10,000 Meals For Minnesota's Feline Rescue, Inc!!!

Hi everyone, Katie here.

We're about to make your Monday SO much better than you ever expected it would be.  If you're a regular reader here, you know we sometimes get down on our hands and paws to ask for your votes. There's photo contests, blog contests, video contests and more. We received some amazing news this weekend.

Our video, *Waffles & The Red Dot* won the grand prize in Pet360's Tricks for Treats Contest. Halo Pets is the sponsor and... ok Waffles, I think you've earned this one. Take it away–


WAFFLES:  Thanx, Boss! Um, the Freekibble.com and Halo people are donating 10,000 meals to Minnesota's Feline Rescue, Inc. I'm not sure how many that is on account of I've never seen that many zeros before. 

The Boss says that we owe it all to YOU, our supercalafragalisticexpialodoshus friends! I don't know what THAT means either, but the Boss says it's pretty awesome.

KATIE:  Glogirly is hoping to be at the shelter when the food arrives to take some photos and pet some kitties. We'll be sure to share all the excitement with you.

This is the third time we've been personally involved with a donation like this from Halo. The shelter is SO excited to receive this food, we decided to find out a little bit more about Halo and their behind-the-scenes giving and philanthropy.

So Waffles, do you think you can handle this?

WAFFLES:  Um, let's see. Fill-Land-Trophy. Ok, I think I got it.


KATIE:  I don't know, Waffles. I better do the talking. 

Halo is the official sponsor of Freekibble which donates 1.5 MILLION meals per year to shelter pets. And did you know that Freekibble was founded by an 11-year-old girl? Her name is Mimi Ausland. Freekibble.com is a pet-related trivia site where more than 125,000 daily visitors come to answer questions. For every question answered, Freekibble donates 10 pieces of kibble to shelter pets. All of this adds up to more than 1.5 million meals.

The Halo Pet Foundation is committed to giving at least 5 times the national corporate average, and in fact has exceeded the national average by a factor of more than 10!

WAFFLES:  Halo is getting ready for a big road trip too! It's their 3rd Annual Kibble Drop. In early December, they'll be visiting 8 cities across the US and delivering 600,000 meals to shelter pets. 

I wonder if they'd like to borrow the Waffle Wagon???


VERY special thanks to Pet360 and Halo Pets for sponsoring this wonderful contest. And BIG thanks to YOU, our generous friends and readers. Your votes made all the difference. We have 10,000 more reasons to love you. So that brings the love total up to about 1,000,000,000,000...or so.

  6. Concats! And big thanks to me who told you about this contest in the first place. We play Free Kibble practically every day and we get more right than we get wrong. We even had a week-long winning streak a few months ago. I'm glad you took my advice and entered. After all you have to be in it to win it.

    We love that video and voted for you and now this well deserved win. HURRAY for all the kitties at Minnesota's Feline Rescue!

    With that said, we still have a spot open for you on our board of directors! Waffles can we entice you with a bigger wagon? lined with Mini pillows stuffed with treats? We also have nicer weather for more outdoor adventures... think about it!
