why we exist

Petaluma is on a mission to create a more sustainable and humane agricultural system by using ingredients that offer optimal nutrition, reduced ecological harm, and humane treatment of farmworkers and animals.

WE SEE A FUTURE IN WHICH WE CARE FOR THE PLANET AS WELL AS WE CARE FOR OUR PETS

By feeding our pets with more sustainable ingredients, we will dramatically reduce our impact on the planet and leave more resources and opportunities for future generations. We must lessen the environmental burden of pet care to ensure that humans and pets can continue to benefit from each others’ companionship.

no animal ingredients

Animal ingredients are not nutritionally necessary and come with major baggage. We’ve removed animals from the pet food supply chain because that is the only way to guarantee that we are not inflicting unnecessary harm on other animals in the service of your pet. We don’t believe in treating some animals as meat machines while others become family members.

no animal testing

Dogs should live in homes, not laboratories. Traditional pet food companies test products on corporate-owned dogs living in shelter-like environments. We’ve put in the extra effort to avoid animal laboratory testing and instead use cutting-edge digestion modeling and volunteer in-home taste-testers.

support for farmworkers

Industrial agriculture systemically exploits farm workers and we strive to build a supply chain that provides better outcomes for the hard-working people that feed us and our pets. We cannot change the agricultural system alone but continuously seek out opportunities to support people, businesses, and organizations that are making agriculture more equitable and just.
