We first met Raleigh in the summer of 2002. He had been found wandering the streets of Raleigh, North Carolina. With the help of some good Samaritans, he made his way to a beagle rescue. Before he got to the rescue, Raleigh had clearly had it pretty rough. He was scrawny, skittish around new people, and had a back-end filled with bird shot. Raleigh needed some help and a chance at a happier life.
It wasn’t long until Raleigh stole our hearts with his sweet disposition and his big, soulful, hound eyes. The day we adopted him, we made a promise to always do the best we could to give him the healthy and happy life he deserved.
Over the years, we spent a lot of time researching and looking for the best pet products we could find. We wanted Raleigh to have healthy treats, toys that engaged him physically and mentally, and comfortable beds where he could rest. As he got older and developed a few age-related health issues, we talked with veterinarians, canine nutritionists, and physical therapists to find out what foods to give him (or not to give him) and what types of activities and exercises we could do with him to keep him feeling good. We learned that there are a lot of great products, designed for pets’ wellness. But sometimes it took a lot of time and effort to track them down. That’s why we created Raleigh & Co.
The goal of Raleigh & Co. is to provide a space where every pet owner can easily find the highest quality supplies to promote the health and happiness of their dog or cat.
