Tampa, Fla. (For Immediate Release) – Halo, Purely for Pets®, in collaboration with The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and GreaterGood.org, made a donation of their high quality mix ‘n mores™ to enhance more than 295,000 bowls of kibble and provide a protein boost to relocated shelter pets of the Louisiana flood tragedy.

The Halo mix ‘n mores™ donation was part of The HSUS disaster relief program that is helping to transfer adoptable animals to make room for Louisiana flood victims and save hundreds of pets’ lives. The program transported current shelter pets to higher-adoption areas so that local shelters could provide space for displaced pets and allow time for pet parents to be reunited with them.

“The HSUS has been on the ground providing disaster relief to Louisiana pet flood victims since the beginning but could not do it without the generosity of our various partners including Halo, “said Kim Alboum, shelter outreach and policy engagement director for The HSUS. “We are grateful Halo was able to quickly execute a significant donation to benefit many of the shelter dogs and cats who were transported and in need of food.”

Angels of Assisi located in Roanoke, Va. and Tulsa SPCA in Oklahoma, were the recipients of the Halo mix ‘n mores™ donation.

“Similar to humans in crisis, pets can have loss of appetite and many digestive issues when in an over-crowded shelter environment,” said Mathew Brown, director for the adoption center at Angels of Assisi. “The high-quality food Halo was able to donate to our shelter is helping to restore appetites and nourish our pets back to health.”

Mix ‘n mores™ are an ideal option for pets in crisis since they entice finicky palates and provide a protein boost. Halo developed mix ‘n mores to ensure pet parents have a whole-protein, freeze-dried food supplement from a trusted brand that has made nutritious, high quality ingredients its first priority for 30 years.

Unlike dehydrated protein, freeze-dried meat doesn’t shrink or toughen so it preserves the aroma and flavor of the meat and, when moistened, freeze-dried meat tastes like fresh meat. As with all Halo diets, supplements and treats, mix ‘n mores™ include only whole and wholesome ingredients and never include artificial colors, preservatives or flavors.

Rescued Dog Rescues Owner

You’ve probably seen the magnets and mugs that ask “Who Rescued Who [sic]?” and maybe even have one of your own. For Eva Hachey in New Brunswick, Canada, that question is more than rhetorical.

According to CTV News, Eva adopted her dog Bruno from her local SPCA. Most people would say that means that she saved Bruno’s life. However, recently Bruno returned the favor by saving Eva’s life.

Eva’s daughter, Angel Hutchinson, lives with her and normally sleeps quite soundly. However one night, Bruno began nipping at Angel’s fingers. “He was howling and crying and whining and dancing and I knew something was wrong.”

Angel reacted quickly. She first ran to her grandmother’s bedroom, but then saw Eva in a chair in the living room having a seizure. Angel called the paramedics who were able to help Eva. All Eva remembered was falling asleep, then waking to see “a whole bunch of paramedics” in her living room. The paramedics informed her that she had seizure. They also informed Eva that she had a potentially fatal ruptured brain aneurysm. It was good that Bruno got Angel to help her mom. As Angel said, “If it wasn’t for the dog, my mother wouldn’t be here.”

Eva told CTV News that she wanted to share Bruno’s story in hopes that it would encourage people to adopt from shelters. Although she acknowledges that not every shelter pet will be a literal lifesaver, she thinks that the love is worthwhile. Eva summed up her thoughts on pet adoption by coming back to love. As Eva said, “The only reward that we can get and give is love.”
