    The food is quality kibble for the average dog and owner.

    I've fed Pedigree kibble to both my dogs for their whole life. Only recently in the last month have I changed.
    Each dog is different I suppose.

    There's always one in every crowd PMSL at Mitte......again!!!!

    And just to add back on topic......

    There will be another yellow dog day (I only know of Victoria) later this month. Last time Leannek took George (who has been adopted)! into Flinders St Station at 6.30am (sooooooo grateful for this, you have no idea Leanne lol)

    This next one will be at the MCG on a Friday evening, I suspect before football game and (drum roll please........) Netty has very kindly offered to do this one. Good on you Netty, many thanks (applause please.......)

    Thinking we may send Su Lin this time.........

    So you see, it's the behind the scenes work Pedigree do to expose rescue that is absolutely so wonderful. And all that TV advertising.....do you think that doesn't get people over to the website???? I assure you I can confirm it absolutely does. Pet adoption increases dramatically while ever the campaign runs and I for one am eternally grateful to both Pedigree AND Pet Rescue (and all the wonderful SPR Inc fostercarers, transporters, donators, & supporters out there).

    And not so common knowledge is what Eukanubra have been doing for us this year. So far we have received 17 pallets of soon to expire food for rescue. I know this because it is delivered to my garage lol.

    So far, this has been distributed to:
    SPR, Vic Dog Rescue, Beagle Rescue, SBT Rescue Rex (cat) Rescue
    soon Collie Rescue, Luvalab and Rescued with love will benifit also.

    Fact is that without the support of the pet food companies, rescue would be a harder slog than it already is and I for one am grateful for any help we get at all. After all, its all about getting these dogs, cats, rabbits (4 on my books atm) into loving and perfect forever homes and away from the green dream.

    While I am about thanking......would also like to thank and praise our long suffering vet Scot and his staff from South Eastern Animal Hospital

    I agree with that comment Myf.

    I don't have a clue about the statistics, but I would hazard a guess that for the amount of so-called "quality premium" commercial food purchased in our country each year, double if not more would be sold of the so-called "lesser quality" supermarket-available brands.

    I would also tend to think that more dog owners can't afford quality food from pet shops than those who can.

    It's definitely affordable. I'd feed it ahead of Science Diet.

    food wise each to their own. Each dog is different and requires different food. Personally I cannot feed Pedigree dry food to my girl as it sends her loopy. I have used their wet puppy food for her when she is off her food and that works ok without loopy.
    But being a person on a budget feeding Cass premium food would cost me a fortune. I have shopped around and now feed her Coprice, its a reasonable price and suits her allergies and ADHD & Busters Allergies. I have found some of the premium food can be as bad as some of the cheaper food.

    I appauld Pedigree and PetRescue for at least trying to help the Rescue organisations. Just the publicity is better then nothing. A few dollars here or there is better then nothing.
