As of July 15, 2013, Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is proud to officially welcome Petfinder, the world's oldest and largest website for pet adoption, to the Purina family. This acquisition is Nestlé's first investment in an online content property and it will help Purina continue to fulfill its mission of enriching the lives of pets and the people who love them.
With over 100 million pet-loving visitors to Petfinder.com each year, the website remains the leading online database that links prospective adopters with adoptable pets. The site also serves as a recommended resource for pet owners to maintain a lifelong relationship with their pets. So far, this digital and mobile platform has facilitated over 20 million pet adoptions throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Petfinder is part of a dense network of nearly 14,000 animal welfare associations and pet shelters in North America. Given Purina's long-standing commitment to pet welfare, this newly formed partnership will be one fueled by unconditional passion and dedication. Currently, Nestlé Purina partners and supports pet welfare programs, such as Pets For People, Purina One Shelter Program, Purina Pet Adoption Program (Pets for Seniors), Pet Partners, Adopt-a-Pet.com, Rally to Rescue, St. Louis Pet Lover Coalition, International Alliance of Animals and Federacion Canofila. In 2012, Nestlé Purina distributed more than $13 million worth of pet food and litter to help dogs and cats through many of these organizations. Learn more about what we do in the pet welfare world.
