It is very simple…
We are asking pet food and pet treat manufacturers to provide us their Pledge to Quality and Origin of ingredients.
We have to ask, because…
- FDA Compliance Policies allow pet food ingredients to be sourced from bird and rodent feces contaminated foods or diseased animal tissues;
- In recent years, some foods or ingredients sourced from China have been linked to pet death and illness;
- None of these risks are clearly stated on the pet food or treat label.
So, we are simply asking for their Pledge; their promise to the grade/quality of ingredients and their promise to the country of origin of ingredients that make up pet foods and treats.
On behalf of all pet food consumers, Association for Truth in Pet Food (pet food consumer stakeholder association) is requesting all pet food/treat manufacturers to provide their Pledge of Quality and Origin.
Each Pledge provides company name, address and website. All ingredients in your pet foods/treats will be listed on the Pledge. This includes all meats, organ meats, by-products, by-product meals, meat meals, fish, fish meals, oils, fats, grains, vegetables, fruits, flavorings, supplements, vitamins and minerals. The quality information and origin information in provided in respective columns. And the stated information will be signed by a CEO or President of the company as their Pledge.
All Pledges will become public information and maintained as a service to pet food consumers on this website (AssociationforTruthinPetFood.com).
Please ask your pet food manufacturer to Pledge.
Ask them to email Susan Thixton, Susan (at) AssociationforTruthinPetFood.com for a blank Pledge form.

If the pet food company you support is not listed above…
It’s probably Not because they haven’t been asked to participate. Hundreds of emails to pet food manufacturers asking them to Pledge have been sent. As well, many pet food consumers have asked many manufacturers. But…we must continue to ask them to Pledge. Pet food consumers deserve transparency.
