Better With Pets



A healthy pet is a happy pet is a happy owner.


When someone mentions Purina, what do you imagine? Pet food. Lots and lots of pet food. But behind those pebbles of nutrients is a core belief that shapes every aspect of Purina: people with pets are better together. It’s a simple idea, but Purina needed to remind the world who they really are.

We teamed with agency Zeus Jones to create a film series revealing the true heart of this legacy brand through the sometimes simple and often times extraordinary narratives of people and their pets.

The resulting films collected over a million views online and found a national television audience.
