It’s official! As of today, Petfinder has become a part of Nestlé Purina PetCare. The full Petfinder staff, all 19 of us, had the pleasure of visiting the Nestlé Purina PetCare Headquarters in St. Louis, MO.
Upon arrival, it was clear we were at the right place. Similing Purina employees with their canine “coworkers” were there to greet us at the door. Welcome banners with the Petfinder logo were hung high and proud and we found a lucky surprise waiting for us in the lobby. As part of an exisiting Purina event and initiative, cat behaviorist and TV star Jackson Galaxy was signing copies of his new book and a local Petfinder member was on-site with adoptable cats.
Purina employees are able to bring their dogs to work with them and there is even an on-site company dog park. We had the pleasure of meeting many employee dogs on our campus tour, including several who were former Petfinder dogs!
While you won’t see any big changes to Petfinder in the near future, we are working on exciting opportunities that we can’t wait to share with you!
