Dick Van Patten to Receive a Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars
Back in 1989 Dick co-founded Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods. Since I work in the retail pet industry as a pet food buyer, I have had the honor of getting to know Mr Van Patten through his Natural Balance pet food team.
Dick loves all kinds of animals. But he often describes himself as a cat person. In addition to making a wide range of natural, holistic and organic dog and cat foods, his Natural Balance company feeds a number of animals at zoos around the country, including the world reknowned San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, and several service Dog organizations as well. In particular, his Natural Balance Zoological Formulas were developed specifically for lions, tigers, cheetahs, polar bears, snakes and carnivorous birds. He donates a significant amount of food to animal rescue organizations, Guide Dogs and other animal care organizations every year.
Sons Nels, Vincent, and Jimmy are also animal lovers as well. Jimmy Van Patten, a respected actor, writer and producer in his own right, has taken an active interest in his father's Natural Balance Pet Food company.
