Every pet deserves a chance to chase frisbees, cuddle up for naps and live a cherished life.
So we've made it our mission to champion and support orphaned and abandoned pets everywhere, in all ways that we can—from keeping their tummies content with nutritious foods to providing ongoing financial support for 160 caring shelters. See our full story about helping pets—and some happy endings (new beginnings!) in our video below:
Teaming Up With
Tireless and Dedicated Partners
The way we see it, pets never ask for anything—and always give their love unconditionally. So we’re committed to advocating on their behalf for no-kill shelters, anti-cruelty programs, and for healthcare, recovery and rehabilitation.
We’re proud to partner with these organizations, created by humans who love and care for all pets as we do: 4 Paws for Ability, the Pennsylvania SPCA, and St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.
Clearer eyes, softer skin, shinier coats—we’re pleased and amazed to hear from pawrents all the time about these wonderful benefits (and more) their Freshpet-nourished pets experience.
Now imagine bringing that same experience to shelter pets – millions of times over. How do you measure the impact of that?
Well, we think of it this way:
12,013,032 meals donated = millions of contented bellies.
Unleashing the Power of Giving
With Our Fresh Start Campaign
Every year, our Fresh Start campaign rallies animal rescues around the country to enter a giveaway for money towards the things they really need, but can’t afford.
So far, Fresh Start has unleashed remarkable results: A new intensive care unit. Additional shelter space with AC and better heating. New vans for transferring rescues out of high-kill shelters—and so much more. The Fresh Start program has proudly awarded nearly half a million dollars to no-kill shelters across the country since it began in 2018.
And this year, Fresh Start is back and bigger than ever, with $150k in grants for no-kill shelters in the US, and a star-studded panel of judges who are waiting to read about how your rescue pet changed your life! Head over to ThankYouRescues.com to learn more and enter before September 25.
We believe we can make truly good food for our pets, while being a force for good. We never stop pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
We’re a family of humans with a deep love for pets and a passion for nourishing them in all the best ways. This purpose guides our success as a company, and our strong relationships as true friends and colleagues.
