Hollywood Movie to Feed Local SPCA Dogs

Hollywood Movie to Feed Local SPCA Dogs

Dog lovers and their families can do their bit for charity this summer all by heading to an adorable new movie, that’s well...about dogs!

Pedigree and Hoyts have joined forces to offer preview screenings of new film Hotel For Dogs and all you need for entry is a can or packet of Pedigree dog food!

The food will be donated to SPCA’s throughout New Zealand to feed the numerous dogs who ultimately end up in its care during the busy holiday season.

Pedigree’s Marketing Manager Oliver Downs says Hotel for Dogs is a wonderful celebration of our canine friends and the magic they bring to our lives.

“We are thrilled to offer families the chance to see such a positive and uplifting movie. We believe every dog deserves love, good food and a good home. Sadly we know that this is not the case for many New Zealand dogs and we’re glad we’re able to help the SPCA with the valuable work they do,” he says.

Downs says the company hopes to donate 500 cans and packets of dog food to the well deserving charity.

Hotel For Dogs is a comedy adventure movie that shows how far love and a great imagination can take you!

The movie stars 16-year-old Emma Roberts as Andi who along with her younger brother Bruce (Jake T.Austin) are forced to find their dog ‘Friday’ a new home when their foster parents say “no pets”.

The pair stumble across an abandoned hotel and transform it into the perfect home for Friday, themselves and every stray dog in town!
