MINNEAPOLIS — Finley’s Barkery, an all-natural dog treat company, on Sept. 9 announced a distribution partnership with Target to expand across the United States.

Finley’s dog treats will now be available through Target’s e-commerce platform for delivery in nearly every region of the country, the brand reported.

“We are thrilled that our partnership with Target.com offers our products to a wider consumer base online,” said Kyle Gallus, chief executive officer and co-founder of Finley’s Barkery. “Our expanded reach allows us to allocate more resources committed to supporting inclusive initiatives for people with disabilities throughout the United States.”

All of the brand’s dog treats, including its oven-baked and soft chew options, are limited-ingredient, all-natural and appropriate for dogs of all ages.

The company was founded in 2016 by two former special education teachers. Fifty percent of all net profits go toward providing skills training, paid work experiences and tools for independence for people with disabilities in the United States.

The brand also has an ambassador program, through which it supports employment opportunities, health and wellness, transportation, community advocacy and education for people with disabilities. Since its founding, Finley’s has donated more than $70,000 and created more than 7,000 hours of paid work opportunities for this community.

The dog treat company also entered a distribution partnership with Chewy in June. Finley’s treats are also distributed to brick-and-mortar pet stores and premium grocery chains across the United States, as well as through Finley's website.
