Pets are our

passion.

PURINA®

They’re the ones inspiring us to be leaders in science and nutrition.

We invest in investigation to help pets have a longer and healthier life. That’s the reason why the quality of our ingredients and pet formulas is the best, and the reason why we’re a company 100% dedicated to pet care.

At PURINA® we share your passion, and we will never stop looking for new ways to improve your pet’s life.



Story

Our history. Day by day, we improve to help your pet enjoy a healthier life. Learn more about our history!


FOR OVER 80 YEARS, WE'VE BEEN GUIDED BY THE BELIEF THAT PETS AND PEOPLE ARE BETTER TOGETHER.

The reason we're so invested in the quality of our food is because we love pets as much as you do. You’ll find pets in our homes, and even sitting by our feet as we work in our offices. Our passion for pets goes beyond pushing pet nutrition forward, and into forging partnerships in the pet welfare world and raising awareness of what pets truly need. After all, we've seen firsthand how powerful the bond with a pet can be, and the many unique ways that pets can strengthen our families and bring our communities closer. Because we want dedicated and passionate employees on our team, we make sure that Purina is a great place to work. You can tell from the moment you walk in the door that our world revolves around pets, whether you're seeing the art on the walls or the many cats and dogs that employees bring to work every day. For six consecutive years, we've been recognized by the St. Louis Business Journal as the "Best Place to Work." In 2012, Purina was recognized as the best place to work in St. Louis by the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and in 2011, Glassdoor.com named us the company with the best work-life balance. We're proud of the fact that we help make our employees happy. Our quest to drive pet nutrition forward and conduct industry-leading research on the wellbeing of pets pushes our company to do more year after year. We work hard for your pets every day, and we love doing it.

NESTLÉ PURINA® PETCARE COMPANY

A PLACE FOR DISCOVERY

From studying the causes of pet obesity to discovering how to help extend a pet's healthy years, more than 400 scientists - including nutritionists, veterinarians, behaviorists, engineers and food scientists are at work every day at Nestle Purina and its Pet Care Center.

A COMFORTABLE HOME FOR PETS

You may be wondering what the resident pets are like in our Pet Care Center, and what goes on in a day in their life. Our pets participate in feeding studies, including palatability and digestibility, to help ensure our foods are as nutritious as they are great-tasting. All of our pets have names, enjoy comfortable living quarters and get plenty of play and love from our staff. We do not participate in any invasive research, and we conduct only those procedures that are consistent with excellence in veterinary care. We love pets, and everything we do is designed to give them a happy and fulfilling life.
