The Twelve Days of Clinics

I miss singing the 12 days of Christmas with you all, so I’m working through the 12 days of Clinics from a clinic perspective. Feel free to toss me ideas- we have 12 days to work through after all.

Shall we begin?


On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

StoryThanks to you, check out the noticeable results from The Animal Foundation in Las Vegas, NV:

The Animal Foundation received a Halo Food donation in conjunction with the One Picture Saves A Life Photography Project held in June 2013. The donated food was used help individuals that were struggling to make ends meet at home and needed some assistance feeding their pets.

The food was distributed to rescue partners as well to help them keep their costs down so that they can devote their funds to helping more pets in need. The donation of cat and dog food from Halo helped much-loved pets stay with their caring families during times of financial crisis. In addition, the food helped our rescue partners transfer more pets in need of care and attention beyond what our facility could provide. It is estimated that over 330 pets were helped by the food.

A woman and her children came into The Animal Foundation’s Receiving Office, obviously upset about surrendering their pets, two large pit bulls and a cat. When our staff asked why they were surrendering, she said that it was just getting too hard to feed them. She had lost her job and money was too tight to make ends meet. Our Receiving Manager told her, “If food is the only reason you are surrendering your pets, we can help with that.” Danielle received two big bags of Halo Food on 10/28. She accepted the food and was so grateful she offered to share her story. She and her children, all in tears, headed back home with their family intact, furry members included.”

Thank you The Animal Foundation for making a noticeable difference for pets in your community!

When you choose Halo pet food, made from natural, whole food ingredients, your pet won’t be the only one with a radiant coat, clear eyes and renewed energy. Halo feeds it forward, donating over 1.5 million meals annually.

Halo is proud to partner with and to achieve noticeable results for shelter pets together!

Twelve days til touchdown in San Diego.  We made it to LA and ironically, we’ve had only four rains days the entire West Coast walk, through Washington, Oregon, and Northern California and the week we arrive in LA, we’re greeted by a monsoon.  
Completely drenched in Malibu and now navigating around mudslides and flooding, we’re making our way through the 75 mile swath that is the LA area.  
Still, we’ve been trudging onward in the dreary drizzly, record breaking rainstorm sharing the message and spreading holiday cheer, the nearby pic was walking on Rodeo Drive, 
We’re on schedule to walk the final mile to the Mexico border Sunday December 14th and our friends are making final plans for the day’s events.  Between now and then we have a couple of events planned leading up to the final mile:  
Saturday Dec 6th.  4-6PM.  The Shore Break Hotel. For details, 714-465-4528.  
Tuesday Dec 9th. 2-4PM. VMSG. 31896 Plaza Dr. San Juan Capistrano.  
It’s been great having folks coming out and walking with us on our final stretch. To find out where you can join us for a mile or a day on our historic trek, the following sites will be posting our locations: 
Or on my Instagram – 2dogs2000miles.  And on Twitter hashtag #GoFuzzybuttsGo

Olate_Dog2Do you love women’s basketball and top canine talent? If so and you live near Minneapolis, you’re in for a treat on Sunday, December 7!

The Olate Dogs will be performing during halftime of the game between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Butler Bulldogs.

Despite their obvious affinity for a certain mascot at the game, we think the Olate Dogs will stay neutral.

Not able to make it to Minneapolis? Watch these dogs in the latest #RescueFilm and check their upcoming tour schedule!

Halo is proud to sponsor the Olate Dogs as they tour the country and demonstrate the potential of rescue dogs. It’s an honor to know that these amazing high-energy furry entertainers eat only Halo Vigor.
