A Tail of Two Rescues
A Tail of Two Rescues
As Hungry Bark’s founder, I understand the importance of great nutrition on a personal level. A few years ago my life was dramatically transformed by switching to a custom nutritiously-advanced diet, full of superfoods and high-quality proteins.
I had spent years trying to get my health turned around. It wasn't until I worked with a certified nutritionist, who evaluated my specific needs based on my lifestyle and health concerns, that I started to see almost immediate results. He mapped out an eating plan based on what my specific body needed. It was a custom nutrition plan made just for me.
Being a deeply devoted dog owner, it got me thinking. If humans have individual nutrition needs, my 2 rescue dogs must too. I started researching and consulting with pet nutritionists and vets. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and a team of animal nutrition experts, I embarked on starting Hungry Bark and providing dogs with custom nutrition plans made specifically for them.
I set out to create the best food for my dogs so I can spend more years with them, and now I want to share that with you.

It All Began With Shorty
Shorty, my first rescued dog, taught me how important it is for pet-seekers to seriously consider shelters and rescues. With over 3 million dogs entering US shelters each year, adopting rescues and shelter dogs gives us a chance to save animals and develop bonds that last a lifetime.
Then Came Barkley
A few years later, it was time for another fur baby in the family. This was a great opportunity to teach my son about the value and importance of adopting dogs in need. One trip to Jamie’s Rescue in Miami, FL, and Barkley became our next resident pup! It was off to find the perfect dog food for Barkley.
Barkley is now the face of Hungry Bark and is the inspiration behind our logo; handsome, isn’t he? You’ll notice his sweet mug throughout our site because he represents the happiness and pure joy that comes with rescuing.
They Both Deserved Better
Shopping for dog food became incredibly frustrating. Both Barkley and Shorty were very different kinds of dogs, with different needs. Most of the options were the same: crude protein and unhealthy fillers. I wouldn’t eat that food, how could I give it to my dogs?
My dogs deserve healthy, nutritious food. All dogs deserve better.
Because they were both different (breed, age, activity level, allergies, etc), I was convinced that they would thrive with their own specific diet tailored just for them. It had worked for me and I was sure it would work for them as well.
Shorty and Barkley were my inspiration to create Hungry Bark - where you can get custom meal plans packed with superfoods, designed specifically for your dog.
