Hero’s Pets Seal of Approval

gold, Silver and bronze level

Here at Hero’s Pets we go to great lengths to make sure we have the best of the best products for your pet.  This is not always easy, for us or for you.  Hero’s Pets customers are certainly some adventurous, open-minded and quality seeking types of people. We really respect and admire our customers for these values which bring us together in search of good things.

There are many products that we would like to carry because they are well promoted by their manufacturers and popular because of their advertising and wide distribution.  Many of these familiar products are ones that we appreciate because they are a great introduction to “better” options than conventional offerings one might find in big box and grocery stores.  However, our mission is to seek out the very best product in every niche: every type of product for every budget.

We have so much gratitude for our customers, for taking this journey with us, as we explore the best natural, sustainable, local, ethical and healthy products that we can possibly find for your pet.
