Crafted with Purpose

“The team behind ACANA® pet food has a long history of supporting rescue organizations and I am excited we have developed a first-of-its-kind recipe in the U.S. specially formulated for adopted dogs. Rescue dogs often experience stress and digestive upset while in shelters, and our goal was to make their transition from shelter to forever home seamless. We hope ACANA Rescue Care for Adopted Dogs provides a sense of safety and comfort so families can focus on creating memories with the newest member of their family.”
