Company/organization description (<500 characters)

At Paul’s Custom Pet Food, we prepare fresh, handmade food for dogs, cats, and companion animals. We source as many local ingredients as possible, as we believe doing so contributes to both a healthy pet and a vibrant regional economy. Our food may be used as a topper or customized to meet pets’ complete dietary needs. We sell direct-to-consumer, work with veterinarians to create custom recipes, and take pride in developing personal relationships with our two- and four-legged customers. Read about our inspiration, a 13-year-old cancer-surviving Golden Retriever named Hunter, at paulscustompetfood.com.

We solidified relationships within the national veterinary nutritionist community and are a top-of-mind maker of food for pets with special dietary needs. We are now poised to introduce new products in 2020 and beyond - including a long-awaited complete and balanced fresh cat food.

We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the Connecticut farmers' market community, particularly the Westport Farmers' Market. WFM embraced us during our very first year in business - fully appreciating that our fresh, handmade pet food is a logical extension of the whole-food movement for humans. We also thank the Community Economic Development Fund of Connecticut, the largest micro-lender in the state. They believed in our vision long before the concept of fresh pet food resonated with consumers, and continue to supply both the funding and professional advice we need to meet our objective of promoting healthy pets through fresh, whole food. Of course, none of our successes would be possible without the hundreds of dogs and cats we feed (and their humans, who understand the importance fresh food plays in raising a healthy companion).

 

What people are saying about Paul's Custom Pet Food LLC...

 Paul's Custom Pet Food was inspired by a beautiful Golden Retriever, Hunter. Hunter's owners, Lynn and Paul Gallant received a scare in 2010 their vet said the lump on Hunter's lower jaw was canine fibrosarcoma.
