Portland Pet Food Company Giveaway

Comments 52 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Portland Pet Food Company (“PPFC”) is expanding their food and treats to the Canadian market this summer. Founder Katie McCarron was born in BC, and started up her business when her older dog lost her appetite. McCarron is excited to offer the food and treats on her home “turf” and has partnered with BC-based non-profit Thank Dog I Am Out, donating a percentage of upcoming Canadian sales to the organization as they help local dogs misplaced due to wildfires.

Portland Pet Food Company

In 2014, Rosie, Katie’s 14-year-old Poodle, lost her appetite and her health declined. Determined to find something healthy that Rosie would love, Katie began cooking meals for her at home. She used locally-sourced, natural ingredients, and Rosie loved it. She regained her appetite and stayed strong for two and a half more years, living to 16 ½ years old. Just like that, Portland Pet Food Company was born.

Today, PPFC helps dogs thrive with the same nutritious meals and treats that were formulated in McCarron’s kitchen years ago, with the same focus on fresh, local ingredients and sustainability.

Portland Pet Food is fresh, human-grade, never-frozen and made with ingredients sourced from farms across North America. Although it is especially popular with older dogs, those of all ages love the mixers, toppers and treats. The farm-to-bowl food options come in shelf-stable pouches that are easy to serve and take along with you wherever you and your pup may go.

PPFC’s hard-working team of bakers and staff work to ensure dogs around the world can enjoy premium, nutritious meals and treats.

For their launch in Canada, PPFC is donating 5% of net profits from sales of the whole Pet Valu/Tisol family of stores from September through December to Thank DOG I Am Out Rescue Society. This registered non-profit society based in Vancouver is dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of dogs who are at risk of being euthanized, surrendered, abused, or neglected.

    My dog Ringo is a TDIAO rescue from a high kill shelter
    in CA. He is now a certified pet therapy dog volunteering at hospitals, senior homes, colleges, women’s shelter and schools. What a successful
    adoption story and he is not only my best friend, but gives me new purpose in life to share him with the world!
