Make #ONEdifference For Shelter Dogs (and a Giveaway!)

This post is sponsored by Purina. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Purina ONE, but To Dog With Love only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.
There's nothing unusual about celebrity sightings in LA. But this past weekend, the real stars were the adoptable pets at a red carpet dog adoption event in Santa Monica. 

The adoption event was all part of the Purina ONE Difference campaign, which celebrates the people and shelters dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of dogs.

To celebrate the campaign, Purina ONE partnered with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) to help more dogs find their forever homes and help benefit the Petfinder Foundation by asking folks to sign up for the 28-Day Challenge. (More details how you can sign up and help, below!)

Two-legged stars turned out at the event too, including television star Jesse Tyler Ferguson who teamed up with Purina ONE and Petfinder to adopt his new dog, Fennel, an eight month-old Coton de Tulear, Cockapoo Mix!

Ferguson is also helping to make #ONEdifference by taking the 28 Day Challenge by switching to Purina ONE SmartBlend for his pups Fennel and Leaf, a 3-year-old Maltese,Yorkie mix.

The spcaLA is known for developing the Helping Enhance Animals’ Lives (HEAL)™ program which provides shelter dogs with enrichment activities and basic obedience to help lower their stress and make them better candidates for adoption. During the event, adoptable dogs walked a red carpet, showcased their smarts on stage and charmed attendees from their makeshift green room. 

Ferguson joined the fun, too, walking the red carpet with his recently adopted dog, Fennel.

  3. My dog Bullet is really different because he looks so vicious and threatening, but he is really the biggest, sweetest baby and only wants to be friends with everyone. Thank you.

  4. My dog is different because she really listens and understands what certain words are. I tell everybody she has a really high IQ.

  5. Personality mainly. I think another is that she doesn't fit the stereotype so that is a big surprise for some.

  6. i have 2 both service dog and they both are rescued dogs king he is hearing dog and guard and princess she let me now if some one around she is tia dog and she had help with the accident i have had king was a bused and not treated well and then now they are spioled dogs

  7. Abby Rose is my rescue pit bull mix she is such a lover and is always smiling and loves to play hard Even at 7 _I've had since she was 4 months- she is very active and loves to play fetch with anything and loves her chew toys

  8. Shiloh is *huge* for a sheltie- many people think he's a collie.

  9. Shunta just lost her dad a couple weeks ago and her mom 2 years ago. She is 12 years old and they were a little family for many years. She used to take care of her dad because he was old and couldn't get up steps. To me this is all special and different. Guess I'm a little bias.

  10. It would be a lot to go into detail about what makes each pup unique, but we'll try to keep it short. Bella is steadfast and my right had girl. Terra is very talkative and sweet, although sometimes she can be a little too much right up in your face. Kronos is half deaf and he's such a clown around the house. They are all so different in many ways!

  11. They love chicharones, and one of ours is very petite for a German Shepherd.

  12. My pup is just really fun and silly. She's always happy and friendly.

  13. My dog is a HUGE fan of swimming. Not in ponds or lakes, but in swimming pools! She insists on going with us to the pool and starts crying when she knows we are getting close. As soon as we arrive she runs to the pool and jumps in!

  14. i have 3 min schnauzer gals, the oldest almost 14 and deaf, used to be a real snuggler and is very smart, she loves to play ball, any size or type, the middle child is a mamma's gal, loves to be held and when she gets scared she runs to mama. the baby, now 5 is fearless, a real talker, not barker, she tries anything and everything.

  15. I really don't think my dog is so different from any other dogs, they do mostly the same thing
