Freshpet features cats from the Humane Society of Utah in video asking which pet is better

For the second time, shelter pets from the Humane Society of Utah have been featured in a Freshpet video to highlight shelter and rescue pets in a positive manner and help reduce the stigma of shelter animals as unwanted or less than perfect pets. In the video released online March 30, 2015, “Cats vs Dogs: Which Pet Is Better?” the question regarding which is the better pet is approached in a humorously deductive manner.
