ABOUT SOUTHERN PAWS

My name is Shannon Jones, and I’m the founder of Southern Pawz. After my sweet Bella (my beloved chocolate Labrador Retriever fur baby) had a seizure in 2014, I began researching potentially harmful ingredients to dogs and found that some changes could help prevent another episode.

 With the help of many talented folks, we set out to create the highest quality products to share with fur babies everywhere, and Southern Pawz was born. Part of our mission is to treat each customer, producer, and retail business partner as we would a member of our family…the Southern way!

Just in case you haven’t figured it out, I am a true Southern Belle. Raised on a Georgia farm, I’m no stranger to the concept of relying on local produce to create the best recipes.  I’m also a chronic “serial” entrepreneur and am passionate about collaborating with other business owners.  Together we are indeed better as we partner together and share the vast knowledge gained by each partner.

Our company’s Southern roots are reflected in our strong sense of faith, family, community involvement, and our belief that GOOD FOOD=LOVE.

Oh, and I’m happy to report that sweet Bella has not had another seizure!

A BARK FROM OUR QUALITY CONTROL SUPERVISOR- WOOF!

My fancy name is Tyler's Southern Bella, but my people just call me "Bella". After a really scary morning having something Dr. Freddie calls a "seizure," my mama got on the computer thingy and found out that some of the food I was eating could be bad for me. Now she spends a lot of time in our kitchen creating treats that don't have any yucky stuff and lets me and my friends taste all of them to make sure they are yummy too!
