Unwanted is not wasted.

We upcycle wood, pulp and paper remnants to create planet-friendly pet products worthy of a second life.

We rescue unwanted wood, pulp & paper

Every year we divert millions of pounds of wood, pulp and paper remnants from landfills in alignment with sustainable forestry initiatives (SFI).

Materials are reworked & refined

Wood remnants are ground and pelleted. Pulp and virgin paper fiber is reworked using sustainable practices, plant-based ingredients and proprietary technology.

Upcycled for good

Materials are crafted for optimum performance, tested rigorously to meet quality standards and refined to create products specific to the needs of your pet.

Packaged for pet people

Finished materials are boxed, bagged and sent on their way to be found at retail locations worldwide.

Sustainable from start to finish.

Being made entirely of natural plant-based fiber, our products can be returned from where they came – the earth.

More about our sustainability practices

Sustainability matters.

Healthy Pet utilizes materials such as cellulose fiber and natural wood from sustainable sources, free from harmful chemicals and other pollutants, and we've been doing it for over 35 years.

Variations in product, color, texture and size can occur due to our commitment to using these sustainable materials to protect the future of our planet.

Fibers designed by nature.

Natural plant fiber has an ability to absorb amazing amounts of moisture and does so fast using its capillary action required in nature. We enhance that process with complex technical processes to develop materials beyond compare in the features that make them great products for your pets.

Smart parents.

We are lucky to be supported with over 100 years of experience and research from our parent company JRS, J. RETTENMAIER & Sohne. A worldwide leader in natural fiber processing for use in pet care, life sciences, automotive, and a broad range of additional applications. Their extensive knowledge of sustainability and best practices is incomparable across the globe.

Talk nerdy to me:


Fibers are able to absorb and encapsulate a level of moisture many times their volume, keeping your pet clean and dry


Natural plant fiber binds and traps liquids and odors so they can't escape


99% or no airborne dust – our unique manufacturing process ensures a cleaner, healthier home


No harmful chemicals, dyes or scents

Healthy Pet does not perform, endorse or commission any testing on animals whatsoever
