Keep Your Dog Happy & Healthy With These Great Tips!

2016 was a PAW-some year at Barkworthies.

We kicked off a special campaign, Chews Rescue, in March and April that donated over $12,000 in funds and dog treats to a Richmond, VA animal shelter. People participated by entering a photo of their rescue dog- we loved all the response and support we got!


Below, what just a few of our happy customers thought of Barkworthies!



This cutie visited Dee-O-Gee in Bozeman, Montana to pick up a Braided Beef Gullet, Bully Stick, sausage sticks, and other Barkworthies goodies! Like a kid in a candy store :).


This Boxer tried our Sweet Potato Chips and loved them!


Here Herky the Cavalier from Canada is considering her Split Elk Antler chew before the fun begins.


From all of us at Barkworthies, we wish you a happy, healthy, and DELICIOUS 2017!

We at Barkworthies are huge proponents of animal rescue. Many of our employees' dogs are rescues, and we know how important it is to give deserving animals a loving home. This is why we launched the Chews Rescue campaign this spring: it was our way of giving back to animal rescue.

We partnered with one of the great animal shelters in our local Richmond, Virginia, Richmond Animal League. This no-kill shelter has been around since 1979 and has helped thousands of animals. In 2015, they adopted out over 2,000 animals!


Here is what Christi Kampanos, Events Coordinator of Richmond Animal League, had to say about the generous donation: 

"The Barkworthies Chews Rescue campaign will do so much for RAL. The campaign raised over $10,000 which will do a ton for our shelter. Just to put that into perspective, it costs well over $150 every time we intake an animal including shelter, food, vaccines, and general intake expenses. We take in over 2,000 cats, dogs, puppies, and kittens annually, so the funds raised through this campaign will help all of them in some way. It’s quite an impact in itself, and every dollar directly benefits the animals. We are so grateful for Barkworthies' partnership and can’t wait to work with them again in the future."




Barkworthies has an exciting new campaign that we can't wait to tell you about!

The Chews Rescue Shelter Program, launched this March, is our way to support rescue animals! We have partnered with a local animal shelter, Richmond Animal League, to award them a $10,000 Donation. We are running a 2-month Facebook campaign that invites pet parents to support animal rescue by sharing photos and stories of their own pet. For each entry in this Facebook contest, we will donate an additional $5 to the Richmond Animal League for each Facebook entry (March 1 - April 30, 2016).

At the end of our Facebook campaign, one lucky dog entered in the Chews Rescue Facebook Contest will be randomly selected to receive a year’s supply of Barkworthies treats and chews. Additionally, we will make a 500-piece product donation to an animal shelter in the winner’s honor!

We developed the Chews Rescue program as a tribute to everyone who assists in animal rescue and the positive
impact it makes on individual families and the community. Our CEO & Co-Founder Avrum Elmakis said,

“When my wife and I got our dogs, Espy and Sushi, it changed our lives. They were the inspiration to create Barkworthies and, ultimately, shaped the brand’s commitment and standards. We hope the Chews Rescue program gives back in a meaningful and significant way – it’s our way of saying thank you.”

For those of you who have purchased a Barkworthies product, you will see our rescue dog spokesdogs on our packaging and displays.
Our rescue model is Jackson, a 3 year old Australian cattle dog, pit bull terrier and border collie mix. Today, Jackson and his adoptive parents have Companion Pet Rescue to thank for their happily-ever-after.

It’s stories like these that Barkworthies is hoping to celebrate and inspire more of with their Chews Rescue shelter program. Those interested in supporting animal rescue are encouraged to enter Chews Rescue, and we'll will donate $5 to the cause in their honor:
