A Better World for Pets

COMMUNITY OUTREACH TO CONNECT PEOPLE AND PETS

As the most popular companion animals, cats and dogs have brought endless joy to humans. Pet owners, in turn, try their best to provide nutrition food for their beloved pets. However, due to inadequate knowledge of pet nutrition, pet owners may unwittingly feed their cats and dogs in an unhealthy way which tends to cause health problems among cats and dogs. Hence, it is crucial to raise awareness of nutrition knowledge among specialists and pet owners.

Mars spends a lot of time thinking about pets around the world. Mars Associates always want to give back to the animals who give us so much — that’s why we spend thousands of hours every year participating in initiatives and best practices that make a real and lasting difference in the lives of millions of people and their pets.

Through our programs, we are committed to:

  • Helping pets find loving homes by supporting national animal welfare initiatives, youth education and local shelters.

  • Providing pet food for pets in need.

  • Establishing new and renovating existing pet-friendly places to encourage the bond between humans and pets.
