Every dog deserves a loving home for life. PEDIGREE® Adoption Zone connects dogs with potential pet-parents.

Visitors wanting to know all there is to know about dog adoption headed straight to the PEDIGREE® Adoption Zone. It’s where visitors spoke directly to dedicated volunteers representing Adoption and Rescue Groups.
We are committed to raising awareness about adoption and substantially increasing the number of abandoned and homeless dogs placed in loving homes. By allowing hundreds of shelters to exhibit at the Dog Lovers Festival, we have helped 2,000+ dogs-in-need find loving, well-suited homes since 2013.
Most exhibitors participating in the PEDIGREE® Adoption Zone brought dogs available for adoption however, visitors weren’t actually able to adopt a dog at the Festival. Instead, they were provided with all the right information and contacts needed to make informed decisions and start the adoption process.
