This holiday season, homeless pets across the nation are receiving much-needed holiday meals thanks to to Freekibble.com and Ellen DeGeneres’ natural pet food company, Halo, Purely for Pets. DeGeneres, who co-owns Halo, Purely for Pets, has teamed up with 17-year-old Freekibble.com founder Mimi Ausland to launch the third annual Holiday Kibble Drop.

During the Holiday Kibble Drop, 500,000 meals of all-natural Halo Spot’s Stew will be delivered to pets at 65 shelters across the country.

Founded by Ausland when she was just 11, Freekibble.com has donated more than 11 million meals to shelters and rescues since 2008. Each day, its website features a new trivia question. Every time visitors answer a question, right or wrong, they earn 10 pieces of kibble for homeless pets.

Helping homeless pets find their forever homes is a cause close to DeGeneres’ heart, too.

“Pet adoption is something I’m extremely passionate about,” DeGeneres says. “I believe that by working together, we can find good homes for the millions of homeless and abandoned pets out there.”
