Treats with a BIGGER purpose
The Arc of Allegan County is committed to creating opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities within Allegan County. With this commitment at the forefront, we have developed a pet-focused business called Beyond Bones.
Within Allegan County, Beyond Bones creates an inclusive workplace that employs individuals with a wide range of skills. Our mission is to cultivate opportunities for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities to grow both personally and professionally and contribute to their community in a meaningful way.
When you purchase Beyond Bones for your furry friend you are not only providing your dog with a wholesome all-natural biscuit you are also providing employment for a person with a disability here in Allegan County. - Thank you!
Beyond Bones believes:
All people can provide meaningful contributions in an inclusive workplace. Businesses thrive when we incorporate all of our employees ideas and skills and recognize that honoring employees' interests creates a stronger workplace.
All employees are entitled to a competitive wage for the work they perform.
Learning and growth never stop. All individuals have the ability to expand on their skills and experiences through opportunity.
The workplace will always be a place where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, where teamwork is expected and creativity and innovation are encouraged.
We embrace a culture of collaboration. We understand that far more can be accomplished when we partner with community businesses and organizations/agencies to strengthen our work.
We will provide a quality product and excellent customer service that create opportunities for growth within our community.
