Pet 'Net 2011 Helps You Help Animals

Pet Net Logo

Our friends at are hosting their fourth annual Pet 'Net Event to raise pet adoption awareness tomorrow, and we're thrilled to be a part of it. Pet writers from around the Internet are sharing stories about a variety of topics related to pet adoption; make sure to come back tomorrow to check out our post on surviving the first 24 hours after adopting a new dog.

This year, Pet 'Net is bringing something new to the table — a partnership with Iams and a social media donation campaign. Calls to action on Twitter will yield food donations as part of Iams Home 4 the Holidays Bags 4 Bowls initiative, and we've got all the details.

When you take any of the simple steps below on November 16, 2011, Iams Home 4 the Holidays and the Bags 4 Bowls initiative will donate food to local shelters.

  1. Tweet @Iams with the Pet ‘Net hashtag #IHeartShelterPets, and Iams Home 4 the Holidays and the Bags 4 Bowls initiative will donate 25 bowls of food to local shelters.
  2. Share your adoption story on Petside’s Facebook Wall for the chance to be featured on as a Happy Tail story.
  3. Like and comment on any adoption story or Pet ‘Net related post on Petside’s Facebook Wall and earn one additional bowl per action.

At the end of the day, we’ll tally how many bowls of food were donated. Ready? Get sharing!
