ROCKLIN, CALIF. — Campfire Treats introduced a new line of pork treats for dogs certified by the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) on Jan. 17. The new pork treats are available in two formats: jerky and liver.
The GAP-certified pork treats expand upon Campfire Treats’ existing treat selection, which includes chicken, beef, fish and turkey treats. The new single-ingredient treats are formulated with pork that is free from additives, antibiotics, preservatives and growth hormones. Campfire Treats sources the pork used in the treats from GAP farms, which follow strict animal welfare guidelines.
“We are thrilled to partner with a local sixth-generation family farm to offer a brand new line of animal welfare certified pork treats for dogs,” said Marko Wittich, president and co-founder of Campfire Treats. “This gives our customers an even broader selection of products made from ethically sourced meats.”
GAP is one of the largest and most comprehensive animal welfare food labeling programs within North America. GAP certification is recognized by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)’s Shop With Your Heart ® program, which strives to offer more humane food products to consumers.
“We applaud Campfire Treats’ commitment to farm animal welfare and are thrilled to recognize their welfare-certified products through the ASPCA’s Shop With Your Heart program,” said Nancy Roulston, senior director of corporate policy and animal scientist, ASPCA Farm Animal Welfare. “Despite widespread public concern about the impact of factory farming on animal welfare, the environment and public health, the majority of meat, egg and dairy products come from animals housed in these inhumane facilities, including animal ingredients used in pet foods. Campfire Treats’ welfare-verified products give pet owners an alternative that is aligned with their compassion for animals.”
Campfire Treats plans to expand the new GAP-certified pork treat line with the addition of new treat formats and chews later this year.
