Freekibble.com Donating 500,000 Healthy Holiday Meals of Halo Pet Food to Pets in Need Again!
11 December, 2013
Petpav is so impressed with Halo Pets and Freekibble.com’s mission in providing food to pets in need. In fact, this holiday season, homeless pets across the nation will be looking and feeling their best, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres and Halo Pets. For the third year in a row, Freekibble.com and Ellen DeGeneres’ natural pet food company, Halo, Purely for Pets, will make the holidays brighter for homeless dogs and cats across the nation.
The 2013 Inspire Tour
During the 2013 Holiday Kibble Drop “Inspire Tour,” Halo and Freekibble.com will deliver more than 500,000 meals to pets in need. The Kibble Drop trucks, including two 18-wheelers packed full of food, will make a combined 12 stops throughout this holiday season.
At each Kibble Drop location, 5-8 shelters will receive a substantial food donation in honor of a special, inspirational pet in that city.
“Supporting shelters is part of our company’s mission,” says Halo CEO Steve Marton. “We are inspired by the stories of hope and love we hear every day – and want to honor those pets, pet owners and organizations who exemplify the incredible bond we have with our pets.”
Halo retail partners in many of the cities along the Kibble Drop route have generously provided a place where area shelters and rescues can meet the truck and pick up their Freekibble.com donation of Halo’s Spot’s Stew natural pet food.
The Holiday Drop provides homeless pets with great food
The Holiday Kibble Drop provides homeless pets the highest quality food possible, helping shelter pets look and feel their best, sometimes helping them find their forever homes. In fact, in a survey of 85 shelter professionals, 71% said that better food quality “definitely helps” dogs and cats to get adopted.
Since 2008, Freekibble.com has donated 11.5 million meals to shelters and rescues. As Freekibble.com’s official pet food sponsor since 2010, Halo donates the kibble distributed to shelters and rescues throughout the U.S.
2013 Kibble Drop Cities include: Nashville, TN; Washington, DC: Raleigh, NC; Philadelphia, PA; Greenwich, CT; New York, NY; Wichita, KS; Phoenix, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; San
Francisco, CA; Bend, OR.
Participating retailers include: Phydeaux, Doggie Style, Pet Pantry Warehouse, All Paws, Pet Club, At Your Service Pets, Red Barn Feed and Saddlery, and Pet Food Express.
