Petside.com recently revealed their list of 25 Pet People of 2011 and Ellen DeGeneres made the list for the second year in a row. Justin Bieber and Halo’s co-owner made the list at number 3 and 4 respectively because of their joined efforts to auction some items for Ellen’s charity ebay store to benefit animals in need.
Earlier this year, Justin donated a lock of his hair in a signed box and it sold for $40,000, all of which was donated to the animal rescue charity, The Gentle Barn.
Halo is proud to be connected with others on the list, including The Joplin Humane Society (#2) and the Beagle Freedom Project (#21) Back in June, Freekibble donated Halo Spot’s Stew directly to the Joplin Humane Society to help care for the hundreds of displaced dogs and cats from the tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri.
Recently, forty rescued lab beagles from The Beagle Freedom Project were given healthy and nutritious Halo meals in time for Thanksgiving.
We appreciate all of Ellen and other animal activists’ efforts to help animals in need and we hope to help more pets in 2012!
