Woof everypups, cats and hamsters, Scuba here. While Mom and the other pooches are getting ready for my birthday party, I wanted to tell you of a really pawsome pet adoption program. It's Iams Home 4 the Holidays pet adoption drive and their goal is to find forever homes for ONE MILLION PETS this holiday season. The spokesperson for Home 4 the Holidays is Felicity Huffman from the television show 'Desperate Housewives'. After she adopted Tucker,a black lab mix, Felicity was determined to raise awareness about the millions of homeless pets throughout North America. Now all of us here at DWB are very fortunate to have a good, forever home with loving(and forgiving) Moms and Dads. But there are many pets out there who aren't as lucky. Please join Desert Pups in helping Felicity bring all of these loving and wonderful pets Home 4 the Holidays.

We've added a link to the Iams website in the upper right corner of our blog. Also, listed below are several links to YouTube, featuring Felicity and Tucker promoting Home 4 the Holidays. (a clip of Felicity doing the photoshoot for the Home 4 the Holidays campaign). (a clip of Felicity on the Early Show). (a clip of Felicity appearing on Conan O'Brien). (Felicity appearing on THE VIEW).

hey Desert Pups,

Doing your good deed! What great pups you are! A wonderful post informing us of a wonderful cause and I hope your post helps lots of furry fluffballs find furever homes! No dog or cat or bunny or hamster or gerbil or bird or any animal deserves to be alone sitting in a shelter. Every animal deserves a home and love and freedom.


p.s. thanks for sniffing by and checking on us. I have no idea what my human is up too, but I am heading out the door to run over to Scuba's big one-three!!!!!! "I'm coming up so you better get the paw-ty started..."
