More Than Just a Meal

Stella & Chewy’s is more than just a meal when it comes to shelter pets. Proper nutrition is key in keeping all pets happy, healthy, and thriving, but even more so when it comes to shelter pets. The stress of a new shelter environment can cause loss of appetite, stomach upset, and make a pet more susceptible to illness. Every time you purchase a Stella & Chewy’s product, we donate best-in-class nutrition to shelter dogs and cats to help them heal, thrive, and be ready for their forever family.

Inspiring Adult & Senior Adoption Stories

Meet Mama Nutmeg

“Seeing Nutmeg overcome her neglectful past and severe anxiety attacks helped me tackle my own anxiety and depression. We needed each other. There’s just no way we couldn’t save each other.”

- April, Long Way Home Adoptables

Meet Scott

“Just because an animal is older, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything is wrong with them.”

Kate, Perfect Paws Animal Rescue

Meet Sadie

An adult rescue tripawd with limited vision. She’s been through a lot in her life. So has Tara, her dog mom. Together they’ve thrived, proving there always more to be written in your own story.

Meet Alexis

Alexis believes life is too short not to have a loving pet. Alexis’ own dog Reggie, an adult rescue, inspires her to live each day to its fullest.

Meet Jennifer

When you have a friend who is there for you through everything, that’s what a dog can mean and so much more. Watch our HR Manager Jennifer’s story of adopting several adult dogs over the years.
