Why We Started Raw Pets!
Hello, my name is Sonja and I am from the Tampa Bay area. I am a proud dog mom of three German Shorthaired Pointers. As a young child I have always had such a passion for food, which later led me to become a personal chef. I cooked organic personalized meals to meet individuals specific dietary needs and delivered them personally. It has been such a rewarding feeling to have customers tell me how my cooking has improved their health and goals, and how much they enjoy my cooking. From my experience I will be the first one to say, quality is everything. Food is our medicine.
What We Carry…
Our goal is to provide our fur customers with brands that we believe in for who they are and how they make their products. Natural, Fresh, Whole Foods and Quality is everything to us.

Albright’s has been selling and producing food for people for over 30 years. Their first meat market, Albright’s Meats & Deli, opened in 2004, and the second one in 2014. The Albright’s have always strived to provide excellent quality meat at a reasonable price.
For years, customers have asked about raw meat for their dogs. After doing a lot of research they quickly realized that this was something that they could produce. It would fit in well with their core philosophy- excellent quality, reasonable price. With a lot more research, testing, testing and more testing, and licensing, they developed Albright’s All Natural Raw Dog Food.
All meat ingredients originate in the US with the exception of kelp which is from Canada. All meat ingredients are from USDA facilities that require pathogenic bacteria testing before released. Each item has to pass and be approved for human consumption. All other food ingredients are approved for human consumption, eggs and kale are organic, verification provided. No supplements are used because the food is balanced through food ingredients.

Founder, Angela Ardolino, knew the profound benefits of using CBD enriched hemp oil to treat her medical issues. But when she looked for safe, vegan, non-GMO, full-spectrum CBD formulated specifically for her dogs, she realized something: There wasn’t any. So she decided to change that. Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (CBD), a wide range of cannabinoids, and terpenes — the compounds in the plant that create therapeutic results. Carefully formulated with all-natural ingredients and full spectrum cannabinoid blends, so there is something here to benefit every pet. In addition, CBD Dog Health guarantees potency and purity through third-party lab testing.

The Dancing Goat has been recognized for the hard work and great care they put into everything they do. They serve as Farm Branch for the National Humane Society rescuing both farm animals and domestic felines.

Four Leaf Rover promises to keep the planet safe for you and your dog. Pet products can have a significant environmental impact so every ingredient and piece of packaging is chosen for minimal impact.

Dr. Bessent is the Herbsmith. She realized early on that the pet industry was satisfied with meeting the bare minimums. She knew animals needed so much more and she was optimistic about the fact that pet parents would wholeheartedly agree. So, she’s been on a mission to reshape those norms.
The Herbsmith knows every dog and cat is different. Not just the shape of their ears or the length of their tails, but their predispositions, metabolisms, personalities– and they know that they can do so much more.
It’s not just about adding ingredients to the bowl either. Putting a splash of bone broth or kefir does not give a dog all that his joints need, or a cat enough probiotics for a balanced gut biome.
To truly have a positive impact on your pet’s health, you need to curate the bowl for your dog and cat.
It’s not a one-size-fits-all world and we’re going to prove it by curating the bowl to redefine what “healthy” looks like for a cat and dog.
The Simple Food Project practices seasonally sustainable sourcing. We prefer to source as locally as possible, but we always make our sourcing decisions based on the quality of ingredients. Every ingredient comes from the US, but we made one exception for our wild-caught krill. We source that from Norway because it promises the absolute highest quality of ingredients in our recipes.
Dr. Bessent has over 30 years of experience in both traditional and holistic medicine. In her practice, Dr. Bessent saw time and time again that the patients who ate well, healed well. This just reaffirmed her belief in the power of whole food nutrition, solidifying the idea that all pets needed access to real, whole food diets.
Every ingredient, each production phase, the exact batch of food that you buy is logged for complete traceability because safety and quality always remain our top priorities.
