In one of those all too infrequent flashes of inspiration we get, we saw that our treats would be the perfect one-for-one product. Gary, who is married to Vicky, one of our founders, was prevailed upon to build her a proper drying room as a Christmas present (you may remember the song: ‘All I Want for Christmas is a Liver Treat Drying Room’) and six weeks later we were up and running.

So far, we've given away 56,273 packets of treats to 125 rescue homes
Every few weeks we make up special packages of our delicious, 100% natural liver treats and deliver them to rescue centres recommended by our customers. They are used both as treats and training aids (thus helping a dog find a new, forever home). Many rescue centres are also now selling Beautiful Joe’s, which is a double win as they not only raise extra cash but can also claim the free ‘give away’ treats for themselves.
Beautiful Joe was a real-life dog who lived in Canada in the 1890s. He was rescued from a brutal farmer and became the subject of a best-selling book. Its author, Margaret Saunders, devoted her life to championing the rights of animals. As, in our small way, we also aim to champion the rights of animals, we decided to name our dog treats after Beautiful Joe.
