Stand with Asian-owned pet businesses

Looking to support businesses in your community and across the country that are owned by Asian and Asian-American entrepreneurs? For pet owners, there are a number of great pet businesses to choose from—here are five of our favorites.

Maison De Pawz owner and founder Mei-i
maison de pawZ

Born in NYC, maison de pawZ is an all-natural dog pâwtisserie that uses locally-sourced human-grade ingredients from the Hudson Valley.

maison de pawZ was created by Taiwanese doggy baker Mei-i Zien to reflect her love of the markets in Paris and NYC and their use of the freshest seasonal ingredients (because your dog deserves the best). Every day is a party when you spoil your dog with their fresh baked dog cakes, pup-tarts and biscuits.

Go to maisondepawz.com to shop for steak frites and tuna niçoise treats.

Up Dog Toys founder Michelle Moy
