WellPet – Why Work With Us?


  

For over 100 years, we've delivered on the promise of doing whatever it takes to make the healthiest natural products for the pets that depends on us. Today, our team of animal lovers, nutritionists and vets at WellPet continuously aspire to craft wholesome, nutritious food for your family from our family, to bring more love and joy to meal time. We always put pet health first.

 

At Wellness, we do things the right way. It's true. Mealtime is more than just a bowl of food. It's the foundation to a longer and healthier life, together. That's why we craft delicious recipes that use simple, natural ingredients—without any fluff or fillers.We have been crafting natural pet food for nearly 100 years and our belief in balance guides everything that we create. 

 

 

 

For almost 20 years, Holistic Select® has been committed to helping your best friend live their best life. We've perfected our recipes to give pets the digestive support & balanced nutrition they need to be a happy healthy part of your family for years to come. Our Recipes feature the most comprehensive & digestive health support with guaranteed levels of probiotics, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and natural fiber. Healthy digestion is critical to your pet's health, offering Balanced Nutrition by helping them break down food and absorb more nutrients, Immune Health by supporting the 70% of their immune system that lives in the digestive track, and Regularity by moving food through the body efficiently and reducing gas, bloating, and discomfort.

 

 

 

Old Mother Hubbard’s yummy snacks start with all-natural ingredients like chicken, cheddar cheese, apples, carrots, sweet potatoes and oatmeal. Each biscuit is slowly oven-baked to preserve the natural flavors in all the varieties dogs love to catch, chew and eat. 

 

 

 

At Eagle Pack®, we know you count on your pet to be by your side through all of life’s journeys. For over 30 years, we’ve energized best friends everywhere by providing them quality, natural nutrition without fillers or artificial preservatives. Our foods deliver the right balance of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, antioxidants and omega fatty acids for results you can see – shiny coat, bright eyes, good digestion and energetic spirit. Our innovative formulas have been continuously researched with trainers and vets since 1985 to ensure they naturally fuel your pet’s daily adventures, both big and small.

 

 

 

Sojos complete and balanced foods combine the easy prep and shelf-stable convenience of kibble with the unsurpassed nutrition offered in real, raw food. The only thing missing is water. When you add it back, the abundance of flavor and natural nutrients spring back to life.

 

 

 

WHIMZEE’s is company of dog-lovers, people-lovers and Earth-lovers. We’re obsessed with bringing only the best, healthiest and most-fun dog products to the world. And we do it in a sustainable, socially-responsible way. 

WHIMZEES has limited natural, functional ingredients and no artificial ingredients, colors, flavors, preservatives, gluten or meat. The unique shapes ensure proper blood flow through the gums and prevent bad breath and the build-up of tartar. WHIMZEES are produced sustainably. We love a healthy world as much as we love a healthy smile.

We are the Wellness Foundation. Our mission is to ensure that every pet on the planet is born, bred and raised with love. That’s why we promote pet adoption, ethical breeding practices and environments that always put the well-being of every pet first. If you agree, join us at wellnessfoundation.org.

Camelle Kent- Chief Executive Officer

Camelle Kent

In Her Own Words:

Our first born is Rommel – an incredibly caring and loving lab. Rommel is 3 years old and named after the “desert fox”. Despite his large breed size, he thinks he’s a toy breed and still loves to climb onto my lap like he did as a puppy. Rommel is big brother to Farida and Malak, our twin girls. I am from New Zealand where, growing up, I always had cats. There was Ashley, a grey Persian, and rescues Mischief and Transit.

Working at WellPet gives me a chance to be part of a team that’s on the cutting edge of product innovation in natural pet food. Each day brings the opportunity to not only meet, but exceed, the expectations of discerning pet parents. Spreading the word about the benefits of our products is something I’m very passionate about, especially after seeing the positive effect our food has had on my own dog.
