Our tale begins in 2012 with Jamee, Brian’s lovable Golden-Doodle, bored of her crumby kibble. Switching Jamee over to a raw food diet was easy. Finding her new favourites often out of stock at the pet shop, however, was not.
With a busy work schedule, inconvenient pet store hours were frustrating, too, as was dragging home pounds of kitty litter for Tigger, Jamee’s finicky feline cohort. As things began to get hairy, an idea was born: to open the best Vancouver pet store and pet food delivery service.
Brian didn’t want to just start another business though, he wanted to build one with a heart. And so, the focus from the beginning was to create a company that cares about its customers (two and four-legged), its people and community more than profit.
Nearly a decade later, Jamee’s legacy lives on in Naturally Urban, an ethical, customer-driven pet supply store and delivery service with a difference, garnering over 500 5-star reviews and herds of loyal customers.
