Saint Rocco’s founders, Kolby and Kaleb Rush, were both sent home from college (like all others across the nation) and lost their summer internships due to Covid-19. After many days of video games and virtual school they began to wonder how they could use their skills and knowledge to have an impact on the world.
They had a lifelong love for dogs, a passion for entrepreneurship, and the knowledge of dog treat craftsmanship thanks to their dad and grandpa. They knew dogs would taste the difference if they made treats that were baked fresh, handmade, and delivered locally. Alongside their dad, they spent months perfecting the 5 ingredient, human-grade, meat-based, dog treat recipes you see today.
Saint Rocco’s Treats gets its name from the patron saint of dogs: “Saint Rocco”. Saint Rocco spent his days as a doctor, healing all those who were ill. Eventually, he himself became ill but society could not help him. Thankfully, a dog came to his side, licked his wounds, and fed him bread each day until he fully recovered.
They remained friends for life and are symbolic of the love and loyalty dogs show us and we owe to them. With this as our guiding story we vow to always use human grade ingredients, use no harmful preservatives or manufacturing practices, and donate $1 to local dog rescues for every 1lb of treats sold.
Our belief is that 5 high-quality ingredients are all you need for a delicious dog treat. We want to ensure each customer recognizes and understands the value of each ingredient in our recipes. Our goal is to craft dog treats made with ingredients you recognize, quality they deserve.
