Remember a few months ago when Ellen DeGeneres went kibbles and bits over Iggy? While I considered her on screen outburst genuine and honest, most people thought it made her look crazier than Aretha Franklin in a double wide fur coat. Well crazy or not, Ellen loves her some pets and has decided to put her money where her mouth is…literally (you’ll get that joke later).
The comedian turned talk show host just recently purchased Halo, a well known natural pet food company, and will be producing her own brand of pet food.
Ellen told Parade magazine that her food is SO natural that even humans can eat it. She said, “Ours is all human grade. It’s all natural. And yes, you can eat it. People love their animals so much so that they put little clothes on them and necklaces and booties and things like that. And if you love your animal, then you should feed them something that’s not dangerous for them. There’s a lot of poisonous stuff that they’re putting in a lot of that food, those by-products.”
When asked what her pet policy would be if she were a politician, Ellen said: “My pet policy would be to love them and give them as much respect as you would give any living thing and treat them kindly. They’re innocent little souls that are filled with unconditional love. And we should give them the same.”
Good questions and good answers, but let’s not forget that ALL animals should be respected…not JUST pets. If your dog (or you) has a hankering for some meat in a can, trot on over to Halopets.com.
