Why Chewy.com? Well, maybe you’ve seen the viral posts on social media about how pet owners will often receive bereavement flowers when their beloved pet dies? This happened to us last June, when our 12-year-old Golden Retriever died of lymphoma. I had to call and cancel our Chewy.com autoship and the representative was so kind and caring as I did. Lo and behold, a week later, we received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Chewy.com, with my representative’s most sincere condolences.

My sister and brother-in-law tragically lost both of their dogs this past weekend. After this happened they received two…

Or, maybe you know that the founders of Chewy.com, Ryan Cohen and Michael Day, really do love pets. All pets–your pets and mine, and especially theirs! In fact, Cohen said that his teacup poodle Tylee was the motivator when it came to starting Chewy.com, as he felt like it was a natural thing do to–just feeding his baby. The pair still handwrite (yes, handwrite) holiday cards for customers (got one myself last December!) and let them know the commitment to their pets is legit.

And yes, Chewy’s customer service and product offerings are top notch! Prices are affordable, product lines are broad and far-reaching and there is nothing like having your dog’s din-din delivered to the door the day or two after you hit ‘submit’ on your computer. Particularly when you live in small areas with not a lot to offer (ahem, my life right now), Chewy is a lifesaver for anything pet you need, and quickly!

But what we love most about Chewy.com is their philanthropy and utter dedication to pets. Period. Well, pets and the humans that love and care for them so much. If your pup doesn’t like that $50 bag of organic New Zealand lamb kibble you wanted to try, Chewy refunds immediately and tells you to donate that bag to a local shelter in need. For the record, though, because Chewy.com feels like all its customers’ pets are family, it won’t sell any product that doesn’t meet its rigorous evidence-based standards for what’s going to be good for your pet. A company that values what’s good for your furry family member over their pocket-book, if you will.

And they donate portions of proceeds to organizations you choose through their Animal Rescue and Shelter Network system. Rescues and shelters can contact Chewy.com to become a supported organization, and then purchases under those organizations’ links benefit the rescue or shelter. Again, when a pet product company looks at how to help animals even if it bites into their profit, we’re all in.

We could go on and on about how they’re also a licensed pharmacy, so your vet can simply give you a prescription (especially handy for maintenance medicines) and Chewy.com will make sure you always have what you need, or that they are available for customer service 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week, or how they’re committed to sustainable production and taking care of employees so they can take care of us, and more.

But the bottom line is that they just want to offer quality products at affordable prices so people can take care of their furry family members the best way they can. We are so here for it!
