(Best Syndication News) - The NYSE Euronext (NYSE:NYX) used dogs to help open and close the trading day by ringing in the opening and closing bell. Shelter and service dogs were invited to the NYSE to help bring awareness to two charities.

Eukanuba joined Canine Companions for Independence to ring the opening bell. Iams teamed up with Helen Woodward Animal Center to ring the closing bell.

Iams rang the bell in honor of their “Iams Home 4 the Holidays”, which is one of the largest pet adoption drives. The pet adoption drive is in its 14th year. This year the drive is going on between October 1, 2012 and ends on January 2, 2013.

Iams is working with the Helen Woodward Animal Center to help find homes for pets. Helen Woodward Animal Center was the founder of the adoption drive and Iams supports the charity. Last year alone, Iams Home 4 the Holidays achieved 1.2 million pet adoptions.

Eukanuba helped ring in the opening bell with Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). A fundraiser kicked off for a one-of-a-kind Initial Puppy Offering for CCI’s first ever "IPO". The funds raised will help train assistance dogs that help children and adults with disabilities. The trained service dogs are given to the people in need free-of-charge.
