Shinto's Pet Food – Organic Dog Food
Shinto's Pet Food - Organic Whole Food for Dogs and Cats
In these hard times a lot of people are interested in self-employment. Turning your passion into a home business can improve your life in more ways than one.
I recently met an amazing woman who has combined her passion for natural foods and nutrition, and her love for her dog, into a successful and growing organic pet food business.
Lindsey McClerin was living in North Carolina, and married to a Chef, when she first got really interested in whole foods and nutrition. She and her husband lived an adventurous life, and after traveling in Mexico for a while made their home in Cancun. That's where they got their dog, a female pekinese/maltese/mexican mutt. They named her Shinto, which means “Way of the Gods."
Tragically, Lindsey's husband Kip died from a brain aneurism at the age of 38. After his death, for the heartbroken Lindsey, Shinto was a living link to her past life with her husband. When Shinto was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and several other ailments at the age of 10, Lindsey was determined to do everything she could to save Shinto's life.
Lindsey had already been eating organic and locally grown foods, and when she started investigating the ingredients in the “quality” dog food she had been feeding Shinto she was shocked. She began making food for Shinto's that was designed to alkalize her system and increase her white blood cell count. Shinto's health improved on her new organic dog food diet and now, 5 years later, she is healthy and cancer free.
Shinto's Pet Food is a “Super Food” for Dogs and Cats
About 4 years ago Lindsey decided to follow her passion and “quit chasing the carrot” as she says. She is now based in Nevada County California. Lindsey sells her organic pet food at Farmers Markets through-out California, as well as shipping orders to her clients across the country. Her business is thriving; no doubt this is partially due to her background in business and marketing.
Although Lindsey's main business is organic dog food, she offers organic food for cats as well. All Shinto's pet food is made with all natural ingredients including chicken, bone marrow, brown rice, vegetables and olive oil, chia seed, chlorella and many other cancer fighting supplements. Everything is gluten, soy and corn free. It is made with whole source vitamins, no synthetic supplements. Lindsey sells her wet organic pet food frozen, and also makes baked (at a low temperature) kibble and treats. She also offers supplement packages and instructions for those who prefer to make their own organic pet food at home.
I think the story of Lindsey McClerin and Shinto's Pet Food is inspirational. It's a perfect example of how one person made a rewarding career for herself by doing something she truly loves and believes in.
