Vegan dog treats good enough for humans
By Margie M. Palmer
Shaded Trails isn’t your average dog treat company.
Not only does the Hillcrest-based pet snacks provider specialize in all natural, 100 percent vegan dog treats, they’ve also committed to donating 5 percent of their website orders to their Helping Paws Program, which will help support no-kill animal shelters throughout the U.S.
The company was founded about two years ago, Shaded Trails founder and CEO J.R. Starlin said, adding that his “vegan dog treat adventure” began when he got his English bulldog puppy, Luna. His little girl had stomach issues, he said, which prompted him to begin making his own, all-natural dog treats.
