From February 3-26, the Purina ONE mobile unit will be traveling to 11 cities from San Francisco to New York and stopping at local animal shelters to set up temporary food banks and adoption events. They will be visiting the Humane Society of Broward County on Tuesday, February 16th from 1:00 – 7:00 p.m.
More than 63,000 pounds of Purina ONE dog and cat food – equaling 11,000 bags of food – will be given out to help pets in need. At our food banks we will give away one bag of Purina ONE dog or cat food to anyone who stops by, as long as supplies last.
We know that the more pets get seen, the more they get saved. Even if the Purina ONE Tour For Heroes doesn’t stop in your city, you can still take part by sharing profiles of adoptable pets in your area. Every time a photo is shared, Purina ONE will donate $1 – up to $50,000 – worth of food to feed pets in need in local communities.
Sharing a photo is easy. Start by searching for an adoptable pet in your area by clicking on http://tourforheroes.marthastewart.com/ Choose a pet you want to help and click to share his or her profile with friends on your Facebook page. Pet lovers can share photos until March 31, 2010.
Purina ONE is also supporting adoption events at each of the Tour For Heroes stops to help save pets and find them a forever home.
Each stop will feature adoptable dogs and cats from the tour shelter, and every pet owner who adopts a pet will receive a coupon for a free bag of Purina ONE dog or cat food.

A lot of people are going through tough times right now, but one source of constant companionship to help them get through is often their dog or cat. Purina ONE wants to help pets in need, and by assisting their owners who may need a little extra help these days, we help their pets, too.
Whether you’ve lost your job, have large veterinary or medical bills or are struggling to pay your mortgage, no one will be turned away at any of the Purina ONE Tour for Heroes events. Feeding pets, sharing hope, saving lives, it’s what heroes do.
