Zuke’s Partners with Nestlé Purina PetCare

Acquisition helps bring Zuke’s healthy, natural treats to dogs and cats everywhere.

Durango, Colorado – Zuke’s Performance Pet Nutrition, the premiere source for healthy, natural treats for dogs and cats is excited to become part of Nestlé Purina PetCare.

Commitment to Quality
A hike outside of Durango, Colorado in 1995 by a guy named Patrick and his dog Zuke was the inspiration that led to the creation of Zuke’s and the commitment to creating the highest quality, natural pet treats for dogs and cats everywhere. Zuke’s is pleased to announce that their new partnership with Nestlé Purina PetCare will only strengthen and grow that commitment. Zuke’s, and its employees, will continue to be operated as an independent company based in beautiful Durango. Zuke’s will continue creating and producing outdoors-inspired, safe, and healthy dog and cat treats in the same facilities, in the same way, right here in the USA.

“I’m personally so pleased that Zuke’s is now a part of the Nestlé Purina family. Their understanding of Zuke’s core mission of fostering an active and healthy lifestyle for pets and pet parents alike, their commitment to keeping Zuke’s and its employees in Durango as an independent operation, and their ability to help grow the Zuke’s brand in the pet specialty marketplace were important factors in partnering with Nestlé Purina,” said Founder and Head Bone Maker, Patrick Meiering. John Hart, President of Zuke’s, added, “I joined the Zuke’s team in 2010 with the goal of growing the Zuke’s brand while staying true to its authentic roots and history. We achieved that goal and are excited to continue and accelerate that growth in pet specialty with our new partnership.”

About Zuke’s
At the Zuke’s office you’ll see dogs snoozing under workstations and bounding in our backyard creek. It’s their devotion to us that drives what we do. To honor that, Zuke’s treats are made – and will continue to be made – in the USA using only high-quality, natural ingredients.
