It's part of a movement to keep pets with their families, and out of overloaded animal shelters -- a mission that has now been lent a helping hand by Best Friends Animal Society's new program, First Home, Forever Home .
"There are so many things that pet owners have to consider, like spay/neuter, boarding, and other types of vet care, but we are seeing that food is the primary concern," said Ellen Gillmore, Best Friends campaign coordinator, in the article. "There is such an immediate need for it that it jumps to the top of our list."
Pet owners want a lot from their pet food brands. They want primary proteins that suit what they believe is best for their animal. They want grains or they don't. They want something customized, but it has to be easy to understand.
Constraints and crises, like those experienced in 2020, help drive innovation and sustainability offers context.
