Ellen DeGeneres and Halo, Purely for Pets teamed up to donate 1 million meals to shelter dogs.
The initiative was originally announced March 17, 2010, on DeGeneres' show. Halo announced that this goal was recently completed, ensuring shelter pets have healthy food to eat and raising awareness of pet adoption.
