PetPlate, a NYC-based direct-to-consumer subscription service that delivers fresh-cooked pet meals, closed a $4m seed funding round.
The round was led by Dane Creek Capital with participation from Amity Supply, SWAT Equity, The Yard Ventures, Castor Ventures, and BrandProject.
The company will use the funds to scale operations to meet demand.
Founded by Renaldo Webb in 2016, PetPlate sells human-grade meals for dogs in pre-portioned containers that can be served from the fridge or warmed up in a microwave. The meals are kettle-cooked in a USDA facility, using fresh meat, produce, and a proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals, and are formulated for a dog’s diet by the company’s veterinary clinical nutritionist, Dr. Renee Streeter.
