Our Charity Partners

We are proud to support leading charities who share our values, from pet welfare organisations to those promoting pets as practical and therapeutic companions for humans.

At Purina, our passion for pets, as well as our commitment to helping loving pet owners give their pets everything they need to stay healthy and happy, goes far beyond our products.

We also see it as our responsibility to nurture and support deserving causes, to promote the highest standards of pet care, to prevent cruelty and to share our understanding and experience with others.

We are proud to support, in a variety of ways, leading charities who share our values, from pet welfare organisations to those promoting pets as practical and therapeutic companions for humans. Our philosophy is to work together with key charity partners to create programs that bring real, tangible benefits to pets and the people who love them.

Canine Partners

Canine Partners is an assistance dog charity that trains dogs to support and help people with physical disabilities enjoy greater independence and a better quality of life. Each canine partner is carefully matched to the applicants’ needs and lifestyle, no matter how challenging. Their bond is truly unconditional and unique, bringing many mental health benefits. The dogs are trained to help with everyday tasks such as opening and closing doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches, and fetching help in an emergency – often providing a lifeline.

Purina has taken great pride in supporting Canine Partners for over 20 years which includes:

  • An annual donation to help the charity fund the training and feeding of the dogs
