SALISBURY, Md: Spot Farms, the family-owned brand which provides high-quality, premium treats and foods to the pet specialty market, has joined 1% for the Planet, committing to donate 1% of all sales to nonprofit partners that help support farming and agriculture in the United States.

1% for the Planet pairs businesses and individuals with highly vetted environmental nonprofits to create high-impact partnerships that amplify the impact of its members' giving.

Spot Farms partners with farm families across the country to create the very best treats for your dog using natural, human-grade ingredients, including regionally grown, antibiotic-free chicken, turkey and pork. Spot Farms strives to deliver the best nutrition to your dog, which is why the brand uses simple, honest recipes that start with meat as the main ingredient and are free of fillers like corn, wheat or soy.

At Spot Farms, we believe that our pets deserve food that is just as good as the food we make for ourselves, and this commitment drives our choices every step of the way. Our parent company, Perdue Farms, has aggressive sustainability and environmental goals, and this partnership helps us work toward those together. By joining 1% for the Planet, we're also committing to ensuring the future health of both our planet and farming communities, said Ryan Perdue, founder of Spot Farms. Spot Farms treats start with USDA-approved, antibiotic-free meats raised on family farms here in the United States. Our nation's farmers are essential to our ability to provide the best ingredients and nutrition for your pets, and we're pleased that this partnership will not only support the environment, but also the nation's farming industry that helps us provide high-quality treats for your pets.

With its 1% for the Planet partnership, Spot Farms will join the businesses and community of individual members responsible for giving more than $265 million back to environmental nonprofits since 2002. Spot Farms will donate 1% of sales to a yet-to-be determined organization focused on supporting sustainable farming and agriculture in the US.

We are delighted to welcome Spot Farms to the 1% for the Planet family of nearly 4,000 global businesses. As one of the first major pet brands to join the cause, they are truly leading the pack and we hope that others will be inspired to follow, said Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs more support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes.
