The RAWZ Fund has donated more than $3.2 million to its partners to-date since 2015.




(PRESS RELEASE) YORK, ME — RAWZ Natural Pet Food, a company dedicated to improving the lives of pets through minimally processed, nutritionally exceptional recipes, has reaffirmed its commitment to giving back by donating a staggering half a million dollars from its 2023 profits (after taxes and reserves) to several deserving animal shelters and organizations throughout the United States.

The $500,000 donation will be allocated across the following impactful initiatives:

  1. Service Dog Providers: RAWZ understands the vital role that service dogs play in the lives of individuals with disabilities. To support this cause, a portion of the donation will go toward training and providing service dogs to those in need, including Guide Dogs for the Blind, Joys of Living Assistance Dogs, Warrior Canine Connection, Patriot Paws, Neads, and National Service Dogs (NSD).
  2. Dog & Cat Rescues: Recognizing the major impact that animal shelters make in rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming pets, RAWZ has made it a priority to contribute to its efforts. Organizations supported include Darbster Foundation, Best Friends Animal Society, Madison Cat Project and Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends.
  3. Spinal Cord Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury: RAWZ continues to focus on the recovery of individuals and families who are impacted by injury and/or disability. A portion of the donation will be directed toward organizations committed to enhancing the quality of life for individuals affected. Organizations supported include Krempels Brain Injury Center, Northeast Passage (NEP) and Spaulding Rehab Hospital Supporting Surroundings Fund.

The company also acknowledges the importance of providing nutritious food to pets in need. In addition to making monetary donations, the brand is donating over 4,300 lbs of high-quality food, totaling over $40,000, to three Houston-based organizations: Houston Humane Society, K9 Angels Rescue and Houston Pets Alive.

“We’re grateful to have the ability to make these significant donations, which reflects our company’s unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of animals and humans alike,” said Janet Scott, owner of RAWZ Natural Pet Food. “By supporting initiatives that provide service dogs, physical rehabilitation and emotional support, in addition to donating food to shelters, we hope to contribute to the bettering of our communities and beyond.”
