On Thursday, December 15th, Best Friends Animal Society, Kanab, UT was the 1st stop for the FreeKibble truck heading West. There were 40,000 meals of Halo Spot’s Stew for dogs and cats delivered.
Best Friends Animal Society recently told its supporters, “Best Friends understands the importance of proper nutrition and a balanced diet. That’s why we were so excited about the very generous donation from Halo.”
Best Friends’ DogTown Manager, John Garcia, adds, “Not only do our dogs love Halo’s Spot’s Stew, the quality of which is absolutely amazing, they find the Liv-a-Littles treats to be so irresistible that we can get them to do just about anything.”
Halo, Purely for Pets, and FreeKibble.com teamed up to deliver 400,000 delicious, nutritious holiday meals of Halo Spot’s Stew to animal shelters, rescues and food banks “Koast-to-Koast”! On Monday, December 12th, TWO full trucks of tasty kibble left Lebanon, TN… one headed West, and the other one headed East, for the BIGGEST Kibble Drop to date.
The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary at Angel Canyon is home on any given day to about 2,000 dogs, cats, and other animals, which come from shelters and rescue groups around the country for special care they can only receive at Best Friends. Most of the animals who find their way to Best Friends have special physical or behavioral needs, and their expert staff of veterinarians, trainers and caregivers offer them all the help they require.
Best Friends is guided by a simple philosophy: kindness to animals builds a better world for all of us. Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets campaign created a new vision: A grassroots effort to place dogs and cats that were considered “unadoptable” into good homes and to reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs.
Best Friends has led some of the largest animal rescue efforts in recent history. These rescues include natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina, wartime situations, and animal hoarding or failed shelter situations where hundreds of dogs and cats need urgent and continuing care for many months before they can be placed in good new homes. With its sanctuary and rescue experience, Best Friends is the only organization in the country capable of mounting such major rescue efforts.
Best Friends offers workshops, internships, training programs and conferences to help individuals, groups and communities to set up and manage their own shelter, rescue, adoption and spay/neuter programs.
Here at Halo we are big fans of Best Friends, and are long-time supporters of their great work. Click here to read more.
