In total, the Beauregard refuge must receive 10 pallets, the equivalent of 3,200 kg of kibble for dogs. Born from a publicity stunt by the specialized food brand for dogs, the Agir pour l’adoption program allows thousands of animals to survive. “We’ve been doing this for eight years,” comments Pierre Berthou, head of Acting for Adoption in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.
Acting for Adoption is a program set up by Pedigree.

Each year, between October and December, nearly 2 million meals are offered to nearly 131 shelters in France. For a purchased Pedigree product, a meal is offered to establishments supported by the 30 Million Friends Foundation.
The organization has strict specifications. As in Beauregard, the foundation’s partner shelters thus meet rigorous organizational, management and ethical criteria (identification, vaccination, socialization of animals) and exclude any euthanasia of convenience. It is for this reason that Pedigree approached the association.

“These donations represent six months of food for the animals for us,” says Didier Chamberland, the manager of the shelter. “Food is the second biggest expense for this type of establishment after veterinary costs. Our goal is to meet the needs of animals. Until then, shelters like the one in Beauregard are holding up thanks to volunteers and donations.

Pierre Berthou adds: “The Covid crisis and the confinements have pushed many families to adopt dogs. Once the restrictions were lifted, animal abandonment increased. “So we need to educate as many people as possible, that’s also the goal of the Agir pour l’adoption program. There are many shelters and they are full. »
Adopt rather than buy
“We have been a partner of 30 Millions d’amis for at least twelve years. They support us a lot. Donations for the association are mainly donated to nearly 150 shelters, including ours. We also collect animals from the other side of France. They offered us a small truck and also support us for some vet costs,” describes Didier Chamberland. He and the regional head of Agir pour l’adoption insist on the need to come and meet the animals present in the shelter and to take time with them.
