Being part of Martha's road trip was so much fun for Sharkey and me and as much as we like car rides, it was great to finally get to Skylands and stretch our legs. One day while we were there, Martha took us to a field with a big tent. Beneath it there were lots of dogs and children and grownups. We were told it was an event to raise money for the local SPCA so that they can build a new animal shelter. Martha became interested in a pet food pantry and decided to ask Purina to contribute coupons for 200 free bags of Purina dog or cat food to help feed poor hungry pets, of which they did!
It's important to be aware of this growing problem with hungry or abandoned animals and remember that you can help, too! Just pledge to help out at a local animal shelter or help create awareness of shelter pets at www.bemyhero.com. When you do, Purina ONE will make a donation of $5 up to $500,000 towards pets in need. Martha, Sharkey, and I have already pledged!
