Shannon Vogel has been all over the world. She’s also been a candy maker, a chef, a mom, a grandma and now a truck driver. Being a woman on the road by herself presented a new set of challenges in her life. Shannon’s dog, Cora, helps her every step of the way.
Mutts4Trucks at MATS 2020
Mobil Delvac™ and PEDIGREE® brands have teamed up to launch the “Mutts4Trucks” campaign, a new program pairing truck drivers with shelter dogs. The new program hopes to make a positive impact on the mental and physical well-being of truckers and shine a light on the benefits of dog adoption by pairing truck drivers with shelter dogs in need of forever homes, in an effort to create a lasting friendship, beneficial for both dog and owner.
The Mutts4Trucks campaign will have a dog adoption event on Friday, March 27, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT at the 2020 MATS in Booth 91100, just outside of the main South Wing Entrance.
Drivers in attendance will be able to adopt a dog from the Kentucky Humane Society and receive complimentary dog bowls, a leash and more.
Drivers need to show their driver’s license while adopting a dog.
What do dog food and diesel engine oil have in common?
Truckers. Truckers are vital to the American economy. They haul over 70% of the nation’s freight. In fact, three quarters of the U.S. depends on the trucking industry to provide goods to communities across the country. But trucking can be a lonely job. Truckers have very little interaction with others in the regular course of their daily hauls. They spend, on average, 240 nights away from home per year. Nearly a third of drivers say being alone all day and away from their families is a significant issue affecting their mental health.
Which made us think – how can we bring more good to a community that brings so much good to us? Simple – by bringing them dogs. Studies have shown that owning a dog can drastically decrease isolation, depression and cardiovascular disease.
That’s why two first class brands have come together in a unique way to demonstrate how dogs can make a positive impact on the mental and physical health of truckers.
PEDIGREE® is one of America’s best-selling dog food brands. Mobil Delvac™™ is one of the world’s best-selling diesel engine oils. Together, they’ve teamed up to help bring dogs in need of a home with truckers in need of company.
And that’s good for dogs. Good for truckers. And better for everyone on the road.Learn More
