OUR VISION

We believe that pets make the world better for people, so we make it our vision to make “A Better World for Pets™.” We put their needs first and encourage pet owners to do the same.

At the core of our vision to make A Better World for Pets™ is making healthy, safe, nutritious and tasty foods that pets love. We deliver a wide range of products and services to meet the nutrition and healthcare needs of different pets, breeds, life stages and health conditions. But we believe that our responsibility extends far beyond the quality of our products. We also strive to promote the overall health and wellbeing of pets through responsible pet ownership and to increase the positive experience of having a pet.

THE BOND BETWEEN PEOPLE & PETS

Throughout history, the relationship between people and pets has been one of the world’s most unique and enduring bonds. People have been sharing their lives with domesticated pets for more than 10,000 years — virtually since the beginning of civilisation. This special relationship benefits both people and pets, and goes beyond mere companionship.

People see their pets as important members of their families. They are friends, work partners, playmates and protectors, providing love, security and joy to their humans. Our pets make us smile, but scientific research shows that owning pets has significant physical and psychosocial benefits. Whether it is increasing our level of physical activity, alleviating depression or improving a child’s sense of self-esteem, interacting with pets helps people enjoy happier and healthier lives and strengthens the communities in which we live.

PROMOTING RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP

At Mars Petcare we define responsible pet ownership as: the responsibility of an owner to take good care of the needs of their cat or dog throughout their life. This includes creating the right conditions for a healthy, happy, well-socialised and well-behaved pet. Responsible ownership enriches families’ lives and society as a whole, while minimising any potential risks pets might pose to the public, other animals or the environment.

Owing a pet is a rewarding experience that brings great joy, as well as health and wellbeing benefits to many households and to society as a whole. In return, we believe pet owners must be prepared for the life-long commitments and responsibilities that caring for a pet brings.
