Our Community Partners
We are proud to support leading charities who share our values, from pet welfare organisations to those promoting responsible pet ownership.
At Purina, our passion for pets, as well as our commitment to helping loving pet owners give their pets everything they need to stay healthy and happy, goes far beyond our products.
We also see it as our responsibility to nurture and support deserving causes, to promote the highest standards of pet care, to prevent cruelty and to share our understanding and experience with others.
We are proud to support, in a variety of ways, leading charities who share our values, from pet welfare organisations to those promoting responsible pet ownership. Our philosophy is to work together with key partners to create programs that bring real, tangible benefits to pets and the people who love them.

Every shelter pet deserves a second chance at life. Through adoption, our four-legged friends are able to leave their pasts of neglect and abandonment behind them and become beloved family members and lifelong companions.

PRO PLAN and Dogs NZ
Purina PRO PLAN is a proud partner of Dogs NZ since 2020. Dogs NZ is the largest organisation of dog owners in New Zealand with a strong focus on healthy, active, well-mannered dogs and responsible dog ownership.
We share many of the same beliefs as Dogs NZ on the role that our companion animals lay in our society, and importance of responsible dog breeding through the Dogs NZ Breeders Code of Conduct and having a well-trained dog with the Canine Good Citizen programme.
As part of this partnership, Dogs NZ and Purina support NZ dog owners and breeders in highlighting the important role that nutrition plays in all stages of the dog’s life.
