Our next guest is best known for showing his passion on the dance floor on shows like dancing with the stars — where his team won a record six times. But dancer, choreographer, actor, and singer Derek Hough is also passionate about helping find homes for shelter pets – which is why the superstar is teaming up with Purina one for its 28-day challenge to help adoptable pets find their forever homes and help raise money for the Petfinder Foundation.
With two dogs and two cats, Hough knows the happiness adopting a pet can bring into your home. Purina One has been working with animal shelters for years, so teaming up with them for this 28-day challenge was a no-brainer, he says.
Over 6 million pets enter shelters in America every year and only about 3 million end up finding homes. During the 28-day challenge, for every person who signs up, Purina One will donate $1 toward waiving adoption fees, giving these pets a better chance at leaving the shelter.
