Founded by a member of Mensa, the high IQ society, Pets or Food is dedicated to bringing together people and animals.
In 1987, Sidney Zwibel was working as an animal disposal technician at a Humane Society in Lincoln Nebraska. He felt that all the animals he was responsible for euthanising were being wasted, and the act itself was irresponsible and immoral in the light of all the people going hungry across America. In 1988, Sidney and a group of like minded entrepreneurs founded Pets or Food™ to take in homeless animals and rehabilitate them to fulfill their destinies as either loving family companions or nutritious, protein rich meat supplements to those going without.
What started out as a county wide effort in 1988 grew to become a nation wide endeavor with satellite processing centers in Boise, Idaho, Gainesville, Florida, Freemont, Texas and Eau ‘Claire, Wisconsin. Today, Pets or Food™ is responsible for providing over a billion calories a day to the needy and places thousands of pets with new owners each week.
Pets or Food™ is the leading supplier of animal products to the nation’s prison systems and was recognized in 1999 by Governor George W. Bush of Texas for helping to lower overall costs for the Texas prison system by almost 15%.
