The Pedigree Pet Week

19

Pedigree has taken the concept of “We care for Dogs” further with Pet Week, which is a once-in-a-year opportunity for pet owners to acknowledge their love and devotion towards their pets. 

Pedigree’s weeklong activity, Pet Week, was held in April this year at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. 

The idea behind Pet Week is to celebrate the special bond between the pet and their owners. This is to acknowledge the important role that a pet plays in one’s life and give an identity, form and creativity to this unique association. 

This weeklong event had initiatives like an adoption drive, a sponsorship drive for stray dogs, providing useful information on pets and free giveaways for Pedigree customers. Special Pedigree souvenirs like t-shirts, caps, photo frames, calendars, diaries, feeding bowls and pouches were distributed and they received a tremendous response. 

The most interesting aspect of the Pet Week was the Graffiti wall where many pet lovers wrote a loving message for their pets. 

All these activities were also directed at driving customers to send in the unforgettable memories of their pets in the form of short stories and pictures. The best of these will be put together in a book called ‘A Hundred Wagging Tales’ which will be a testament to the special bond between pets and their owners.
