Recent pet food recalls have caused new concerns for pet owners regarding their animal's diets. Not to worry. Matt and Jori Zarra offer a service that's bringing pet owners peace of mind, right to their door.
The Zarras own a pet food delivery service. They sell Nature's Select brand, which is made in the U.S., with no imported ingredients from China, and compares in price to eukanuba and Science Diet.
Now in business for five months, Matt said, "My wife and I took this distributorship over in March of 2007. The original owners started in this area in 2001. We currently have over 600 customers and we are growing every day."
The Zarras' territory covers Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando, and Polk counties.
Nature's Select has been in business since 1995, originating in Orange County, Calif. Paul Cavanaugh, President and Founder stated: "From those beginnings, we now have approximately 40 distributors across the country as we keep expanding our line of natural pet food. Our products are manufactured here in the U.S.A., and the ingredients are also domestic and scrutinized by various state, local, and federal agencies, giving our customers confidence in the safety of what they purchase from us. Highly emphasized from the beginning of the original distributorship here in California to each and every new Nature's Select distributor, is the attention to great service and customer satisfaction, as evidenced by our continued growth throughout the years. We are proud to have Tampa Bay with our family of Nature's Select, to continue this growth and awareness in the Florida area, and to gain the many new and satisfied pet owners we so enjoy having as our clients."
The Zarras were sold on Nature's Select's quality several years ago. Dog owners themselves, they started feeding their dogs the food and were impressed with its purity. Nature's Select doesn't use wheat filler, the cause of many pet's skin rashes and hot spots.
"We started our two dogs on this food in 2002 because of our dogs' skin allergies. They responded beautifully to the food," explained Matt.
Nature's Select uses only all natural ingredients. Foods are made with human grade chicken, fish and lamb, not processed, left over scraps that nearly all of the major brands include in their products.
Whole grains are mixed with the meats, with the exclusion of corn, wheat, wheat products, and wheat gluten. Whole grain brown and white rice is used instead to promote better gestation. No preservatives are added to the food but flax seed is for Omega 3 fatty acids, along with rosemary extract and Vitamins C and E that act as natural preservatives.
The couple also sells a wide variety of supplements and all natural treats. "When prospective customers call we offer samples for their pets to try first," said Matt.
