PET PALETTE ADDS TWO VENDORS
IN WELLNESS CATEGORY
Pet Palette LLC, a Sykesville, Md.-based national distributor of pet
products, is expanding its wellness
category with the addition of Bag
Balm, made by Vermont’s Original, and VetriScience, a division of
FoodScience Corp. Both product
lines are made in Vermont.
“We have a strategic initiative
BOO BOO’S BEST TEAMS UP WITH CANADIAN DISTRIBUTOR
to increase the brands that we sell
in the wellness category,” said Mi-
chael Dagne, president and COO
of Pet Palette LLC. “Specifically,
we are looking for products that
are USA made, have an excel-
lent reputation and focus for the
well-being of our pets. We feel
Vermont’s Original and Vetri-
Science do exactly that, and we
look forward to bringing their
brands to the independent market
that we service.”
Boo Boo’s Best has teamed up with Natural Pet Distributors, which
will distribute the San Francisco-based company’s line of Boosters!
Training Treats, Food Toppers and Single-Ingredient Treats in Ontario, Canada.
The Boosters! line features exotic proteins such as goat, kangaroo,
rabbit, alligator, salmon, and pork and wild boar.
“Natural Pet Distributors has a great passion for and dedication
to providing the most wholesome, natural pet products available,
and this fits perfectly with the philosophy of Boo Boo’s Best,” said
Jocelyn Rosenthal, owner of Boo Boo’s Best. “Our Boosters! are
all-natural, grain, corn and soy free, and contain no artificial ingredients or ingredients from China.”
ELLO PET SUPPLY TO DISTRIBUTE ORGANIC CATNIP TOYS
Ello Pet Supply in Wheat Ridge, Colo., has expanded its distribution partnership with Colorado Kitty Pot to include the company’s
Munchie line of toys. Colorado Kitty Pot sales benefit Harley’s Hope
Foundation, a charity that ensures low-income pet owners and their
animals remain together when issues arise. Their goal is to prevent
at-risk animals from being surrendered or euthanized.
Ello will offer six catnip toys handmade in Colorado with organic
catnip, which include: Kickin Back Kitty, Cornish Crown, Bobtail
Bop, Ragdoll Roll, Tabby’s Taco and Purrrsian Pizza. The taco and
pizza toys are refillable.
“As demand increases for cat toys in the marketplace, we looked
for made in USA cat toys that had a strong give-back program. Kitty
Pot works directly with Harley’s Hope Foundation, which was very
important to us and our customers,” said Jaime Rowe, president.
