Job Description About Freshpet Our mission at Freshpet:------Doing what's best for pets. 12 years ago, a bunch of us were talking about how much we love our pets - we let them sleep in our beds, we spend whatever it takes when they get sick, we throw them birthday parties. They're part of our families. We work hard to give our pets the very best, just like our children - to keep them happy, healthy and safe. And then we turned to what we were feeding them. Most of us were feeding our pets dry, processed corn byproducts and dehydrated meat from a bag. And we all know dogs and cats are carnivores. We decided, in that conversation, to do something about it. To stop feeling frustrated by the constraints of big companies - to start fresh. We hope you'll try offering it to your pets. We think it will make them happy and healthy, and that you'll feel good feeding them delicious, cooked meals.
