Oil-Dri began with a goal to provide products that would improve workplace safety. Since then, we have become a worldwide leader in producing, marketing and selling sorbent mineral technology. Although much about our company has changed since 1941, our values and business ethics have stayed the same. We remain a family-controlled and family-operated organization that emphasizes honesty, integrity and accountability. We foster a resourceful and pioneering spirit within our team members in order to create sorbent mineral products for a diverse group of industries, spanning both consumer and business to business markets.

Our corporate mission is to Create Value From Sorbent Minerals. We embrace that mission daily through innovation and a strong commitment to our founding principles. We are passionate about continuously improving the value our customers receive from our products and services. At Oil-Dri, our past drives our future… a future full of opportunity.


We are very excited to share the Cat’s Pride® Litter for Good generous donation on The Drew Barrymore Show. Through the show, Cat’s Pride is thrilled to help support Meow Parlour cat cafe in New York City by providing a cash donation of $10,000 and 16,000 pounds of donated litter! Not only did this opportunity allow us to help more animals in need, but we were able to reach The Drew Barrymore Show’s massive audience of 1M viewers a day with our brand mission of empowering pet parents to do extraordinary things. The entire segment is worth the watch for context, but Cat’s Pride’s heartfelt donation and mention begins around the 5:00 mark.
