Why We Chose Bethlehem

We started Freshpet to change the way pet food was made—and set a much higher standard of quality. After talking to hundreds of companies and people, we realized that no one else could provide what we needed. So we did it ourselves. As we searched the country for the right place to start the fresh pet food movement, we knew exactly what we needed: Great people; proximity to fresh, natural ingredients; and a welcoming spirit for our growing business. We found it all right here. We are proud to be Bethlehem strong and American made. Come join us and make lives better for pets and people around the world.

Partnerships, Volunteerism, Pet Shelters

We’re here to make more than money. Or create jobs. We’re here to make a difference and help a community we care about. That’s why we donate to local pet shelters, including food for pets and financial resources. And you’ll see us involved in other types of community outreach programs, ones designed to help Pets, People, and our Planet.

Pennsylvania SPCA

We collaborate with the Pennsylvania SPCA (Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), a national leader in animal rescue and protection. At locations in Philadelphia and throughout the state, Freshpet does its part by providing food, resources, and helping to ensure that pets find their forever homes.

4 Paws for Ability

Our team loves helping 4 Paws for Ability, a nonprofit headquartered in Dayton, Ohio. This wonderful organization places quality service dogs with children who have disabilities, as well as veterans returning from conflict.
