Ellen DeGeneres is sure to get a Woof Woof! and plenty of tail wags from rescued animals across the US this holiday season.
The Emmy-winning daytime hostess has teamed up with Halo, Purely for Pets to deliver one million meals to shelter pets awaiting adoption.
Ellen and Halo have partnered with a number of non-profit organizations — including Freekibble, The Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, Pets for Patriots, and The National Canine Cancer Foundation — to help feed homeless animals this Christmas. The campaign launched when the Postal Service unveiled its “Animal Rescue: Adopt A Shelter Pet” social awareness postage stamp in April.
“At Halo we want to promote healthy living for pets and eating good food is a big part of that. 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!” Ellen said in a statement Thursday.
