There are very few things that make us melt more than a delicious meal – and a playful puppy is at the top of that list. This season, extend the act of giving to our four-legged furry friends through programs like Rachael Ray’s ASPCA 100K Challenge and Iams’ Home 4 The Holidays.    For the past 13 years, Iams’ Home 4 The Holidays program has been placing pets in loving homes and feeding homeless animals. For the first time ever, getting involved is just a click away!  Starting this month, every “like” or “share” click on Iams’ Facebook page during scheduled “feeding times” will feed a hungry mouth of a pet in participating shelters. To help beyond a click, for every specially marked bag of Iams pet food purchased, Iams will donate one bowl of food to a participating animal shelter. Log on or pick up a specially marked package today or anytime between now and Jan. 2 to give to a pet in need during the holiday season. Iams is hoping to give a fresh start to more homeless pets than ever before with just under 4,000 participating shelters across 23 countries,. To get involved, check out Home4TheHolidays.org or on Iams’ Facebook page.
