    Angry Pedigree 'adoption Drive'

    You may have seen the ads on tv telling us that Pedigree will donate money to shelters to help dogs in need of adoption.

    Well today I was looking in a junk mail catalogue and..


    For every specially marked item, pedigree will donate 1 cent.

    I AM ABSOLUTELY FUMING!!!


    How DARE they make out like they care about dogs in shelters. They would need to sell 100 items to raise $1! The dogs of Australia deserve better than this. How disgusting!

    Pedigree - 'We're for dogs' ... Only after your hip pocket!!

    While I do agree they can definalty do better than 1 cent it does say on the website that they will donate 1 cent with a minimum of $100.000

    Point is it's blatant PR spin. It's the point of difference that might make a supermarket shopper choose Pedigree over another brand of similar quality, so for each 1 cent they donate to charity they're putting (I'm guessing) at least $1 into their own pockets. They can do better than 1c per sale, and they can also do better than $100,000 for the profits they're making off this little 'charity' exercise.

    I'm just peeved that they use their product to make out like the 1cent makes a difference. How about they just inform people about pet shops and the reasons the pounds are full of dogs instead?

    Money hungry tossers. Their products are crap too.
