Amy Jordan would be the first to tell you her life has "gone to the dogs." And the cats! Amy has always been an animal lover, but once she started volunteering for PAWS of Hertford County a few years ago, she realized how much she enjoyed doing good things for animals, even animals who would never be her own. But, of course, she does have her own! Her lively senior dog Lola came from XOXO Pet Rescue in January of 2015. She adopted her three cats (Pippa, Maverick and Linus) from PAWS in 2012 and 2013. Amy is the creator and editor of the rescue group's monthly e-newsletter Planet PAWS, assists with other public relations and social media functions, helps put on fundraising events, and has spent three years as an adoption counselor at their weekend adoption events.
Meanwhile, for seven years Amy spent her work-weeks commuting to nearby Norfolk for her job as Director of Marketing, Public Relations and Events at TASTE. It was truly a dream job, promoting delicious gourmet foods and culinary events for a successful, fast-growing company, but Amy dreaded leaving her fur kids alone all day and thought, "Wouldn't it be great to be able to work from home again--and be my own boss again?"
Before moving back to Virginia Beach to be closer to family and friends, Amy had built, owned and operated a luxury B&B in Vermont for 13 years. It was there that Amy enjoyed baking for the guests on a daily basis. She is also the former co-owner of a restaurant. Food and baking have always been part of her life.
An entrepreneur at heart, Amy decided to combine her passions and professional experience to form a new company, and after several months of planning, BowWowMeow Baking Co. was born. Amy is able to work from home much of the week and be with her fur kids, bake to her heart's content, build a brand centered around the dogs and cats she enjoys so much, help people enjoy their pets and give them something fresher, better and healthier than what is widely available, and contribute to the local animal rescue community at the same time. A perfect fit.
What Makes Us Different
BowWowMeow Baking Co. dog treats are handmade and baked up in small batches, using ingredients of uncompromising quality. Just as we care about where our own food comes from and what we put in our own bodies, the same holds true for our dogs, who deserve the best. Our treats are made from simple, wholesome, healthy ingredients--a world apart from the dye-, chemical- and preservative-filled treats found on grocery store shelves. Our flours are made from organic, non-GMO whole grains (oat and/or brown rice). We use fresh, local farm eggs. We use local honey, and our peanuts and all natural peanut butter come from nearby Suffolk, VA. We never use wheat, corn, soy (all common allergens for dogs) or anything artificial. Many of the ingredients used in our recipes have specific health benefits for your dog. Our treats come in 8 oz resealable pouches and can stay fresh at room temperature for several weeks. We recommend freezing for long-term storage. And the taste? Dogs love 'em! Try all of our wag-worthy flavors!
We also grow all natural catnip in our garden! It's never treated with any chemicals or pesticides.
We try to give local rescue groups and shelters a leg up by promoting their adoptable animals by sharing their profiles with our community on our website and social media sites (scroll down to follow our pages). Additionally, we periodically deliver a care package of our fresh, all natural treats for the shelter and foster dogs to enjoy.
Where can you find our treats? You can buy direct at our events in the area, shop online and have your order shipped (or delivered in zip code 23455) or pick some up at several fine local retailers, including Whole Foods and Care-A-Lot Pet Supply. See a full list of retailers.
