“We believe that all animals deserve to live a good life, and therefore we have a fundamental responsibility to protect and advocate for the animals in our families and those that are born, raised, and slaughtered for our pet foods and other pet products,” says Earth Animal co-founder Susan Goldstein.
We’re committed to ensuring all of Earth’s animals have a high quality of life, so we have adopted an Animal Welfare Framework outlining our specific commitments to the humane treatment of farm animals in our supply chain. Our framework is built on the 5 domains of animal welfare in order to avoid unnecessary suffering while maintaining physical health and enabling behavioral freedom. We have put an additional emphasis on the emotional experience of the animal as a key indicator of its welfare. The framework provides a structure for us to work with our farmers and supply chain partners by examining their practices and crafting a roadmap to attain new standards of care.Five Domains
