At WellPet, I truly feel valued as an employee and that further motivates me to take ownership/pride in my job.

Any pets in your life?

I have one dog, a rat terrier. Oreo is 10 years young and is a member of our family. I adopted Oreo from a high-kill shelter in Louisiana over 6 years ago. He is very loving and attentive. He truly just loves being around us (we feel the same way).

Cooking, going to baseball/basketball games/practices, taking Oreo for walks.

Favorite WellPet product is:

Old Mother Hubbard mini biscuits in assorted flavors.

What's great about working at WellPet:

I have fed my pets Wellness for a long time, and now I get to talk about it every day and help people understand why quality nutrition is so important to their pet's life. WellPet is a great company that has quality products and work environment. Our mission is strong and there is always a challenge to meet. It's a lot of fun, and I feel like I make a difference every day.

Any pets in your life?

I have 1 dog and 2 cats. My dog Trudy Pie is 12 years old; she is a hound mix. My cats Beiju and Sheeba are 21 and 15 years old. I've adopted all of my animals from the local shelter where I have done volunteer work. All of the animals we've adopted from the shelter over the years have been loving and wonderful. We sometimes foster puppies that need time or need to get healthy before going up for adoption. We've had as many as 5 dogs at the same time!

At home, I spend my time:

Enjoying the outdoors of Northern California. The regional parks, trails and walking paths are great. I've also been teaching myself the acoustic guitar.

What's great about working at WellPet:

Working for WellPet over the past 3 years has brought a lot of fun and happiness to my life. Not only am I representing pet foods that I believe in, I have enjoyed the people that I work with as well. It feels really good to help and provide advice to pet parents that may have issues or concerns about their furry friend, so I feel most successful when I can help make a difference in that pet's life.

Any pets in your life?

I have two wonderful dogs in my life. Wilson is a 7 year old Shitzu/Poodle and Jackson is a 2 year old Chow/Retriever. They are very spoiled and stay very active. They love going to the dog park, swimming, running, eating out and most of all just being with us. I never imagined myself surrounded by so many wagging tails, but I wouldn’t change it for anything!

 

At home, I spend my time:

At home I spend my time with my family, working out, and focusing on dog rescue. I am very active in the rescue community and working for WellPet has encouraged me to pursue my passion. I am on the Board of a Non-Profit Rescue called Coconut Grove Dog Rescue located in Coconut Grove, FL, and our goal is to keep abandoned dogs out of the county shelter. We have been very successful in a short period of time, so I know our hard work is making a difference. 

Favorite WellPet product is:

There are so many great products that my dogs love. I feed my dogs both Holistic Select and Wellness. They never get bored at meal time because there are great varieties of products to choose from. Mention the word "treat" in my house and I can get them to do anything! From WellBites and WellBars to Old Mother Hubbard there is something for each dog to love!

What's great about working at WellPet?

It’s feeling like we are making a positive difference in the pet’s lives that we create our products for. It’s working on brands I both believe in and feel good about putting into the marketplace, and it’s definitely the people that I’ve had the opportunity to work with. WellPet has a lot of talented and passionate people that have created a very warm and family-like atmosphere to work in.

Any Pets in Your Life?

Zoey is a miniature Schnoodle and became an instant member of the family the moment I saw her. She is very sweet and has a calm temperament. She is very shy when she first meets someone new, but is quick to warm up, especially when a snack is involved! She loves being outdoors and often will pick a nice sunny spot and just stretch out in the sun. 

At home, what’s your favorite way to spend free time?

Like Zoey, I really enjoy the outdoors, so during free time I enjoy taking Zoey for walks. I also enjoy boating, reading and photography.

Favorite WellPet product

At mealtime Zoey loves the Wellness CORE Original Formula. She is a very enthusiastic eater and she makes sure no kibble is left behind both in or out of the bowl!  For snacks Zoey fancies variety, but some of her favorites are Wellness Crunchy Peanuts & Honey WellBars and in the Old Mother Hubbard line Chick’N’Apples, PB Hearts and the Soft & Chewy Bitz Chicken Flavor.

Any pets in your life?

Our family adopted Harley in October 2012 from The Great Dog Rescue in Andover, MA. He was a stray in Tennessee found wandering the streets with his two puppy sons. Harley is a Beagle mix, and we think he is 2 ½ - 3 years old. He is so sweet and gentle; we couldn’t imagine our lives without him.

At home, I spend my time:

I always spend time with my family and Harley. My husband Sal and I have been married 19 years and I have two children, Leo who is 14 and Giovanna who is 13. I am definitely a sports mom driving to baseball games and cheering competitions. I love all animals, the Red Sox, and cooking big Italian Sunday dinners.

Favorite WellPet product is:

Holistic Select Grain Free Anchovy for dogs because of its concentration on digestive health. Harley dives right in at meal time!

What's great about working at WellPet:

That there is a common passion for the company, for our products, and most of all, for animals.  Having come from a large-company atmosphere, it's nice to get to know everyone across all departments and work together in a team environment.

Any pets in your life?

I have 2 dogs: Willie who is a 6-year old Puggle, and Reggie who is a 6-year old Yellow Lab. They are only 3-months apart and grew up together so they are very much brothers…one can't go anywhere without the other! Their personalities couldn't be more different, but they are both loving animals. They are a huge part of my family, and I typically refer to them as "my boys" when talking about them. They are spoiled beyond recognition!

At home, I spend my time:

Spending time with my husband/family/friends, cooking, trying new restaurants, going to sporting events, and playing with my boys in the backyard.

Favorite WellPet product is:

Wellness Super5Mix Healthy Weight because both of them have a tendency to pack on the pounds.  Ever since they started eating Wellness, I have noticed they don't shed as much and their coats are soft and shiny.  And best of all, they love eating it!
