About Us

WildPaws As A Philosophy

Our canine and feline companions thrive on the meat-based diets of their wild ancestors. We take our cue from that evolutionary past. 

WildPaws Pantry was founded to help you understand our animal companions’ natural nutritional needs and choose a wholesome, biologically appropriate raw diet that helps them thrive.

Raw can feel overwhelming at first: endless selections, conflicting opinions and obscure labeling. Founded by a Certified Nutritional Practitioner & Raw Pet Food Pro, WildPaws is committed to demystifying raw.

We carefully curate healthy options of the highest quality and will happily walk you through the options to help you make informed, practical choices that suit the specific needs of your dog or cat. 

Every animal’s health status and dietary needs are unique. We want you to feel confident that the food you offer supports their vitality, longevity and quality of life. Let’s raise resilient pets together and make those tails wag!

Meet the Founder

Lauren,
Certified Nutritional Practitioner & Raw Pet Food Pro

WildPaws Pantry is personal.

I was introduced to raw feeding in 2005. My 8-week-old Labrador pup, Gage, came home with a bloated belly and was noticeably uncomfortable. My knowledge of physiology and nutrition first led me to investigate his food source. I was disappointed to learn about the mislabeling of conventional pet foods. It made me think about my own body and the notion of “food for fuel”. What we eat impacts our health, and it must be the same for our pets.

I explored alternative diets; often consulting with like-minded pet owners and a Holistic Veterinarian. A home-cooked, BARF diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Diet) quickly resolved Gage’s bloating, his energy increased and he loved his new food! Other benefits quickly appeared: a shiny coat, white teeth, bright eyes, healthier poops, incredible stamina - all indications that raw feeding was the best choice I could make for my dog.

Today, I am proud to be part of the raw feeding movement, and working toward my Raw Pet Food Specialist and Raw Dog Food Nutrition Specialist Certifications. 

My affection for my dogs and love for all animals inspires WildPaws. I strive everyday to engage others to plug-in to their pets overall wellness. I’m here to help make raw feeding and healthy alternatives simple to understand and easily accessible to fellow pet parents - because our furry family members deserve the very best from us!
