WINNIPEG, MB (February 28, 2024) - Smack Pet Food is proud to be a part of the “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags honoring the year’s best and brightest stars. These gift bags are given to Oscar® nominees in the major acting and directing categories. They are provided independently by Distinctive Assets which has no official relationship with the Oscars® themselves.

Smack’s Cat Meal Variety pack, presented in a fun, canvas “My Cat’s on Smack” tote, will be gifted to this year’s top acting and directing nominees including Colman Domingo, Jeffrey Wright, Lily Gladstone, Carey Mulligan, Sterling K. Brown, Mark Ruffalo, Danielle Brooks, America Ferrera, Da'Vine Joy Randolph and Christopher Nolan.


“As a small, 17-year old family-owned business committed to the highest standard of pet nutrition, inclusion in these unique gift bags gives Smack the opportunity to raise brand awareness about our no-compromise approach to nutrition, using 100% natural, organic superfood ingredients like blueberry and turmeric, and human grade, Canadian proteins like wild-caught salmon,” explains Smack Co-Founder Michael Giller.


“Smack prides itself on our positive, holistic approach to pet nutrition, and our philanthropic efforts to ensure pets everywhere have access to healthy food. For example, Smack donated over 12,000 meals to cats at the Winnipeg Humane Society so far this year,” continued Giller. 


“The whole Smack family congratulates the 2024 Nominees, and hopes their pets enjoy a healthy, delicious bowl of Smack while they watch their humans dazzle on the red carpet!” added Co-Founder Jonathon Giller.
