A BETTER WORLD FOR PETS™
Mars Petcare has agreed to be the principal sponsor of the movie because it provides a strong proof point of the extraordinary ways that pets make our lives better as acting in support of our purpose of Making a Better World for Pets™.
We believe that pets make the world a better place, they help to keep people fit and active, aid those with mental and physical illnesses, and make communities feel more connected. There is even mounting evidence that shows that pet ownership can potentially reduce the cost of human care. Pets make our world happier, counteracting loneliness and acting as a source of comfort. They are loving companions and loyal friends. Pets make our world safer, rescuing people in disasters and helping to make our cities more secure. Pets can even help children learn, boost their concentrations, and improve their understanding of empathy and responsibility. They can also help children physically develop by reducing the risk of allergies over time.
At Mars Petcare, we believe that “A Better Worlds for Pets” is a world where there are more healthy, happy and welcome pets. We want pets to live their healthiest, happiest lives. We want all pets to be able to live with caring owners and to get the nutrition and healthcare they need. We want them to be widely, warmly welcomed into our societies, in cities homes and workplace and beyond.
As a family business guided by our Five Principles, we are privileged to have the flexibility to fight for what we believe in, and we chose to fight for A Better Worlds for Pets™.
