Life at West Paw


Where “work like a dog”
doesn’t mean what it used to.


We’ve seen how dogs work when they’re born to do a job: With pride, joy, and a deep sense of satisfaction — not to mention their ability to completely erase the line between work and play. That’s the spirit we’ve channeled for the team at West Paw, and we’re proud to have been named the “Best Place to Work in Montana.”



Our Vision:

We envision a world where business success is friendly to people and the planet.



Our values reflect the way we act with ourselves, our people and our customers:

1. Act with Integrity
2. Be Accountable
3. Be Tenacious
4. Be Friendly
5. Be Healthy
6. Continuous Improvement
7. Create Value

Our success stems from our values, our collaboration, and our willingness to learn.

Our team is united in our quest for a cleaner planet, healthier communities, and safe, happy pets. Everyone from production, product development, sales, marketing and beyond rallies around our mission with a shared sense of purpose and pride.

Our company is invested in the well-being and success of its staff, ensuring they feel encouraged and challenged as employees and as people.

Our culture is built on relationships — with each other, our customers, our pets, our community, and our planet.
