About Blue Buffalo Home 4 the Holidays

Through a collective group of more than 4,000 pet adoption agencies, facilities and rescue groups, Home 4 the Holidays has become the largest pet adoption campaign on record, saving more than 13 million pets since its inception in 1999. The campaign saves the lives of thousands of orphan pets during the holiday season and educates the public about the importance of choosing pet adoption.

For the fifth year, Helen Woodward Animal Center is excited to partner with Blue Buffalo for this impactful program. The pet food company not only provides impressive national marketing to spread the word about adopting over the holiday season, but also distributes “Adoption Kits” to all participating rescue facilities to gift to each new pet parent who takes home an orphan pet throughout the campaign.

Blue Buffalo, Helen Woodward Animal Center and some adorable puppies launched the 2016 Blue Buffalo Home 4 The Holidays pet adoption drive at Nasdaq MarketSite in New York’s Time Square.  Click here to read more!
