Ava's Story

Hi! I'm so glad you're here. ๐Ÿ‘‹

Hey guys! I'm Ava, 15-year-old Founder and Chief Pet Officer of Ava's Pet Palace. Iโ€™ve always loved animals and had a passion for helping them. When I was just 6 years old I drew my first business plan.ย Two years later, after asking and asking, my parents finally decided to help me make my dreams come true with Ava's Pet Palace!

I started my business because I wanted to create a healthier world for pets, people and our planet. That's my purpose. I love pets, the same way they love us.ย That's why my treats are made with simple, organic and all-natural ingredients. To keep pets happy, healthy, and feeling great. My treats are nutritious and delicious.ย And pet-parent approved!

For me, healthy food has always been about organic and natural ingredients. I've been purposeful about this from the beginning. When I was baking treats in my kitchen, we only bought and used organic ingredients. Now that my business has grown, we work with bigger kitchens and they use only the best, high quality ingredients. And we've worked hard to become USDA Certified Organic!

My business really took off in June 2020 thanks to the many people that shared my story on social media. Avaโ€™s Pet Palace has grown into an amazing community of pet parents, animal lovers and animal advocates. We all share the belief that all pets (in our homes, living in shelters, or even homeless) deserve lots of love, kindness, and the best nutrition.ย 

I now have happy customers in all 50 states and my treats are in over 200 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.

Thank you so much for visiting my business. I hope we make you smile today! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ’•
