Sonny Foods of Bellingham buys local pet treat maker

Sonny Foods’ owners, Steve and Helen Brenk, have taken ownership of a local company that makes dog and cat treats.

The Brenks bought Salmon Paws Premium Pet Treats from founder Debbie Wakabayashi in June. Sonny Foods has already been producing Salmon Paws’ products since 2007.

The cat and dog treats, made with sockeye salmon, are produced in Bellingham.

Wakabayashi was inspired by her own dogs to create the business five years ago.

Salmon Paws’ new owners plan to continue the company’s “Giveback” program, where 10 percent of its online sales are donated to the Los Angeles-based Lange Foundation, a no-kill animal shelter.
