5:30pm until 7:30pm
Halo, Purely for Pets, the natural pet food company co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres, is hosting a discussion, book signing and reception with “America’s Veterinarian” and bestselling author, Dr. Marty Becker, on June 21, 2013.
The event is part of Halo’s month long event, “Halo City Tails – NYC,” a Pop up Shop which unites pet lovers, provides easy ways for visitors to help pets in need, and engages customers with the Halo brand and philanthropic mission.
“I’ve never seen a company do anything quite like this, so I wanted to be part of Halo’s effort to help pets and the people who love them,” says Dr. Becker, whose current focus is “taking the pet out of petrified….and putting pets back into practices.”
Throughout the month, Pop up Shop visitors can meet adoptable pets from local shelters and rescues, enter weekly raffles, attend pet performances and hear from experts like Dr. Becker.
New Yorkers and visitors alike can “pop in and do good” for pets by supporting the Halo Pet Foundation through charitable contributions. Donors receive merchandise from the Ellen Show, chances to win prizes like shelter donations, tickets to see the Ellen Show in Los Angeles, and more. And, 100% of donations to the Halo Pet Foundation (http://halopets.org/) are granted to animal welfare and rescue groups. Halo, Purely for Pets underwrites all operating expenses.
Nearly 100 Halo retailers across the city look forward to participating in City Tails. For every dollar’s worth of Halo pet food that customers buy during the event, Freekibble.com will donate one meal of Halo Spot’s Stew to a New York area shelter. City Tails has information about participating Halo retailers and Halo food coupon giveaways (only redeemable at Halo retailers).
