Hollywood, CA (HNN) - In honor of the Hallmark Hall of Fame world premiere of A DOG NAMED CHRISTMAS, we're helping Petfinder.com give every dog adoption story a happy ending.
This holiday season, Petfinder.com is kicking off the first ever “Foster A Lonely Pet For the Holidays” program in conjunction with the movie A DOG NAMED CHRISTMAS. Based on Greg Kincaid's popular novel, it's a touching story about a developmentally challenged young man who names his adopted dog Christmas and sets out to convince the whole town to participate in a local animal shelter's inaugural “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.”
Similarly, Petfinder.com is working with more than 2,000 shelters and rescue groups across North America to give families a chance to adopt a pet this holiday season.
Potential dog and cat owners can visit petfinder.com/foster-a-lonely-pet to learn if their local shelter is participating in the program.
All are encouraged to tune in to the Hallmark Hall of Fame world premiere of A DOG NAMED CHRISTMAS on Sunday, November 29 at 9/8c only on CBS. Learn more about this pet fostering program at the Hallmark Hall of Fame.
