WellPet has announced the unveiling of a new ad campaign, "We Create Wellness," that focuses on the emotional relationships between pet owners and their pets, and will feature British Shorthair "spokescat" Wella. The cat will join Wellsy, the Austrian Shepherd who served as the brand's "spokespet" in 2013.
This campaign's message will be communicated through the tagline on both dog and cat print ads, which reads “Naturally, she’ll love you for it,” paired with a close-up shot of either Wellsy or Wella. The theme also echoes through the cat and dog television spots, which highlight the healthy ingredient list the brand is synonymous for, but also remind pet parents that they’re really feeding their pets quality, natural food to promote overall well-being.
The ads (print and TV) officially premiere in May in the US and Canada. The campaign also includes digital media (display, mobile, online video, and SEM/social media), according to WellPet.
While cat trends continue, the pandemic has added to overall slow-growth treatment of the cat food market.
Premiumization and humanization, as well as automation, fueled continued operation growth in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
