Purina ONE, Derek Hough 28-Day Challenge

Purina ONE is teaming up with award-winning choreographer, dancer, actor and singer, Derek Hough, to help adoptable pets find their forever homes.

Nestlé’s Purina ONE has teamed up with award-winning choreographer, dancer, actor and singer, Derek Hough, to help adoptable pets find their forever homes through the company’s 28-Day Challenge. For every new person who registers to take the 28-Day Challenge from now through Aug. 31, Purina ONE will donate $1 to the Petfinder Foundation (up to $28,000) to waive adoption fees at shelters and rescue groups and help more dogs and cats find their forever homes.

“I’ve always been passionate about rescuing pets and I love that Purina ONE has been supporting shelters for years by making donations to help every pet find their forever home,” said Hough, spokesperson for Purina ONE.

Purina ONE has supported shelters for 15 years. Since 2015, through the Purina Shelter Champions program, Purina ONE has donated nearly eight million pounds of dog and cat food, worth more than $11 million, officials said. To date, these efforts have supported the placement of more than 904,822 cats and dogs in their forever homes, officials added.

In addition to helping adoptable pets find their forever homes, Purina ONE provides shelters with pet food.

“Providing your pet with the proper nutrition they need to be happy and healthy starts from the inside,” said Kurt Venator, DVM, Ph.D., chief veterinary officer at Purina, which is based in St. Louis. “When you feed your pet Purina ONE, like I do, you’ll notice a visibly healthy pet in just 28 days; signs of which may include healthy energy, a shiny coat, bright eyes and strong, healthy teeth and gums. Purina ONE will also positively impact pets on the inside by supporting a strong immune system and a strong, healthy heart.”
