Introducing Freshpet Acts of Kindness

By: Katie

At Freshpet, our mission is to bring the power of fresh food to pets. We believe it is important to do so in a way that is good for our pets, our people, and the planet that we live on, and each day we come to work with this goal in mind.

 

As part of our mission, we’re excited to introduce a new program called Freshpet Acts of Kindness. Every week, a member of our Freshpet family will be doing something special for deserving pets, and for the families that give them so much. Our Freshpet employees will even be given an extra day off of work to give back to their communities as a part of our Acts. We’ll share a new story each week and we hope you’ll follow along.

 

We’re excited to see what the next year of kindness brings. We know that we’ll learn a lot along the way, and we hope to really make a difference for the animals and people we meet.

 

We’re happy to share Freshpet Act of Kindness #1:

 

One of our friends Chelsea has taken on a wonderful responsibility: fostering shelter cats before their adoption. As a cat lover, Chelsea is only too happy to bring these kitties into her apartment.

This past week, Chelsea welcomed a new visitor to her home: Hector. A former “bodega cat”, Hector lived in an NYC deli for five years before he was put up for adoption. When he got to Chelsea’s house, he was acting a bit shy—staying in her bathtub or under her bed. He would only come out to eat his food in the middle of the night. It was clear he was feeling a little homesick.

 

To make things a little more comfortable for Hector, last week we brought him a nice soft bed to sleep on, and a bag of our Freshpet Vital Chicken, Ocean Whitefish and Egg cat food recipe.

 

And we’re so happy to say that as of yesterday, Chelsea spotted Hector sleeping on his new bed with his plate licked clean. He’s even spending some time on Chelsea’s lap, where he’s finally feeling right at home.

 

If you know of a pet or family member who deserves an Act of Kindness, we want to hear from you! Email us at online@freshpet.com, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter.

 

We’re looking forward to spreading kindness together, one act at a time.
