Hi! I'm so glad you're here. 👋
Creating a Healthier World for Pets, People, and Our Planet: The Story of Ava's Pet Palace
As a young girl, I had a passion for animals and a dream to create a healthier world for pets, people, and our planet. At just 6 years old, I drew my first business plan and two years later, with the help of my parents, I made my dream a reality with Ava's Pet Palace.
At Ava's Pet Palace, we believe in the power of simple, organic, and all-natural ingredients to keep pets happy, healthy, and feeling great. Our treats are not only nutritious and delicious, but they are also pet-parent approved. We use only the best, high-quality ingredients in our treats, and we are committed to using sustainable practices in our packaging and shipping.
As the Founder and Chief Pet Officer of Ava's Pet Palace, I am proud to be a part of the Pet Sustainability Coalition and to use sustainable practices in our packaging and shipping. Our bags are made from 30% post-consumer materials and all orders shipped from our website are carbon neutral.
But our commitment to the animal community goes beyond just making healthy treats. We are also dedicated to giving back to animal advocates and organizations each month. We believe that all pets, whether they are in our homes, living in shelters, or even homeless, deserve lots of love, kindness, and the best nutrition.
Our community of pet parents, animal lovers, and advocates share this belief and we are proud to have grown into an amazing community of like-minded individuals.
Today, Ava's Pet Palace is a growing business with happy customers throughout the US and our treats can be found in retailers nationwide. With the help of my mom, who works for Ava's Pet Palace full-time, we ship hundreds of bags of treats each month.
Join us on our mission to create a healthier world for pets, people, and our planet. Try our treats today and see the difference that simple, organic, and all-natural ingredients make.
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. 🥣🐈

My dog treats in stores!
So excited to see my treats on shelves!!! Thanks to Bentley's Pet Stuff for giving me my first opportunity! This is the display at Earthwise Pet in Naperville! You can still find my treats here today!🐾🐕♥️🥳
Young Entrepreneur Winner.
This was a big year, winning the WDB Young Entrepreneur of the Year competition. I wonder if people were able to tell I was so scared! There were over 700 people in front of me! 🐕🐾🐶
Time for change.
A big change happened in 2021! We successfully funded a kickstarter to launch my first treat made at a commercial kitchen! Next, we did a complete brand refresh in May and finally, in October, my USDA Certified Organic treats were released! Check out my full 2021 review! Thanks for joining me on my journey! It means so much to me. 🤗💗
A year of growth.
2022 was a year to remember for Ava's Pet Palace! We attended our first industry expos, sign with a distributor for our dog treats, expand into more stores nationwide, and for a limited time, our treats were even in over 1000 PetSmart stores! I was honored to be named the first participant in BSM Partners Young Entrepreneur Mentorship program, and we are proud to be active members of the Pet Sustainability Coalition. To top it off, our business was featured on the cover of three industry magazines! We are grateful for the support of our customers, community and team. Check out my full 2022 review!
