Halo, in partnership with Freekibble.com and GreaterGood.org, recently donated enough mix ‘n mores to the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Shelter (AARCS) to enhance 188,000 bowls of kibble! Because of the mix ‘n mores, pets at AARCS will find that their bowls not only get a boost in terms of taste and smell, but also a boost of high quality protein.
There are many reasons shelter pets might not show much of an appetite. In the same way that people sometimes get an upset stomach when they’re stressed, the same can happen to shelter pets. When that happens shelter volunteers and fosters can struggle to entice pets into eating – even when the food is high quality! Every shelter is familiar with the difficulty of piquing a stressed pet’s interest in food. Often, it’s one of the first tasks that a shelter can face before they can do any training or health work for homeless pets.
As Lindsay Black at AARCS said, “Helping restore appetites and nourish our pets back to health is the first step toward preparing them to be adopted into a new loving home.” It’s important to Halo to do what we can to help pets find and stay in loving homes.
