Denver, CO (August 26, 2014) – LoveAnimals.org, an innovative nonprofit crowdfunding site focused solely on supporting animal projects, today announced that Halo, Purely for Pets, Ellen DeGeneres’ natural pet food company, has become the site’s founding sponsor.

Groups or individuals can easily create a fundraising project for a 501c3 organization that helps animals, both domestic pets and wildlife. And, people looking for worthy projects to back can search for an effort that strikes a chord with them. Donations range from $2 to thousands of dollars.

RESCUE CAT WATCHES OVER DIABETIC GIRL

pippa-lgWhen the Jansa Family adopted a small rescue cat, Pretty Pippa, from the RSPCA in Kent, UK, they never dreamed the kitty would save the life of the family’s 8-year-old daughter, Mia – over and over again.

Mia has type-one diabetes, which requires her to constantly monitor her blood sugar levels.

Incredibly, the little black and white rescue cat has a special ability: Pippa can detect when Mia’s blood sugar drops and the girl goes into a hypoglycemic episode.

CHICAGO PET PARENTS – GET YOUR DOG A FREE BLOOD TEST

DrDonnaSpector-Morgan2011_250wOn Saturday, September 6th from 9 am – 2 pm CT, Come out and meet Halo’s own Dr. Donna Spector and get your dog a FREE BLOOD TEST!

Find out if your dog is well protected against the deadly canine viruses—parvovirus, distemper and adenovirus. The testing will be done at The Animal Medical Center at Fort Sheridan located at 720 North Sheridan Road, Highwood, IL 60040.

Learn about a healthy alternative to automatically re-vaccinating your dog every year. Talk to Dr. Donna about the benefits of testing blood for vaccine antibodies (called a vaccine titer test) instead of vaccinating—and possibly over-vaccinating our dogs.

A special thank you to Spectrum Labs, the creators of VacciCheck Antibody Test Kit! They have donated the test kits to help us spread the word about this healthy vaccination alternative!

BARTENDER RECEIVES $1,000 TIP TO PAY FOR HER DOG’S SURGERY

Tucker-2Most people will do anything for their own sick pet, but one couple went the extra mile for someone else’s sick pet.

According to CNN, last week, Christina Summitt, a bartender at the Holiday Inn in Clinton, New Jersey, was serving drinks when a couple of friendly customers asked her about her paw print tattoo.

Like most pet lovers, Summitt was happy to talk about how she volunteers for a local dog rescue and dotes on her beloved Great Dane-Lab mix, Tucker.

But that night she was worried about Tucker. He had swallowed a plastic ball and was currently at the vet hospital after he’d undergone emergency surgery earlier that day.

HOMEWARD PET ADOPTION CENTER NOTICEABLE RESULTS DONATION REPORT

HPAClogoWhen you choose Halo pet food, made from natural, whole food ingredients, your pet won’t be the only one with a radiant coat, clear eyes and renewed energy. Halo feeds it forward, donating over 1.5 million meals annually.

Halo is proud to partner with Freekibble.com and GreaterGood.org to achieve noticeable results for shelter pets together!

Here is a recent report from Homeward Pet Adoption Center in Woodinville, WA:

The 10,000 meals of Halo Spot’s Stew have helped Homeward Pet to continue providing high quality meals to the homeless dogs and cats in our care.

…she took a few minutes to check it out and then proceeded to chow down.

The average stay for the dogs and cats here at Homeward Pet is approximately 2 weeks with each dog and cat fed twice a day. 10,000 Halo Spot Stew meals will feed over 360 animals by the middle of August 2014.

One of our shelter cats, Snowflake, was a very finicky eater and had not liked the kibble we had been feeding her. Once we replaced her food with Halo Spot’s Stew, she took a few minutes to check it out and then proceeded to chow down.

Thank you Homeward Pet Adoption Center for making a noticeable difference for pets in your community!
