It all started when our founders Kristin and Peter brought home Sawyer. The little Yorkie-Poo refused to eat kibble, and with one look at the ingredients list, Kristin and Peter couldn’t blame him. Plus, they thought, if it smells this bad, it must taste this bad, too! We’re pretty sure that’s a fact, but you couldn’t pay us to try kibble. Instead, we’re upping the standards in the pet food industry.
Once a forensic accountant, Kristin put her investigative skills to good use, and what she learned upset her: With so few Canadian regulations in the industry, our pets are ingesting highly-processed synthetic ingredients and bacteria at every meal that make them sick. Like you, she wanted better for Sawyer. She wanted to prevent illness and pricey vet bills, not guarantee them. And so, Tom&Sawyer was born: All-natural, gently cooked meals made by hand.
