Steve’s Real Food recognizes the devotion that responsible breeders have to bring healthy and behaviorally-stable dogs and cats into the world. We support the commitment you have to these animals and want to help make it possible to provide new litters and their parents with quality nutrition that contributes to their health and vitality. 

As a raw pet food company, our mission is to supply healthy, whole food to all dogs, no matter their background. Our program is to help puppies from breeders be weaned directly onto a raw food diet to help that pet have a healthy, long life. To do that, we do work with some select breeders that go through our vetting process. We only work with breeders whose intention is to improve the health and longevity of their chosen breed. We love supporting rescues and avidly donate and work with rescues when possible.

What makes a responsible breeder?

Here are some signs of a responsible breeder:

  • You are a member of a breed club
  • Your breeding pets are regularly health tested
  • You provide all pets in your care with quality food, clean water, proper shelter, exercise opportunities, socialization, and veterinary care
  • You carefully evaluate the new puppy/kitten owners before sending them to the forever homes
