Our company values     

High Hopes® natural dog treats and dog foods are made by The High Hopes® for Pets Company, LLC, located in Chicago, Illinois. We’re a small company of pet lovers who care about doing the right thing and doing good for the community.

Not only do we want to make the healthiest and tastiest dog treats and foods, but we also believe businesses should give back to the community they serve. That’s why we donate 3.5% from every sale (up to 15% of the company’s profits) of every product every day, to The High Hopes® for Pets Foundation — a separate, not-for-profit foundation whose mission is to help local shelter and rescue groups care for, and find homes for homeless pets everywhere. With your help, it can add up to millions of dollars each year.

We thank you and your dog for your support.     

About our company founder

Creating a company that would help erase the issue of animal homelessness is an idea originated by Paula Etchison. A life-long animal lover, and parent to both dogs and cats, Paula’s passionate about pets and the idea of businesses giving back to the communities they serve. Paula believes businesses should be fun, learning-oriented places to work where people help one another to do well and do the right thing.

She carried around the idea of Birthday and Celebration cupcakes for dogs in her head for nearly 10 years, and after twenty years of working for other companies, she thought it was time to start her own. Friends, who know her well, will attest that she sets high standards for herself and the people around her, and it’s her hope that you can see the same caring and passion in High Hopes®’ products.

About our chop-licking good dog treats and food    

High Hopes® is all about making dog treats and foods as nutritious as they are delicious. Our range of 100% natural dog cupcake treat kits let you whip up some delicious cupcakes for your dog in minutes! We’ve even got birthday cupcake kits to put some sparkle in your dog’s day, along with a list of doggie party tips so he can bring some of his friends along.

If you’re looking for healthy training rewards or ‘share the love’ treats, we’ve got a host of grain-free and wheat free treats that will make your dog’s tail wag with joy! Our tasty Mity Meaty Bites are made with real meat and will keep your dog drooling for more. And our Peanut Butter treats (almost every dog’s favorite) are packed with nothing but the best ingredients – full of goodness, and tasty too!

Our dog food has nothing but the best ingredients! We use real meat first, including premium proteins like Salmon, Lamb and organ meat, and 65-70% of our proteins are derived from animal sources. Combine that with a variety of fruits and vegetables, legumes, and rich and balanced proportions of Omega-3 & 6, DHA, EPA, Glucosamine and phyto-nutrients, and you’ve got a diet that your dog will not only love, but it’s all made right here in the USA too!

All of our treats and foods have been developed by a Pet Nutritionist who has a PhD in Animal Nutrition to ensure they are as nutritious as they are delicious. So happy tails to you and the pets you serve…we all know they are truly the one and only Pack Leaders of the house.
