SAINTS and Pedigree team up for dog adoption drive

The local Senior Animals in Need Today Society wants to adopt out more canines

A dog adoption drives starts this week in Mission, and runs until the end of the year.

Between January and June of this year, 20 dogs were brought into the SAINTS (Senior Animals In Need Today Society) shelter, but only five were adopted.

SAINTS works with animals that are often unadoptable due to their specialized physical and medical needs. The society provides living end-of-life care for these animals. Many go to SAINTS from other pounds where they were to be euthanized.

The Pedigree Adoption Drive kicked off Sept. 19, and the pet food company has donated $5,000 to the society to help with food, medical expenses and operating costs. Funds for the program come from a portion of proceeds from the sale of each specially marked Pedigree dry dog food.
