Chews Rescue, Barkworthies’ new shelter program, will kick off in March by:
At the conclusion of the promotional Facebook campaign, one lucky dog (i.e. Facebook campaign entry) will be randomly selected to receive a year’s supply of Barkworthies treats and chews. Additionally, the brand will make a 500-piece product donation to an animal shelter in the winner’s honor.
The Chews Rescue program was developed as a tribute to everyone that assists in animal rescue and the positive impact it makes on individual families and community. “When my wife and I got our dogs, Espy and Sushi, it changed our lives,” said Barkworthies’ CEO and co-founder Avrum Elmakis. “They were the inspiration to create Barkworthies and, ultimately, shaped the brand’s commitment and standards. We hope the Chews Rescue program gives back in a meaningful and significant way – it’s our way of saying thank you.”
This isn’t the first time Barkworthies has prominently endorsed animal rescue. Last year it redesigned everything, including product packaging and its website, to feature exclusively rescue dogs. The most frequent Barkworthies rescue model is Jackson, a 3-year-old Australian cattle dog, pit bull terrier and border collie mix.
Those interested supporting animal rescue are encouraged to enter the Barkworthies Facebook campaign and the brand will donate US$5 to the cause in their honor.

While dogs and cats continue to reign supreme, the growth of the “other” pet space can’t be denied: 9.9 million homes own a bird, 6.2 million homes have a small pet (usually small mammals) and 5.7 million homes own a reptile.

Pet owners with birds, small mammals and other types of non-dog/cat animals are demanding the best for their feathered, furry or scaly friends.
