Happy New Year from the set of our new original show Finding Fido! Watch the video above for a special message from show host Seth Casteel.
As our show gets ready to premiere January 17 at 9 PM, we'd love to involve you in a major good deed in the meantime: Helping us give away money and pet food to animal shelters and rescue groups across the US. As the show is all about matching people with shelter dogs — click here to learn more about the show — it's inspired us to get more involved in animal rescue. Getting involved yourself is easy and free!
Use the Hashtag #FindingFido on Social Media and We'll Donate Money to Shelters in Need:
Here's the details: We've been partnering with Greater Good — an independent organization devoted to improving the health and well-being of people, pets, and the planet — and Halo Purely for Pets® to give away $5,000 in cash grants and 9,000 lbs of pet food to animal shelters and rescue groups across the U.S. How to help out? Post a pic of your pet on social media with hashtag #FindingFido and we'll donate $$$ to organizations in need. Go one step further and nominate an animal shelter you admire by including their social handle in your post, too, and they'll automatically be entered into the weekly drawing for a $500 grant plus $6,000 worth of Halo pet food. With your help we can make a real difference in the lives of pets and people this holiday season and beyond.
