Our Philosophy

WellPet is home to the family of premium pet food brands including Wellness®, Old Mother Hubbard®, Eagle Pack®, Holistic Select® and Sojo's®. We have a long history of delivering on the promise of making the healthiest natural products for pets.

Our over 100 years of combined experience in making natural pet food allows us to deliver an unwavering commitment to nutritional innovation and product quality. Our values are based on a small company, family business legacy we've built making the finest quality foods – guided by the promise that “Your pet's wellbeing is at the heart of all we do, that's why we do whatever it takes to make the healthiest natural products for the pets that depend on us.”

Through careful oversight and an unwavering devotion to quality, we are proud to produce natural pet food that is safe, wholesome and beneficial to pets’ health and wellbeing, all made without fillers, preservatives or artificial ingredients. We consider the environment in which our diets are being produced as critical, which is why we have expanded production at our own Mishawaka, Indiana facility. With this expansion, we will bring the vast majority of our production into our own facility to directly control the stringent manufacturing standards and rigorous testing procedures that ensure the quality of our food.

WellPet’s newest innovation of “freeze-dried” and “dehydrated” products feature a short list of entirely natural, high-quality meat, veggies and fruits- all blended with meticulous care under our own roof in Kasota and Kennedy, Minnesota. This space includes a bakery as well as a freeze-drying facility. We’re dedicated to transforming the lives of pets by making nutrition natural, healthy and above all, safe.”
HABRI Institute
As Steering Committee members of non-profit research and education organization, The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), WellPet provides support for research showing the benefit of companion animals for veterans with post-traumatic stress; for children with autism; and for children battling cancer. HABRI’s research has also shown that the human-animal bond is good for pets, encouraging pet parents to provide higher-quality nutrition and great veterinary care for their furry family members.

HABRI continues to advance scientific research so that both pets and people will enjoy better health and wellness. WellPet is proud to support this important work! To learn more about the mutually-beneficial connection between pets and people, please visit www.habri.org.
