Growlies takes a completely different approach to pet food. Based on their own research and experience, they took the bold step of declaring Growlies a "kibble-free" zone. That's right, they only sell grain-free freeze-dried, dehydrated, canned, cooked and raw foods, with no "walls of candy-coated cereal." They focus on healthy options to feed your pet, sourcing raw foods from the local region. They have a Growlies Points program to reward loyal customers.

Our Company

 
We are Jo-Anne and Neal Cropper and we started Growlies near the end of 2007, just after the biggest pet food recall we had ever experienced. We were unsure as to what we should buy for our three irreplaceable pets. Jo-Anne has a background of having worked as a Veterinarian's Assistant for a number of years. Through that, she has more knowledge of the pet food industry than myself (Neal). So she and I started researching with a shared interest in pet health. Jojo was the one who proposed a raw pet food diet to me; we had always fed kibble. As we started reading and learning about pet food and what the possible ingredients looked like, we were flabbergasted, to say the least.
 
Jojo and I decided that our neighborhood needed a pet food option dedicated to the health of our pets. There was a spot available locally that made sense and we had the ability to do it, so we jumped right in.
 
By only carrying raw, dehydrated and freeze dried raw and canned foods, Growlies takes a different approach than the traditional pet health food store. Growlies is a kibble free zone. Locally owned and run, Growlies has a focus on local and healthy options to feed to your pets. At Growlies, we believe if your customer is there for you, then you should be there for your customer. To assist us in meeting this simple direction, you can locate us on many social media platforms:
 
 
I'll end with the slogan that came out of these core values and is used on our website: "Healthy Pets and Happy People." That's it, that's what we want to see. If we are able to assist only one family in having a healthier pet for a longer period than was otherwise possible, then it was all worth it.
