Ryan Bethencourt, vegan CEO of the plant-based dog food Wild Earth scored big on the Shark Tank TV show! He got more than a half a million dollar investment from the investor, entrepreneur, and owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban! How did Ryan score this massive investment? How did he prep for his Shank Tank appearance? Did the Sharks actually eat his vegan dog treat? Why does Ryan think Mark took the plunge into this new company?

Ryan got into the trenches on the Shark Tank show, sharing his product, and the mission of Wild Earth to take animals out of pet food. The investors on the show had some fun poking jokes about veganism and vegan dog treats, but ultimately Mark Cuban invested over half a million dollars into this innovative company. Surprisingly, a few of the investors even tasted the dog treats, which are human food grade. The exposure from this show helped spread the message that if you really love animals you avoid feeding animals to other animals if you can. Wild Earth makes that possible!

“Wild Earth‘s Good Protein Dog Snacks are free of animal ingredients, antibiotics, growth hormones, artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, additives, fillers, and mystery ingredients. The veterinarian-developed formula offers omega fatty acids, digestion-boosting enzymes, and prebiotics to support gastrointestinal microbiomes.” Wild Earth has made aims to make a “highly-digestible” plant-based protein for dogs using an ancient fungus called koji that gives the treats a meaty texture dogs love!

Their treats offer a sustainable option that is better for the environment and will save the lives of countless animals. Please check out these treats! Jane’s three rescue dogs love them. I personally have two subscriptions to this dog treat company because my dog loves them so much too! Choose peaceful plant-based alternatives to feed your furry companions. Congratulations on your success Wild Earth! We are eagerly awaiting the release of your new vegan dog kibble!
