How Rudy the Picky Pug Became The Star of Our Freshpet Commercial
At Freshpet, we don’t play favorites with breeds. Big and small, purebred and mutts, we’re the kind of proud pet parents who fall in love with every dog we meet. But even we’ll admit, there’s something so uniquely charming (and entertaining) about pugs that they’re just hard to resist. So when we first heard about Rudy the pug, who went on a hunger strike…Read More >>

What chef Troy prepared exceeded all of our expectations. In each…Read More >>

We teamed up with the Apparently Kid to talk all things pets!
The moment we first saw Noah Ritter, we collectively fell in love with him here at Freshpet. Charmingly known as the “Apparently Kid”, you may know him from his interview with a local news team that became an internet sensation, or his recent appearance on The Ellen Show.

Freshpet and the History of Pet Food
It took a long time, but our pets are finally being fed like we would the rest of our family members: with fresh, all natural ingredients from the fridge. However, it wasn’t always this way. For nearly 70 years, food options for dogs and cats remained largely unchanged: dry, extruded kibble or canned wet food. But in 2006, with a simple idea that…Read More >>
