Help to Feed Thousands of Strays with a Click!

Meet the ASPCA Kid of the Year!

I just read the most amazing story in People Magazine. It was about this little girl, Mimi Ausland, who is 12 years old!
I can't believe it takes the little people to make the world a better place for animals. Earlier this year, Mimi Ausland of Bend, OR, decided to make a real difference in the lives of homeless animals. After months of research and planning, Mimi launched to provide healthy pet food to cats and dogs in area shelters.

Freekibble is an interactive site that asks visitors to answer a brief trivia question about animals. For every answer—right or wrong—the site donates ten pieces of kibble to shelter dogs. It was recently joined by, a site that posts feline-themed questions to benefit homeless cats. Since April 1, 2008, Mimi and the site’s sponsors—including Castor & Pollux, which donates pet food—have provided more than 51 million pieces of kibble to 11 shelters.

Late last month, Mimi and her family traveled to New York City to attend the ASPCA Humane Awards luncheon, where this special girl received the ASPCA Tommy Monahan Kid of the Year award for her hard work and dedication.
“It was such an amazing experience from start to finish,” Mimi reports. “The ASPCA is one of the biggest animal welfare organizations, and they take such good care of their animals. I was so happy when I knew I would be getting an award from them!”
Presented annually to exceptional pets and people who make a difference in the lives of animals, the ASPCA Humane Awards Program honors the special bond between humans and companion animals. Mimi joined seven other honorees at the Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Center on October 30 to receive her award.

She adds, “That’s why I love doing freekibble. Even though it might not get animals adopted—although it has happened before—it gives them healthy, natural food and helps make them happy.”
Let's all help her feed the hungry and homeless pets in shelters!! Please click and help!!
