HALO JOINS TAILSSPIN, WHOLE FOODS AND SAVANNAH COMMUNITY TO DONATE 10,000 MEALS

logosIt was thrilling to see the following story on WTOC 11 about the Savannah portion of our 2014 Holiday Kibble Drop:

Halo, along with Freekibble.com, teamed up with our partners TailsSpin and Whole Foods Market in Savannah, GA to donate 10,000 meals of Halo Spot’s Stew to Savannah Pet Rescue Alliance.

As you can see from the video, it’s not just adults who care about homeless pets – but kids, too!

We love seeing some of the youngest fans of animals get involved with helping pets. It’s definitely a reason to cheer. Want to join in the fun?

Share a photo of your pet with the hashtag #HaloFeeditForward and we’ll donate a meal on your behalf to help nurture healthier, more adoptable animals.

WANT THE FULL SCOOP ON #HALOFEEDITFORWARD ? HERE YOU GO!

Halo_Social_600x600What would your beloved pet wish for his furry friends still waiting in animal shelters?

The answer is powerfully depicted in a new North American campaign and video by Halo, Purely for Pets, Ellen DeGeneres’ natural pet food company.

“Every year, Halo donates one and a half million meals to help nurture healthier, more adoptable pets so your pet won’t be the only one with a beautiful coat, clear eyes, and lots of energy,” says Ellen. “I want to see your pet so share a photo with #HaloFeeditForward and we’ll donate a meal on your behalf. No selfies please.”

Called “#HaloFeeditForward,” the campaign asks pet lovers help decide where the donations will go by taking to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

MAN SPENDS 15 YEARS CREATING THE PURR-FECT CAT HOME

cathome-7Plenty of people indulge their favorite felines with toys, treats, special cat towers and more. But one man in southern Minnesota has taken the indulgence to a whole new level – by turning his entire home into a cat playground.

Greg Krueger has spent the last 15 years building elaborate tunnels, window platforms, overhead catwalks, cat towers, cozy hideouts and more throughout his home. He even has a garden filled with catnip outside the house.

“I just love trails and paths, and cats, of course,” Krueger said. “And so I’ve just linked those passions together,” he told local station WCCO.

HALO’S HEALTHY WEIGHT CHALLENGE—THE FINAL WEIGH-IN—SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR!

Faith2Faith has completed her Halo Healthy Weight Challenge and her story is one of success! Faith started the Challenge weighing 68 pounds. In just 12 weeks she has lost 7 pounds for a final weigh-in of 61 pounds!

Way to go Faith!

But Faith is not done yet. Her owner has been given instructions to continue weighing her every 2 weeks and working with her veterinarian to determine when Faith has reached her ideal weight. At that time, Faith will be able to eat a few more calories each day to maintain her new svelte frame.

For dogs—like Faith—who have previously struggled with being overweight, we do recommend continuing them on a calorie-controlled diet like the Halo Healthy Weight for the best management of their weight in the long run.

Faith was the second participant enrolled in the Halo Healthy Weight Challenge on THE EXPERT VET of the RADIO PET LADY NETWORK. Faith was successful in losing weight with a specially designed meal plan of Halo Healthy Weight natural dog food and extra fruits and veggies.
