Our Commitment to Eliminate Waste

For the past three years, we have been introducing ways to help eliminate waste that would normally go to the landfill.  We are committed to working towards a zero waste business model.  Take a moment to explore the ways we have already implemented our commitment.  

Instead of the landfill

Tigers

Instead of tossing bones, hides and organs in the landfill, for almost two years we have worked with the Denver Aquarium to introduce a prey model diet for the tigers.  

Wolves

Excess bones, hides and organs are donated to the Wolf Sanctuary near Colorado Springs.

Raw Pet Food

Meat that has been in our case for more than three days, organs and bones are used to produce Raw Pet Food.  Learn More about our Pet Food!

Composting

We are currently in the works of locating a composting group to take scraps that are inedible for human or pet consumption.  Know someone or a company who might be interested?  Contact Us!

Say No to Plastic

Plastic bags are a danger to our community.  It is estimated that more than three billion plastic bags are in our landfills.
