In 1997, Daniel Hereford started his career in the pet industry. As President of Pets Global, Inc., he created Zignature in 2012. Using his years of experience on both the manufacturing and retail sides of the pet product business, he's helped Pets Global Inc., put together industry-leading products for furry family members.

Zignature's launching was a commitment to creating a pet food that addressed common food sensitivities in dogs. The goal was to make food that did so, with low glycemic binders. Hereford was motivated to do so in order to meet the dietary restrictions of his boxer, Ziggy, and of course, he wanted to use high-quality ingredients. The success Hereford found in giving Ziggy high-quality, specialized formulas led to him sharing the recipes with pet parents and then the world.

Pets Global is based out of Southern California and has brands in more than 8,000 retailers around the world. Pets Global teams with BSM Partners, and together form a network of experts who hold multiple PhDs in Food Science and Animal Nutrition. All formulas are balanced and complete recipes, and all formulas are 100% in compliance with the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).

Zignature is not about mass made recipes and formulas. All meals are made in kitchens in South Dakota and Minnesota with trusted partners, and they use high-quality, nutritious ingredients. All ingredients are globally sourced and carefully researched for optimal nutrition. Zignature's Pork, Whitefish, Salmon, Trout, Catfish and turkey comes from the United States. Goat and Kangaroo come from Australia while the Venison comes from New Zealand. Their Duck and Guinea Fowl comes from Western France. No sourcing comes from China.

Pets Global Inc., puts all formulas under rigorous testing for nutritional requirements before they release them to the public, and they're committed to ensuring high-quality food for your dogs.

Pets Global is committed to serving dogs all over, and they have donated over $256,000 in Zignature to local communities, shelters, and organizations.

The Zignature line is expansive, too, with over 13 different formulas to meet the needs of all dogs.
