PEDIGREE® Adoption


Adoption isn't just life-changing for them, it's the start of a life full of love, loyalty, laughter and belly rubs that you and your family will cherish forever. So, when you’re ready for a dog and ask, 'Should I adopt?' there's only one answer — YES! 

Nearly 3.1 million dogs end up in shelters every year. Almost half never find a home.

PEDIGREE Foundation is working toward a day when all dogs are safe, secure, cared for and loved. So far, we’ve awarded more than 6,100 grants and nearly $11.6 million to shelters and rescues across the country that help dogs in need. Learn more about PEDIGREE Foundation and find out how to join us in helping end dog homelessness.

Benefits of adopting a shelter dog

No matter what shelter you go to, you'll find lots of dogs in need of a good home. When you adopt from a shelter, you're doing more than saving a dog's life. You're making room in the shelter for another dog in need or increasing the chances of a dog being adopted by allowing them to stay at the shelter a little longer. 

Adopting also helps form a special bond and strong relationship between a pet parent and their rescue dog. That can mean a loyal, affectionate and attentive dog for life. 

But don't take it from us. Follow us on Instagram at @pedigreeus to hear adoption stories from dog parents all over the country.
