WellPet – Why Work For 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.

Wellness is for pets and their parents who believe – as we do – that good nutrition and healthy food are the building blocks of a long, happy life. Created by nutritionists, veterinarians and animal lovers, Wellness recipes provide an ideal balance of nature's finest ingredients, carefully selected and combined to nourish and sustain your pet's well-being. You can trust the quality of all the ingredients in Wellness, from our source to your pet's bowl. All Wellness recipes include lean meats, whole grains, fruits and veggies with no wheat, corn or soy, and no added artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

Wellness® pet food is part of a nutritionally balanced diet that helps support your pet's total well-being. From head to tail, Wellness is nutrition with a purpose.

As we learn about the vital role that digestive health plays in whole–body health, we are seeking more active ways to help ensure that our pets have the wholesome natural building blocks for a healthy digestive system. Holistic Select is the only natural pet food that offers a complete digestive balance system to help your pet absorb and utilize all nutrients.

Holistic Select delivers guaranteed levels of:

  • Digestive enzymes and botanicals to help break down food and aid digestion
  • Prebiotics to stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut
  • Probiotics to increase the absorption of vital nutrients and prevent free radicals from entering the bloodstream
  • Natural fiber to help move waste from the digestive tract through the colon

Our dog and cat recipes feature high–quality, natural meats, fats and whole grains. When combined with regular exercise, an environment free from toxins and undue stress, consistent training and education and regular interaction with people and other animals, Holistic Select can be the first step toward your pet's whole-body health.

Our classic recipe was originally developed as a wholesome snack for fisherman while out at sea. One day, a sailor threw a biscuit to his dog, who happily gobbled it up. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, some 85 years later, the dedicated bakers at Old Mother Hubbard, continue to find new ways to bring healthy, natural pet snacks straight from our cupboard to your faithful friend's dish.

Each home–style recipe is carefully crafted from honest, high–quality ingredients like chicken, cheddar cheese, apples, carrots, sweet potatoes and oatmeal, that allow dog owners to feel good about giving their dogs a reward that is healthy and heartfelt.

At Eagle Pack®, we're proud to support the champion spirit in every dog. For nearly three decades, we've been the trusted food for champions coast–to–coast including police dogs, guide dogs, show dogs and even Alaskan-sled dogs. Our original formula was developed in 1985 with trainers and vets to meet the intense nutritional demands of canine athletes.

Now, we offer that same great performance–proven nutrition to you and your pet, with a complete line of customized foods designed to support your dog's everyday health needs. Our formulas provide the right balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, combined with health–promoting supplements like antioxidants, omega fatty acids and glucosamine.

From sled dogs to show dogs, farm dogs to family dogs, we feed champions every day. You too can count on our American-made foods to naturally fuel your own pet's daily adventures, whether big or small.

Whether you call it “freeze-dried” or “dehydrated” or “shelf-stable raw,” what matters most is that Sojos combines the nutrition and taste of fresh, raw food - with the convenience of kibble.

All Sojo’s recipes are made without fillers, preservatives, or anything artificial. Just a short, sweet list of entirely natural proteins, veggies and fruits - all blended with meticulous care under Sojos’ own roof.

With steadfast dedication to providing fresh and healthy pet food and treats, Sojo’s is located in Minnesota, whipping up wholesome pet food and treats for your four-legged friends - one batch at a time.


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.

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.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tewksbury, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WellPet (Tewksbury, MA) in December 2014.


    Overall, the interview process was quite refreshing compared to many others I've been through. The key to an ideal interview process is strong communication and follow-up no matter what the hiring decision may end up. In my interview process, the recruiter in partnership with the WellPet HR team and hiring manager were all very personable, punctual for all the phone screens and in-person interviews and prompt in all response and follow-up. It was this experience alone that would have sold me on the opportunity, but naturally there was a great deal more driving my decision to pursue and join WellPet when they graciously made me an offer.

    My first phone screen was with the HR manager, my second was with the hiring manager and then I was invited up to meet in-person with the management team, including 8 one-on-one interviews with key team members. Everyone took a sincere vested interest in me as a candidate really trying to confirm I was a fit both professionally and culturally. This thoroughness and sincerity really demonstrated their dedication to their special team culture and that personal human touch that I so desperately sought after many years in a large corporate machine. At the end of my day of in-person interviews, they made me an offer which was exciting and rewarding after also having invested so much in the pursuit of this opportunity.
