Adopting a dog is already a rewarding experience — for you and your new furry friend alike — but Pedigree is once again rewarding pet owners even further with their loyalty program.

For the second year in a row, the dog food brand is covering the adoption fees (up to $200) for new pet parents who adopt a dog and purchase two bags of Pedigree food (15 pounds or more) between now and Oct. 31.

To participate in the One True Loyalty Program, simply adopt a dog from an authorized shelter in the U.S. and purchase two bags of Pedigree dog food before Oct. 31 (and be sure to save your receipts). Then, visit Pedigree’s website to submit your receipts and proof of adoption.

You will receive an email approval with a link to select a format for adoption fee reimbursement, which will either be via PayPal or a physical check in the mail.

“There are so many loyalty programs out there that take months of purchasing to receive a small reward, but when we think of loyalty, our minds go straight to dogs,” Melodie Bolin, marketing director at Mars Petcare said in a press release last year. “Nothing compares to the loyalty of our four-legged friends and the positivity and love they bring to our homes.”

A Pedigree spokesperson told Don’t Waste Your Money that during the first year of the One True Loyalty Program in 2020, the brand covered more than 600 adoption fees.

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, approximately 6.5 million animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs.

Each year, around 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted, but 1.5 million are euthanized because they were not adopted.

If you need help finding a shelter pet available for adoption in your area, the websites Petfinder and Adopt-a-Pet are good places to start looking for your new best friend.
