PEDIGREE(R) FOOD FOR DOGS AND HALLMARK CHANNEL TEAM UP TO HELP RAISE AWARENESS FOR HOMELESS PETS

Hallmark Channel's Premiere of You Lucky Dog Joins Forces with the sixth annual PEDIGREE(R) Adoption Drive to Encourage Adoption

Nashville, Tenn. and Los Angeles, CA (June 21, 2010) - Hallmark Channel and the makers of PEDIGREE(R) Food for Dogs have shaken paws over a new partnership to help raise awareness of the issue of homeless pets in conjunction with Hallmark Channel's original movie You Lucky Dog. The movie, starring Harry Hamlin, Natasha Henstridge and a border collie named Lucky, premieres on Hallmark Channel June 26th with a hopeful and heart-tugging message about rescuing pets and making them a celebrated part of the family.

The PEDIGREE(R) Brand seemed the perfect partner for Hallmark Channel on this endeavor given their outstanding advocacy for homeless dogs that's best illustrated through the annual PEDIGREE(R) Adoption Drive. A national awareness and fundraising campaign that began in 2005, The PEDIGREE(R) Adoption Drive has generated millions of dollars for dogs in shelters and breed rescue organizations.

"The PEDIGREE(R) Brand is committed to the cause of dog adoption and we've made it our mission to lend a helping hand to the four million dogs that end up homeless each year," said John Anton, marketing director for PEDIGREE(R) Food for Dogs. "The opportunity to partner with Hallmark on this film was one we didn't want to pass up, as it gives us an additional - and high-profile - platform to help raise awareness for our four-legged friends in need and encourage dog lovers everywhere to adopt, volunteer or donate."

From on-air Public Service Announcements and advertising as well as program tie-ins including celebrities involved in You Lucky Dog targeted media and publicity efforts, all involved in the effort will help bring attention to the pet adoption message through the premiere of the movie and beyond.

"Hallmark Channel embraces pets as part of the family, and with the story told in You Lucky Dog, it was natural to extend our love of pets beyond the television screen to make a difference for adopted animals and families who bring them into their lives," said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Hallmark Channel. "Working with PEDIGREE(R) Food for Dogs has helped ensure the message behind our movie rings true, and we're proud to be a part of such an effort."

It's important to note that adopting a pet is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Caring for a pet is a big responsibility, but most dog lovers will tell you that adding a dog to your family will bring a great deal of joy and happiness.
