As an actor he has brought stories to life on both the big and small screens, and now Josh Duhamel is using his star wattage to shine a spotlight on a storytelling campaign that is helping shelter dogs as they wait for their happily ever after with a forever family to begin.
The star, who premiered the See What Good Food Can Do campaign at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival alongside doggedly devoted athlete David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox, recently paid a visit to the Rovers who are currently residing at The Humane Society of Utah, which has provided care and comfort for adoptable companion animals since 1960.
Becoming fast friends with the shelter dogs as he played with, bathed and filled the pups bowls with Pedigree dog food, Duhamel reminisced about the four-pawed pal who ignited his passion for compassion for animals in need.
“My adopted dog Meatloaf was my inspiration for beginning to work with shelters and it means so much to me to partner with PEDIGREE, a brand that believes in caring for and finding dogs loving homes as much as I do,” remarked Josh Duhamel. “There are so many dogs waiting in shelters that just need good food a little help, and together we want to make a difference.”
