Rescue Treats, a three-year-old business based in Jersey City, is giving back to dog rescues around the world in the form of all-natural dog treats. The founder, Arron Jones-Williams, took inspiration from his own life growing up in foster care to help dogs in need today. Read on to learn more about Rescue Treats and how it’s made an impact in the community.

Launching Rescue Treats

Rescue Treats was launched in the beginning of 2019. The workers bake the all-natural dog treats in an employee-only bakery and fulfillment center in The Heights at 418 Baldwin Street, Jersey City. Although it’s closed to the public, CEO Arron Jones-Williams told Hoboken Girl that locals come knocking on the oversized windows to get a tour of the facility. And, not only that, but some dogs have come knocking, too!

“Once I found the perfect location, I had to have it,” Arron shared. “The location is so perfect, we actually use a cargo e-bike to transport our equipment to Hoboken and across Jersey City for pop-ups.”

In addition to the baking facility, Rescue Treats has also opened an office in Harlem, NY. Arron left his career in finance in 2020 to take on Rescue Treats full time, while also volunteering for the Long Island Bulldog Rescue. 

“I am a former foster kid, so I know all about searching for a forever home. I’ve found my forever home and I want to help fund rescues to help dogs find their forever homes,” Arron told HG. “I started this company to give back to dog rescues while creating the best treats on the market.”

How Rescue Treats Works

All orders for Rescue Treats can be completed online. The treats have “no junk, no fillers, no preservatives, and no artificial ingredients.” The flavors available at the moment include banana and sweet potato, and pumpkin and peanut butter. Another flavor will be added this fall.

At checkout, customers can select a dog rescue from almost a dozen rescues that Rescue Treats works with. “This is really where we shine as the only company to support rescues with each purchase,” Arron said.

Customers can make a one-time purchase of a big bag (60+ treats) for $17.99 or subscribe and save for $16.99. The subscribe and save option is available on a bi-weekly plan, monthly plan, or six-week plan.

The list of dog rescues is “growing,” but for now, the list includes: ​Long Island Bulldog Rescue, Strong Paws Rescue, Rescue Pets Serving Vets, Badass Animal Rescue, Rescue Ridge Animal Shelter NJ, Happy Life Animal Rescue​​, Bichon Frise Rescue of Northern NJ, Northeast PA Pet Fund and Rescue, Halfway Home Animal Rescue, and Friends With Paws Rescue. ​(Rescues can sign up to join the donation program by emailing fundraise@rescuetreats.dog.)

In April, Rescue Treats teamed up with “Operation Mutual Aid For The Ukraine Firefighter” to send hundreds of bags of dog food to Ukraine in an effort to help dogs overseas. Locals and firefighters worked on “Operation Paw” with Rescue Treats to pack and label the food to get everything shipped as fast as possible.

“Charity has always been engraved in my heart, and I even helped finance an agricultural school in Senegal in West Africa with my mentor,” Arron said.

Support Rescue Treats

Arron tells HG that Rescue Treats will be participating in more pop-ups around Jersey City and Hoboken in the future, so you should keep an eye out for the pet friendly business in the area. “We have been receiving so much love from everyone nothing but love! We have the best followers ever,” Arron shared. “One dog walker [told me], ‘All my clients have your treats in their houses.’”

The good news is, because of the overwhelming amount of feedback, Rescue Treats might be featured in a major retailer after expressing interest in the doggie treats. “​We hope to get picked up by a few major retailers who believe in our vision,” Arron added.
