Hi! I'm so glad you're here. 👋
My name is Ava and I love animals! I love them so much that when I was 6 years old I begged my parents to start my business. Finally after constant pleading, I launched Ava's Pet Palace in 2016. Since then, I've been making organic and all-natural dog and cat treats in our family kitchen.
It's been a lot of hard work. And my business really took off last June thanks to a lot of kind people who shared it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I now have customers in all 50 states and Canada and I've even shipped my treats to the UK and New Zealand!
With the help of my mom, who now works for Ava's Pet Palace full time, we process hundreds of orders each month.
Thank you so much for visiting my business. I hope we make you smile today! 😊🐶🐱💕
I have a dream for a business.
I made this original "business plan" (I called it a "job plan" then) when I was just 6 years old! I'm still working towards achieving my goals! Thank you for supporting me. 🤗💕
Mom and dad finally say yes.
I'm so excited to be starting my own business at 8 years old! I love ❤️ animals! Here, I'm making a yummy, healthy, organic cat food. 🥣🐈
