Our Story

Based on our love for helping animals and their owners, The Grateful Dog was created in 2014 with the hopes of bringing only the best in nutrition to the animals of Transylvania County. We strongly support our local rescues and shelters, and work actively with them to help get homeless animals placed in loving Forever Homes. To date, we have donated several hundred pounds of food to local rescues and continue to work with the community Spay and Neuter group.

We also have an active partnership with the Transylvania County K9 Unit and feed their working K9's our healthiest food free of charge, to help them stay in peak physical condition.

Our customers are considered our family. The driving force behind The Grateful Dog is that we consider both you and your furry companion to be part of our pack, and therefore we strive to make your shopping experience a pleasant one each time.


Just an awesome store with the best customer service you could ask for!!!
