Better with Pets
We believe pets and people are better together
Our love of our pets inspires us every day which is why here at Purina we believe that pets and people are better together.
The world of pet welfare and pet cause goes far beyond shelter walls and into rethinking what we can do to create a better world for pets and the people who love them. As a company guided by a passion for pets, we’re committed to using our scale to do more than just donate. We want to work shoulder to shoulder with pet welfare experts, to inspire pet lovers to get more involved, to change perceptions of shelter pets and to create more powerful bonds between pets and people.
We Believe Adopting a Pet is Good for People, Families and Communities
We believe that bringing a pet into your life is the first step toward a bond that will make both of your lives better. But don’t just take our word for it. There’s plenty of research to back it up. For example, having pets can reduce your blood pressure, in addition to decreasing feelings of loneliness, lowering cholesterol levels and encouraging physical activity.
Pets don’t just improve people’s lives – they improve communities. Did you know that having a pet present in the classroom can help alleviate tension and facilitate learning? Or that having a pet can help a patient recovering from trauma? Pets can do a lot for our communities – that’s why we work hard to encourage communities to embrace the true potential of pets.
We make regular pet food donations to shelters across
New Zealand to ensure that we are giving shelter pets the nutrition that they need to be healthy for their future families.
We encourage people to adopt by sharing the many ways pets benefit our lives. Through the making of Purina Pound Pups, we aim to change the perception of shelter dogs.
