About Home 4 the Holidays


Iams Home 4 the Holidays has grown to become one of the most successful pet adoption and shelter-support campaigns in the world. The program began in 1999, in San Diego County’s Helen Woodward Animal Center, which spearheaded the effort with the support of Iams. Our partnership continues today. Although the campaign is based around the holiday season, our support of pet shelters, rescues, and owners is maintained throughout the year.
