We're committed to decreasing our environmental footprint—er, pawprint—while increasing our positive impact

West Paw is proud to be family owned and operated since 1996. Since the very beginning, we've incorporated thoughtful design into our eco-friendly, easy-clean toys, beds, leashes, and collars. We care about every step in the process—every hand and paw that goes into product design, testing, manufacturing and enjoyment.

So how do we define "responsibly made?" It means we manufacture everything with care using safe, sustainable materials that are better for the earth, for our workers, and for our pets. And it means our entire team of passionate pet people are valued and cared for as part of the West Paw family—from our American production teams, to our select domestic and international partners who deliver exceptional quality with ethical practices.

For you, it means you can trust that you're purchasing high-quality pet products made with passion and integrity. Everything we make is long-lasting, lovingly handcrafted—and always safe for pets, people, and the planet.
