More than 100 Santa Clarita Valley locals joined Pet Me Happy Treats founders Stephen K. Peeples and his wife Nadine A. Peeples for the company’s official Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce Grand Opening ribbon-cutting and celebration on July 11.
Maker of all-natural Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries, Pet Me Happy Treats is a Santa Clarita-based online e-commerce business (PetMeHappy.com) that also has local brick-and-mortar retail outlets. One of the retailers, Shelter Hope Pet Shop, a nonprofit pet rescue and adoption agency headed by Dani Caouette, hosted the ribbon-cutting at its Town Center Mall location in Valencia.
SCV Chamber officials, local civic dignitaries, business and community leaders, charter Artisan Dog Treats customers, friends, family members and assorted pets packed the shop, mixing and mingling and meeting the two Peeples and Lennon, their faithful canine companion. The couple adopted the 8-year-old Chihuahua-terrier mix on October 9 (John Lennon’s birthday) last year as the Peeples’ new family dog and Pet Me Happy Treats’ Official Canine Mascot and Spokesdog.
Among the dignitaries attending and making official presentations were Santa Clarita Mayor Pro-Tem Laurene Weste, Santa Clarita Councilmember Marsha McLean, and representatives of California Assemblyman Dante Acosta, State Senator Scott Wilk, U.S. Congressman Steve Knight and the SCV Chamber’s Cheryl Ramirez.
Two-legged guests enjoyed the savory gourmet appetizers served up by Bonefish Grill’s five-star Valencia restaurant, also at Town Center Mall, and meeting and greeting the adoptable pets available at Shelter Hope.
Pet Me Happy Treats and Shelter Hope share a mission of advocating adoption over euthanasia for animals, and Pet Me Happy now donates a 2 oz. bag of Artisan Dog Treats to the goodie bag that goes home with each dog adopted at Shelter Hope.
In addition to the Pet Me Happy Treats online store at PetMeHappy.com, three retail outlets are now stocking Pet Me Happy’s Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries: Canyon Pet Center (on Soledad Canyon Road and Whites Canyon in Canyon Country, in the Food 4 Less center); Happy Pets Veterinary Center (on Newhall Ranch Road at Dickason near Valencia High School); and Shelter Hope (on the first floor inside Town Center Mall, next to the Sears entrance). More stores will be added soon.
Artisan Dog Treats are available in resealable 2 oz., 6 oz. and 12 oz. bags, and in larger bulk quantities by special order.
Longtime Canyon Country residents Stephen K. and Nadine Peeples established Pet Me Happy Treats in mid-2015. After much taste-testing on themselves and scores of different dogs, the couple perfected their healthy, all-natural recipe, found an artisan baker in L.A. County, and introduced Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries in fall 2016. The reviews from customers have been overwhelmingly positive.
