Our Story
Our Story

The Halo story started with a very sick pet named Spot and his pet parent, who would not give up on him. When the premium foods the vet recommended weren’t helping Spot’s digestive, skin, shedding, and odor problems, the vet said they were out of options. But Spot’s pet parent consulted a chef/nutritionist friend who noticed the difference between what’s in typical pet food—rendered, powdered “meat meals” and highly processed ingredients—and the whole foods in their own kitchens. Using their whole-food ingredients, they created what came to be known as Halo Spot’s Stew. Spot devoured it and soon his health transformed. When friends heard the story they asked for the recipe to cook it for their own pets, and Halo was born.

Our philosophy—that WHOLE Makes a Whole Lot of Difference—drives our holistic approach to ingredient sourcing, recipes, nutritional value, the welfare of ALL animals, and our overall mission to change the way companion animals are fed and farm animals are raised...for the better.

We think it’s a great story. And it’s a lot to tell. So on bags and cans of Halo cat food and dog food, you’ll find icons that help us tell more of the story.

High-Quality Ingredients

WHOLE Meat and Non-GMO Fruits & Vegetables

Halo uses only real WHOLE meat, poultry, or fish, and no “meat meal” of ANY kind. Halo says “NO” to animals raised with antibiotics, genetically modified feeds, artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives.

All the fruits and vegetables we use in our natural dog food and cat food are sourced from farmland that prohibits the use of Genetically Modified Seeds.

All Breeds and Life Stages

Healthy, Complete, and Balanced Nutrition

Our dog food and cat food varieties meet the high-protein needs of growing kittens and puppies, the daily needs of adult cats and dogs, and the optimal calorie content and formulations for small breed dogs, indoor cats, overweight pets, and senior cats and dogs.

Cage Free, Pasture Raised, Wild Caught

OrigiNative Sourcing

Our goal is to bring our farming and ranching practices back to a more original and native state that rejects the factory farm model of close confinement, animals raised with antibiotics, and genetically modified feeds.

Mission-Driven

Helping Animals In Need

At Halo, we believe that each and every animal impacts our lives and ultimately plays a role in our collective well-being. This includes companion animals, farm animals, and sheltered animals.

Halo helps promote adoption with The Humane Society of the United States and provides food to partner shelters for cats and dogs that The HSUS rescues from natural disasters and abuse.

Halo donates both dollars and food to the Halo Pet Foundation to help promote responsible pet ownership, eliminate abuse, and reduce the overpopulation of uncared-for pets.

Through our #HaloFeedItForward program we donate more than 1,500,000 bowls of dog food and cat food to pet shelters every year.
