Celebrating their May 25 grand opening, Earthwise Pet Supply of Maricopa launched its Nutrition Center & Wellness Spa for dogs and cats, aka fur babies.

This new business located in The Shops at Maricopa Fiesta is a one-of-a-kind place offering an array of services and products.

Two full-time, professional groomers are available in the Spa to pamper and style pets (cats included). A unique self-bathing station, fully equipped with everything you need to wash and dry your pet, is in-store for your convenience. The staff will even clean up the mess.

“Our team genuinely cares about animals. We all love to engage with our furry friends,” said team member Sophie Del Cotto. “We’re here for your pet, and you, the pet parent.”

A coalition of locally owned and operated stores, Earthwise Pet Supply’s first store was established in California in 1977. It is a company committed to excellence. Their mission is to better the lives of pets and their owners through proper education, exceptional customer service, all-natural products and green business practices.

“Earthwise Pet Supply of Maricopa is a family business that shares the love of our fur families and the joy they bring to our lives,” said Kandice Pyper, the “hands-on” store owner.

Trained by an Earthwise Pet Supply representative, each team member at the shop takes a weeklong food course and is very knowledgeable about the specific brands and products offered.

“Our goal is to provide our customers with an exceptional, informative and beneficial experience,” Pyper said. “We’ll guide you through the process of selecting a diet program specifically for your pet. We do our best to assure that our animal companions are healthy, happy pets. After all, they’re part of the family.”

All the nutritional products available at the store have been selected from a handful of suppliers, including longstanding family companies passed down from generation to generation. There are special discounts for military members and seniors.

“The products we offer are all natural and sourced in the USA,” Pyper said. “We like to support other small businesses just as Maricopa is supporting us. You don’t have to worry where our food comes from. Earthwise Pet Supply does the research for you and adheres to the highest standards. You can now confidently shop locally for the best nutritional pet products available.”

Originally from Canada, Pyper has years of experience with animals. She worked at a pet resort for 10 years and for the SPCA handling animal adoptions and surrenders. New to Maricopa, Pyper loves the warm weather in Maricopa and the opportunity to provide a valuable service based on her love and empathy for animals.

“My team and I are thrilled to be a part of the growing and thriving community of Maricopa. We’re open seven days a week and welcome you to stop by and check us out,” she said. “While you’re here, pick up a free sample of pet food.”
