Shinto’s Pet Food Kitchen & Store Announces Another Expansion
This company helps dogs and cats across the country live healthier, longer lives with organic pet foods, treats and health products from its chief nutritionist.
Shinto’s Pet Food Kitchen & Store, a pet food kitchen, is expanding to provide science-based meal plan services to pet owners across the country. Founded in 2011, the company was created to offer organic and nutritious food, treats and health products specially formulated by its owner Lindsey McClerin, pet nutritionist.
McClerin built Shinto’s Pet Food after her dog Shinto fell ill with ovarian cancer when she was 10 years old. Around this time, McClerin had just lost her husband Kip to a brain aneurysm and Shinto was the only one left in her precious family life with Kip. Determined to help Shinto with her illness and keep her healthy, she made it her mission to study pet nutrition and cook Shinto’s meals herself.
As she researched the ideal diet for Shinto, she discovered that frequently packaged pet foods contained preservatives and additives and were lacking in essential nutrients. Stunned by her discovery, she began preparing Shinto meals to increase her white blood cell count. Shinto lived another six years after that.
After her successful assignment, McClerin moved to Grass Valley in 2010. In 2011, she earned her pet nutritionist certification and opened “Shinto’s Pet Food” in her home. Her first in-store experience was at the North Star Farmer’s Market in Grass Valley and soon after she was selling her products at 18 surrounding farmers’ markets.
When she entered the Marin Agricultural Institute Farmer’s Market in San Rafael, the largest in California, her business spawned wholesale accounts. Demand was so high that the store had to expand quickly by adding equipment like freezers and building a physical store. With the help of her family and friends, she opened a physical store in June 2016.
In 2017, she offered cooking classes for pets. Since then, Shinto’s Pet Food has become the go-to store for pet owners in California, especially those with disease-fighting pets. Today, McClerin’s science-backed meal plan services aren’t just about helping pet owners. It also serves as his advocacy to raise the bar for pet care across the country.
“Our vision is to directly participate in the revolution of the commercial pet food industry by setting a higher standard. Our pets deserve better than what the commercial pet food industry is currently providing, which is a lot of cost savings and little nutrition or care for our furry friends,” McClerin says.
According to McClerin, pet owners should always be aware of questionable ingredient labels because definitions can be very different from what they are in human foods, even with seemingly simple ingredients like chicken. They may be stale, spoiled, “condemned”, totally uninspected, or parts of the chicken that contain no meat.
“The healthy ingredients you get from Shinto’s provide all the necessary nutrients without the sensitivities and side effects. Improve the health of your pet’s internal and external organs and restore the vitality they were meant to have by simply improving their diet says McClerin.
