Halo would like to thank the Petco Foundation and its Executive Director, Susanne Kogut, for helping rescues at the Dog Film Festival, which was made possible with a grant from the foundation. As Executive Director, Kogut works with key influencers in the pet industry, driving interesting and innovative collaborations to solve critical animal welfare issues.

After the Holiday Wishes campaign, Halo is proud to work with the Petco Foundation once again to make a difference in the pet community.

The LA event took place earlier this month on June 5th with an Afternoon Pooch Party at the VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital on June 4th.

The Dog Film Festival grew out of Tracie Hotchner’s desire as a pet wellness advocate to expand her Radio Pet Lady Network‘s outreach to educate about adoption, pet wellness issues and philosophical aspects of pets in our lives. The Festival is a unique way of honoring dogs as true family members by bringing together like-minded people to experience global filmmakers’ celebration of the human-canine bond. Tracie has chosen films that inspire, educate and entertain, and are appropriate for all members of the (human) family.

As a Film Festival Sponsor, in partnership with Freekibble and GreaterGood.org, we are proud to announce that we will be making a 10,000 bowl donation of Halo food to The Lange Foundation and the Downtown Dog Rescue in LA.

Tracie Hotchner, Dog Film Festival Founder with Petco Foundation's Executive Director, Susanne Kogut

As always, Halo will donate a bowl to a shelter every time YOU buy.

Barn Cat Demands Rides on Farm Animal’s Backs

Barn Cat at Snowfall Ranch in Elizabeth, Colorado

At Snowfall Ranch in Elizabeth, Colorado, you’ll find the typical array of horses, pigs, goats, miniature donkeys and lambs. You’ll also find a barn cat named Teton who rules the roost.

When the Joanna and Scott Shaw, owners of Snowfall Ranch, began a renovation, they immediately saw mice so they decided to get a mouser. “Right from the start, Teton had spunk,” the Shaws said of the cat they adopted for the job. As much as they tried to keep him in the “cat area” he would not stay there. Instead of hanging in his cat house with food and fluffy blanket, he wanted to hang out with the barn animals. Eventually the team gave up trying to keep Teton contained and let him go where he pleased.

Read more about Teton, the Barn Cat who demands rides on farm animal’s backs.

Misty the Senior Cat “Became More Active” on Halo Spot’s Stew

Misty the black cat | Halo Pets

We recently received this message from Corinne Bailey about her senior cat named Misty. She wrote:

“Hello! Wanted to tell the folks at Halo Pets that our family is very impressed with Halo Spot’s Stew cat food. One of our cats, Misty, is appropriately fourteen years old. She’s a black cat with green eyes. Misty was recently diagnosed with compromised kidneys. She was losing weight, was listless and mostly slept. Her fur was dull and rough.  The vet had recommended very expensive treatments. We decided to first try a pet food with reduced protein and high moisture content. Halo’s Spot Stew was recommended by our local pet store.

After a few days on Spot’s Stew, Misty became more active. After a couple of months, she’s put on some weight. She’s active and playing again. And her coat is shiny and healthy looking. We know she still has kidney issues and as an elderly cat, her time is probably short. But for now, we’re very happy that we found Halo’s product. We’ve seen a miraculous difference in our Misty!

Thank you for a healthy product that we trust!”

Thank you Corinne and we are so happy to hear that Misty is doing well on Halo Spot’s Stew natural cat food.
