OAK CREEK, WIS. — World champion soccer player Alex Morgan has backed Stella & Chewy’s, a Wisconsin pet food manufacturer, as its latest brand ambassador. Morgan will help promote the company’s products and campaigns, including its awareness and adoption campaigns through its Journey Home Fund program.

Stella & Chewy’s and Morgan are kicking off their new partnership with a pet food giveaway sweepstakes, in which it will provide a year’s worth of Stella’s Essentials dog food to select dog owners. The contest began yesterday, Sept. 28, and ends on Nov. 22.

Morgan feeds her two dogs, Kona and Blue, Stella & Chewy’s Essentials kibble.

"I've tried a lot of different food options for Kona and Blue in the past without success, but with Stella & Chewy's Essentials kibble I've found a keeper. It fits their dietary needs and is a great option for pet parents looking for a premium diet for their fur babies," Morgan said. "This partnership feels right because of my love for animals and Stella & Chewy's commitment to supporting pet adoption. Both Kona and Blue were rescued from animal shelters, and so many more animals need and deserve loving homes. I hope together we can help make this happen."

Morgan’s partnership with the pet food and treat brand is a year-long collaboration with several planned initiatives coming in 2021.

"Stella and Chewy's is thrilled to partner with Alex Morgan," said Marie Moody, founder of Stella & Chewy's. "As an accomplished professional soccer player, Alex knows that best-in-class nutrition and peak performance go hand in hand. We're excited to offer pet parents a chance to win a free year's supply of the same kibble Alex feeds her dogs through our sweepstakes."
