The reason we're so invested in the quality of our food is because we love pets as much as you do. You’ll find pets in our homes, and even sitting by our feet as we work in our offices. Our passion for pets goes beyond pushing pet nutrition forward, and into forging partnerships in the pet welfare world and raising awareness of what pets truly need. After all, we've seen firsthand how powerful the bond with a pet can be, and the many unique ways that pets can strengthen our families and bring our communities closer. Because we want dedicated and passionate employees on our team, we make sure that Purina is a great place to work. You can tell from the moment you walk in the door that our world revolves around pets, whether you're seeing the art on the walls or the many cats and dogs that employees bring to work every day. Recently, Glassdoor.com ranked Purina No. 3 on their 2015 Best Places to Work – an Employees’ Choice Award list. For eight consecutive years, we've been recognized by the St. Louis Business Journal as the "Best Place to Work" and for the past three years, Purina has been recognized as the best place to work in St. Louis by the St. Louis Post Dispatch. We're proud of the fact that we help make our employees happy.
