Who We Are & How We Give

Our Story

ReNewedPet was founded in 2015 through the vision of the founder, April Arguin C.P.N., M.P.H., to provide better, safer, more natural products made especially for the hairless pet breeds.

At the time of its conception, April was dealing with a severe skin allergy problem in her own cat Stubbin and was desperately trying to find him some relief. April had previously become very interested in natural skin, and health care products, and had already been making personal skin care products for the previous several years. One day, while applying her own hand-made skin oil, she was just struck with the idea that what her cat, as well as all hairless pets needed, was a better solution for their unique sensitive skin. That was when the very first ReNewedPet product, the skin conditioner was born!

Fast forward and ReNewedPet has now expanded into a team effort!

About your lead artisan/shipper:

Andy may be new to the small business world, however he is not new at all to the pet world. Andy has been a life-long cat lover, leading his first cat "Einstien" to the ripe old age of 22 years. Andy now has the pleasure to be owned by an adorable sweet little Sphynx cat he has named "Sapphire." While Andy brings his love and knowledge of pets to our small business, he also brings another really valuable skill, and that is Andy's knowledge and love for cooking. Andy spent most of his professional life in kitchens creating healthy delicious food for his patrons, and he has now taken those skills and put them to work by becoming our lead artisan here at ReNewedPet. Andy spends his days tirelessly creating each of our ReNewedPet grooming and health products to the highest standards of safety and efficacy. Once your order has been created, Andy is also the man in charge of packaging and securely shipping your order in a timely manner and ensure its safe arrival to you. Andy strives to give everyone and their pets the very best quality, and consistency of products, while delivering the quickest shipping times possible.

Here at ReNewedPet we believe in using business as a force for good. 

Not only do we ensure we are using only the best all natural, non-gmo, and organic products for the safety and health of your pets, but we are very mindful of the earth in all we do and use recycled materials in all of our packaging to keep our business as green and earth friendly as possible.  Beyond this however, we believe in the great power of generosity; we believe wholeheartedly in the intangible power of giving more than you receive in this life.  In alignment with our mission to bring the best care to companion animals through our products, we have also chosen to donate 1% of our total yearly profits each year to our local Humane Society to help those pets currently in need of medical attention and a life-long home.

Thank you for supporting our small business and contributing to our charity efforts.
