Purina & Animal Rescue Foundation: Maddie & Lady

Voiceover, Dialog, Spoken Text, Script, or Lyrics

Hi, I'm Maria Menounos. Not only is Purina committed to giving quality nutrition in every bowl, but they also believe in the power of bringing pets and people together and that's why I'm here at Tony LaRussa's Animal Rescue Foundation to tell you about a special program that Purina proudly supports.

My name is Madeline. I was a sonar tech in the from 2000 to 2006. Lady has brought new light to my life.

The pets and vets program pairs shelter dogs with returning veterans. These veterans, in turn, train these shelter dogs to become their service dogs.

I'm really thankful to have her around and she's better than any medication that can give. And she helps me to explore the world. So that's been a real blessing.

This Thanksgiving, Purina knows you're thankful for your pets too, and we want to hear your story. So use the hashtag #DogThanking, tag it @Purina, and Purina will donate one dollar to arf for every story shared.
