Freekibblekat.com, dedicated to donating food to shelter cats, has a new partner. Halo, Purely for Pets, announced last month that it will officially sponsor the cat food donation program and its dog food donation site, Freekibble.com.
Created in 2008 by Mimi Ausland when she was 11 years old, Freekibble.com and Freekibblekat.com are online dog and cat trivia games with a mission to feed shelter pets in need. Readers answer daily trivia questions on the websites and, right or wrong, 10 pieces of kibble are donated to homeless dogs and cats.
The sites receive 100,000 combined daily visits. To date, the websites’ daily visitors have helped Freekibble donate 3,846,737 meals to hungry pets in shelters, rescues and food banks across the country. As official sponsor, Halo’s Spot’s Stew will now be the exclusive food donated by Freekibble.
“We are thrilled to partner with such an amazing young woman and her organization,” said Steve Marton, CEO, Halo, Purely for Pets. “Her desire to keep shelter pets fed, not with just any food, but with natural, healthy food, is commendable. We at Halo are honored to be able to help Freekibble fulfill their mission of feeding shelter pets in the best possible way.”
“Just like us, the quality of food that pets eat is so important,” said Mimi Ausland, creator of Freekibble.com and Freekibblekat.com. “We are really excited to be working with Halo to feed shelter dogs and cats the very best, all natural and nutritious food – it will make them happier and healthier while they wait to find a family of their own!”
“There are tens of thousands of dogs and cats in animal shelters across the country, all needing to be fed a good meal … and they deserve it!” Ausland was named the ASPCA and Humane Society of the United States Kid of the Year because of the impact Freekibble has had on feeding animals in need, and for the awareness she has created for shelter pets.
Halo, Purely For Pets uses natural ingredients and real meats in their pet food. Halo supported the United States Postal Service campaign to promote its 2010 social awareness stamp “Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet” to raise awareness of pet adoption. In conjunction with this campaign, Halo, Purely For Pets made a commitment to donate 1 million meals of Halo’s Spot’s Stew in 2010 to shelter pets awaiting adoption. They will continue this initiative with Freekibble.com to keep feeding hungry shelter pets across the country.
