FRANKLIN, Tenn., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- People often say they've "rescued" a pet, but in many cases, the pet ends up rescuing its new owner just as much. The PEDIGREE® brand is bringing that notion to life with a new video created by BBDO New York called "Pick Me," just in time for National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day (April 30) and May's National Pet Month.
"The reality of pet adoption is that a mutual connection is formed the instant a person meets the dog they're adopting, which is why many people say that their dog 'picked' them," said Melodie Bolin, PEDIGREE® Brand Manager at Mars Petcare. "The new PEDIGREE® 'Pick Me' video brings that moment of connection to life in an unexpected way, while reinforcing the PEDIGREE® brand's commitment to adoption and the message behind the FEED THE GOOD™ campaign."
This eye-opening video is the latest installment in the PEDIGREE® brand's global FEED THE GOOD™ campaign, which launched in 2015 and is based on the simple insight that dogs and humans benefit each other. The heart and soul of the campaign is present through impactful video content, which sparks conversation about the positive effect dogs have on people. These touching videos include "Dark to Light," the story of a blind woman and her guide dog, Brice, who has helped her regain her independence, confidence and pride; "A Vote for Good," a social experiment showing how even people with opposing political views during a divisive election can be united by a lost dog; and "By My Side," the inspiring story of a wounded veteran and how his service dog, Wally, helped him physically, mentally and emotionally during a very tough time, and how he then gave that love back by adopting a shelter dog named Maggie.
