Home(s) 4 the Holidays
Iams’ Home 4 the Holidays’ goal is to find loving homes for 1.5 million pets. You can get involved by adopting, volunteering or donating.
The Helen Woodward Animal Center of Rancho Santa Fe, CA teamed up with 14 San Diego area shelters to start the Iams Home 4 the Holidays program way back in 1999. That first year, they found homes for 2,563 orphaned pets.
Since then, the annual campaign has grown by leaps and bounds, to become the largest pet adoption drive in history! Last year, the program set a new World Adoption Record with 1,202,739 adoptions.
This year, the bar is even higher: the program’s goal is 1.5 million adoptions.
Animals help people. People help animals, too. It’s about that all-powerful human-animal bond.
