The wonderful thing about this store is that they are a truly socially and environmentally responsible company. They hand-pick every item they sell, from local products up to the larger companies. And Chelsea is quite dedicated to ongoing research. She monitors companies and makes sure that if they’ve had recalls or pollute or have a negative impact on human or animal life that she does not sell their products. In this day and age it is so difficult to monitor the companies I buy from, but Hero’s does the work for me so I know that everything I give to my pets is environmentally and socially responsible as well as top-quality and nutritious.

I went to Hero’s Pets because my dog has always had a really bad coat, bad breath, and was overweight. I spent about an hour talking with one of the fantastic employees at the store and talking about nutrition, supplements, and even behavior. The lady that helped me was the most patient and thorough person and really gave me so much attention. Yes, she had to step away at times to ring up another customer or answer the phone, but with a small business you have to expect that now and then. I could never go into any Petsmart or Petco and get this kind of attention and knowledge. December 2016 Draw with Jazza Challenge of the Month:‘HERO & PET: GAME CHARACTER DESIGN’

The American Humane Hero Dog Awards® are an annual, nationwide competition that searches out and recognizes America’s Hero Dogs – often ordinary dogs who do extraordinary things, whether it’s saving lives on the battlefield, lending sight or hearing to a human companion, or simply providing the tail-wagging welcome a pet owner relishes at the end of a hard day. Dogs compete in seven different categories for the Hero Dog Awards: Law Enforcement/Arson Dogs, Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Military Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs, Guide/Hearing Dogs, and Emerging Hero Dogs (the category for “ordinary” dogs who do extraordinary things). The Hero Dog Awards celebrate the powerful, age-old bond between dogs and people – and give recognition to courageous acts of heroism performed by our four-legged best friends.Hero’s Pets is a leading retailer in the natural pet supplies market. Founded in 2007 in Littleton, Colorado, the company operates a retail store that offers more than 6,500 products from local and ethical national and international manufacturers in the natural, organic, and eco-friendly pet supply market. Our website is currently being professionally redone and we will soon have an online store soon too!After voting by the American public, winners in each category are flown to Hollywood with their human friends to attend the American Humane Hero Dog Awards® gala in Los Angeles. There they walk the red carpet, are recognized in video tributes, receive their Hero Dog category award statue and mingle with celebrities, both two-legged and four-legged! The 2017 American Hero Dog will then be announced to the world.Working as a product rep in the pet food industry taught Chelsea that good information must be found at the source, from the owners of the companies, and not from the reps. Upon understanding the rules, regulations, and practices in the pet food industry, Chelsea and her mother, Kathy, decided to open Hero’s Pets with the intention of creating a place where consumers can come to trust that the products don’t just SAY they are quality but have verified their claims through documentation and evidence.
