Supporting Communities

At Purina, we're passionate about pets and committed to serving the needs of the communities where we live and work. Our giving takes on many forms, from philanthropy to volunteerism to sharing expertise with non-profits.

Because we believe that people and pets are better together, our primary focus is centered around the well-being of pets and the people who love them. We work with pet shelters across the U.S. in addition to supporting organizations that benefit people and pets in our Headquarters city of St. Louis and communities where we operate our manufacturing facilities.

Pet Food for Federal Employees Affected by Government Shutdown

The ongoing government shutdown has affected federal employees and their families across the nation. The financial hardship so many are experiencing has far-reaching ramifications, especially for pet owners.

Purina wants to help ensure the four-legged family members of federal employees remain with their families and stay fed and healthy during this difficult time.
