 100 blogs in the blog hop so BlogPaws can donate $1,000 to Rescue Ink – plus, one entrant from the blog hop will be chosen for a $1,000 donation!

Let’s give some social media love to our local shelters and give the shelters a chance to win a donation, all the while supporting Iams Home 4 the Holidays!
