Lindsay Rubin is the Vice President at v-dog, a San Francisco-based vegan dog food company. Forever obsessed with animals, she ran her own dog sitting business in high school and went on to college where she became a vegetarian. After learning about the dairy and egg industries, she went vegan and became an animal rights activist. In 2013, she met Dave, the late founder of v-dog, and started working with the company as the first full-time employee. Fast forward to the present, Lindsay is proud to help lead v-dog – the current largest ethical, vegan business in the pet food space.
