A Dog Brings Back the Love Courtesy of LOBO/Vetor Zero

From the release:

According to the World Health Organization (WHO),* 5.8% of Brazilians suffer from depression. In that state, it’s common for people to think that life has no meaning and that whatever they’ve lost will never come back.

But many of those who are ready to give up on hope and throw away their will to go on eventually find love and happiness brought back to them in a very simple way: the presence of a dog in their lives.

To reinforce the positive effect that dogs have on humans, PEDIGREE® turned to the most common game between a caretaker and their pet: throwing something for the dog to fetch and bring back. The brand used this playful activity to launch a campaign encouraging adoption, with creative development by AlmapBBDO.

In addition to an animated short telling a beautiful, poetic story, the initiative included the creation of a line of fetch toys emblazoned with the words “love,” “happiness,” “life,” and “hope,” which were sent out to influencers and people who had recently been through a difficult experience.”
