NutriSource Pet Foods is centered around a core belief in family and community.

“What good are we if we aren’t trying to make a difference?” That’s the philosophy of KLN Family Brands President, Charlie Nelson and speaks to the values held by the company.

NutriSource’s partnerships range from small non-profit centers like rescues and shelters, independent pet specialty retailers, local agricultural businesses and national organizations like the Pinky Swear Foundation.

The Pinky Swear Foundation offers direct financial support to families battling pediatric cancer so they can keep their focus on the health and recovery of loved ones. When you purchase NutriSource brands you are supporting Pinky Swear as a share of the proceeds are used to support the Pinky Swear Foundation. These efforts impact families and communities across the country.

NutriSource’s continued support of independent pet retailers provides communities with animal expertise to ensure the well-being of our furry family members while keeping dollars and employment in the community. When purchases are made at a local level $0.63 of every dollar stays in the local community. Compare that to $0.43 of every dollar when the purchase is done with a mass retailer and NONE when shopping online.

NutriSource’s support of the Shop Local effort is a value practiced by the company. NutriSource enjoys strong relationships with local growers and seeks to source the highest quality ingredients and supplies from our friends and neighbors whenever possible. Not only does this support local economies, it allows Tuffy’s to use ingredients and products that we can verify are responsibly sourced and will support the health and well-being of pets.

The recent hurricanes in Texas and Florida provided another opportunity to reaffirm who we are and what we do. When natural disasters occur and friends and neighbors are in need, NutriSource will join arms in an effort to help those in need whether it be pet food donations or financial support that allows rescue and like operations to care for misplaced pets and families.

We proudly make our products in Perham, Minnesota. We’re grateful that we are able to use our success to offer help that improves local communities while helping people and pets. We are thankful for your support and ask you to continue making a difference with us every day.
