The Perfect Place for Perfect Pet Treats!

Our Story

“Down syndrome: It doesn’t mean I’m down. It means I help people who are feeling down. My smiles are contagious. My laugh is medicine for the heart. My hugs are heavenly. My heart itself is pure gold.”

We started this business for 2 reasons:

  1. To provide the highest quality treats, toys, and products for pet parents.
  2. To give our son, Alex (aka Al Pals), opportunities.

For any parent with a child that has special needs, that journey into adulthood can be scary.  There are not a lot of great opportunities for job/careers post high school.  We decided to take matters into our own hands.  We decided to create opportunities where there weren't any.

We started Al Pals with one small video filmed in our living room.  This video has now been seen over 500,000 times!   Click below to watch how it all started.
