Popular American talk-show hostess Ellen DeGeneres, in conjunction with her holistic pet care line Halo, recently announced that they had “delivered” on their promise of donating one million meals to shelter pets awaiting adoption.
“At Halo we want to promote healthy living for pets and eating good food is a big part of that,” explained DeGeneres. “So, we agreed to donate one million meals of Halo to shelter pets. I mean, imagine, an animal in a shelter, in a cage, lonely - a good meal is kinda all they have to look forward to, until you adopt them!"
Halo worked in conjunction with a number of non-profit organizations to donate the one million meals, including Freekibble, The Humane Society of the US, ASPCA, Pets for Patriots, and The National Canine Cancer Foundation amongst others.
In the USA, more than 4 million animals are euthanized due to lack of good homes. It is important to never purchase an animal from a breeder or pet store, take one home from the shelter instead.
