The Honest Kitchen Receives HSUS Honor, Launches New Book, Treat Line
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) honored The Honest Kitchen, headquartered in San Diego, with a plaque in this month because of the brand’s policy, established in its 2002 opening, to never sell its products in stores that sell puppies and its support of pet retailers who host pet adoptions and work with local rescue groups.
“We were incredibly honored and very humbled this week, to receive a plaque from HSUS, in recognition of our policy of never allowing our products to be sold in stores that sell puppies, and for being a part of the ‘humane economy,’” said Lucy Postins, founder and CEO of The Honest Kitchen, in her blog post.
The Honest Kitchen news also plans to launch two treat lines in October. Nice Mussels are human-grade blue and green freeze-dried mussels for dogs available in 2-ounce pouches. The all-natural mussels are safe for everyday feeding and made with only green and blue mussels sustainably farmed in New Zealand, the manufacturer stated.
The company’s 100 percent human-grade Joyful Jerky Filets and Bites contains real, whole food ingredients and no fillers, by-products, glycerin, sugars or mixed tocopherols, the manufacturer stated. Available in four varieties, the Beef Filets and Beef Bites come in 3.25-ounce pouches and the Chicken Filets and Chicken Bites come in 4-ounce pouches.
Also in October, Postins will release her book, "Dog Obsessed." Written for the animal lover and bookworm, Postins said her book shares her secrets to help owners care for their dogs like (and sometimes better than!) family.
Designed as a humorous and helpful resource, the book features more than 45 easy-to-prepare recipes for treats, celebratory party fare and meals that can be shared with dogs, vet-approved health tips to troubleshoot common issues such as food sensitivities and chronic illnesses, as well as a two-week health and fitness plan for pups, according to Postins.
