Project Hive Pet Company is excited to announce the official launch of its made in America dog toy and treat company in 100 PetSmart stores nationwide earlier this year and are growing to 400 stores in November. The pet company is dedicated to saving the bees by establishing healthy wildflower habitat through its partnership with 1% for the Planet and support of the Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund. Project Hive Pet Company is a public benefit company and a member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition dedicated to using business as a force for good.
Made in the USA, Project Hive Pet Company offers a line of interactive dog toys and treats that work together to create a fun, engaging experience for large and small dogs. The treats are Non-GMO Project Verified, vegetarian, made with organic honey and ground peanuts, have no artificial flavors or colors and do not contain corn, wheat or soy. The dog toys are BPA-free, float in the water, are dishwasher-safe, non-toxic and recyclable. Their bright yellow and bee-inspired design gently reminds pet parents to think about the importance of saving the bees.
Jim Schifman, with his wife Melissa Rappaport Schifman, founded Project Hive Pet Company as a way to help save our home planet. They are committed to living environmentally sustainable lives and to saving one of our planet’s most critical species: bees. Project Hive Pet Company helps improve the quality of life for humans, pets and bees. The company is currently working toward Climate Neutral and B Corp certifications.
“Here at Project Hive Pet Company, we like to say, let’s make our planet thrive–one happy dog and countless bees at a time,” said co-founder Jim Schifman.
Currently, bees pollinate about a third of the food supply and increase crop value by more than $15 billion. Each purchase of Project Hive Pet Company’s products directly establishes healthy wildflower habitat for the declining bee population. Project Hive Pet Company’s goal is to establish more than 1,000 acres of healthy wildflower habitat within five years.

Giving back is a significant part of the pet food industry, and companies focused on philanthropy want to make connections, not just donations.
