Mimi Ausland is an inspiring young advocate for homeless animals. Now 16, Mimi started Freekibble.com, a website that donates food to shelter animals, when she was just 11 years old.
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 pet food to shelter animals. We were so inspired by Mimi’s ingenuity that we named her ASPCA Kid of the Year in 2008.
Since then, Freekibble has fed nearly 8 million meals at shelters, rescues and food banks across the country. The ASPCA is now honored to be among the shelters receiving the program’s monthly donations of HALO Spot's Stew to feed our own cats and dogs.
